Excerpt: This review can only repeat the same old accolades already given to this camera. And it's likely it will be soon replaced with an upgrade given the attractive pricing. So I wondered if I should wait of jump in. Having fallen in love with the M4/3 system after buying the GM1 last summer, I was tempted to get the GM5. But the beauty and functionality of the GX7 swayed me. I frankly wanted something a bit more grippable than the GM1 and wasn't looking for pocketable.
Pros: Easy To Use, Fast/accurate auto-focus, Good Image Quality, Good Image Stabilization, Good in Low Light, Right sized
Excerpt: I have been a solid Nikon shooter before this camera. I have used 4 Nikon cameras the last of which was a Nikon D800. I cannot say this camera gives the same pixel resolution as the D800 but when you put a good lens on it it is close enough. This also is my 4th micro 4/3 camera. I have started with GF1 (GX1, GX7) and now E-M1. I was always ok with the 16mp.
Excerpt: I bought this small micro 4/3 as a environmental travel camera. I walked 355 miles of the Camino de Santiago pilgrimage trek in rain, sleet, snow, frost, and wind last March with the GX7 exposed most of the time. The GX7 performed flawlessly!! I know the specs say the GX7 is not weather sealed, perhaps not, but it performed much better than expected in all but water submersion.
Pros: Easy To Use, Good Image Quality, Good Image Stabilization, Good in Low Light, Great Choice Small Lenses, Large Clear LCD, Small / Compact
Summary: I was looking for a camera that I could throw in my bag and keep with me at all times. This is the one. It is compact, light weight, easy to use and produces beautiful images. This thing is tiny with the added benefit of having an EVF and interchangeable lenses. No more ditching my DSLR and just using my phone.
Summary: As advertised. Solidly built advanced machine for those who want more than a point and shoot. The internal stabilization meant a lot to me as opposed to lens stabilization as I have a number of olympus primes. Love the form of this camera.
Excerpt: I moved to this from a five year old Canon T1i. I haven't sold my Canon stuff and love Canon glass..... A lot of what follows is probably due to 5 years of camera technology being brought upon me all at once, and may not be m43 specific. If you buy new bodies every year, you will have a different perspective. The GX7 is so much fun to shoot. Perfect ergonomics. Its just big enough to be comfortable in my larger hands.
Excerpt: This camera is as perfect as a camera gets for me! The Construction is top notch with a cast metal frame. It has a real quality feel to it. The GX7 focus peaking implementation is the best I have seen. The Electronic Viewfinder (EVF) is bright and adjustable. It is the only viewfinder of all the micro 4/3 cameras that allows me to see the entire image without vignetting while wearing my glasses. The GX7 is one of the most ergonomic cameras I have used.
Pros: Easy To Use, Fast/accurate auto-focus, Good Image Quality, Good Image Stabilization, Good in Low Light, Large Clear LCD, Nice Body Color, Short Lag Time, Small / Compact
it mounts all kinds of excellent and affordable Panasonic and Olympus lenses
