Excerpt: Since there's rumor going around that the GX7 has been discontinued & will be replaced by the GM2 buy one while you can. I Love this camera. Great IQ, love the small size and the fact that it looks like a glorify P&S. Camera fits my hands like a glove & I love the grip. The camera has IBIS, twin dials, a built in flash, EVF, & 9 function buttons. The EVF is good not great, but still very usable. If you buy this camera & wear glasses buy the accessory EVF cover.
Pros: Fast/accurate auto-focus, Good Image Quality, Good Image Stabilization, Good in Low Light, Large Clear LCD, Small / Compact
Summary: Awesome little camera! Like the last reviewer said, it is the pal version, but the video files play on my computer and Samsung Note pro 12.2 without any issues. Also, when I plug it into my tv via hdmi, it also works just fine. There is a setting in the camera menu with the option to output to Ntsc so no problems there either.
Great camera, but video is 50fps (not 60) = euro version. But no PAL affect on video files played on a computer.

Summary: No complaints on the camera so far. I was happy to get access to a black version for the U.S. but the camera only does video in 50fps which is Euro specs. Other reviewers mention PAL and so forth, but the files are not TV signal quality, they are computer files. Since B and H has a black version, I took my chances and figured it was the newly available US version. After reading the manual, I realized it was the Euro version.
Summary: This review is only on the body since I purchased a longer zoom lens for bird photography. Coming from a Nikon P7100 with a larger crop factor, this is my first mirco-four thirds camera and third panasonic. I purchased the GX7 primarily for the enthusiast features, size, and lens selection and am not disappointed. The exposure compensation override was my main concern but it is easy to use and needed.
Excerpt: The Lumix GX7 is a sweet compact fully featured camera. It takes some beautiful pictures. And as a beginner who wants to learn more about photography, it supplies me with the full feature set of a DSLR without having the weight.
Pros: Easy To Use, Fast/accurate auto-focus, Good Image Quality
Excerpt: I shoot with this camera as a walk around street shooter and for weddings and events. I love the size, the easy programming allowing me flexibility in lens choice, I like the Pany lenses I have and the 4/3 system is great for adopting other lens types. The picture quality and color rendition were a pleasant surprise and I get quite usable pictures up to ISO 3200. Probably not higher than that though. The two things I don't like are the short battery life.
Pros: Easy To Use, Fast/accurate auto-focus, Good Image Quality, Good Image Stabilization, Good in Low Light, Short Lag Time, Small / Compact
