Summary: Panasonic's Lumix DMC-GX7 is arguably the company's most enthusiast-focused mirrorless camera yet to hit the market. Back in 2011, Panasonic released the DMC-GX1 in a move to appease those who grew more and more disappointed as the promising GF-series got smaller and simpler, with fewer controls as the series progressed.
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: 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
