Excerpt: I'm little bit disappointed with a pic quality I'm getting with Lumix GX7. I like camera but it takes the same quality of pics as my Nikon P600. GX7 came with kit lens 12-42mm, that I know is the cheapest lens for MFT, My question - is should I invest any more money in buying lens or I would not get...
Excerpt: Camera is good at certain optimal settings, in indoors image quality sucks after ISO800. It has performed very poorly in video focussing too, on given optimal lighting situation this camera focus systems works very well, but in indoors like birthday parties etc..
Pros: Easy To Use, Good Image Stabilization, Large Clear LCD, Nice Body Color, Small / Compact
Cons: Poor Flash, Poor Image Quality, Short Battery Life
Summary: I received both batteries relatively quickly through the mail in a simple white package, with the batteries packaged separately. I charged both batteries up, but one of them did not work at all.
Excerpt: Somehow, I find it hard to like this camera, unlike the GH1, GX1 and now the GM1, which I always felt comfortable with right off the bat... I got the GX7 back in October because so much fuss was made about how good the sensor was and since one of my main concerns with the Lumix MFT system to-date...
Panasonic Customer Support gives a poor customer experience.

Summary: The camera arrived with a defective battery that does not charge. The light on the charger blinks, indicating a bad battery (or overheated battery or dirty terminals, which are not the case). I spent eons on the phone talking to Panasonic Support. and then gave up in disgust.
Excerpt: Lumix G1, having used the G6 (lovely handling IQ similar to G1) and sold it, I now have had the GX7 for 3 weeks. Having lost a lot of money on the G6 I bought a used GX7. The build is much improved, handling good and image quality much improved.
Excerpt: I purchased this to repace my GX1 and gain the integrated viewfinder. The optional viewfinder was the biggest weakness of the GX1. On the plus side for the GX7, the controls, size, image quality are all excellent.But no amount of diopter adjustment could give me an acceptably clear image in the...
Pros: Easy To Use, Fast/accurate auto-focus, Good Image Quality, Good Image Stabilization, Good in Low Light, Large Clear LCD, Small / Compact
Summary: Usually while wearing polarized sunglasses, an EVF is usable in landscape mode and unusable in portrait mode. This is reversed in the GX7, where the view is distorted in landscape mode but clear in portrait (again, while wearing polarized sunglasses.
fantastic pictures, wifi function doesn't work, panasonic customer service is terrible!

Summary: This is a terrific micro 4/3 camera, the pictures are breathe taking if you have the right lens on it. I got myself an olympus 45mm f1.8 for portraits and all I can say it is absolutely stunning.
Summary: Feature wise this camera is a pretty decent upgrade for my GX1. Quite a bit bigger though and I don't entirely like design of it's grip. What is really disappointing is wifi function which I had high expectations for. It goes for both usability and actual functioning.
