Excerpt: I wanted a quality camera, with a nice size sensor one step above the point and shoot cameras but not as expensive as a full frame digital SLR camera and this is the happy medium. It has a nice ISO range, comparable to those of higher end cameras and comes with plenty of features that are really convenient, like the tilting LCD touch screen, the pop up flash, the flip-up viewfinder and the wireless connectivity.
Pros: Easy To Use, Good Image Quality, Good Image Stabilization, Large Clear LCD, Small / Compact
Summary: This Panasonic camera delivers excellent images, super speedy autofocus and detailed high ISO images. The Wifi connectivity isn't bad either allowing a lot of functionality compared to other camera's in its category.
Great camera, make sure you get that GX7+20mm lens combo!

Summary: I love this camera. I bought it to take pictures of my daughter and the pictures are beautiful! I only use auto for now because it takes me too long in manual but oh well. It's smaller than a DSLR so I can take it easily around, even while I am holding my daughter. The only reason I am putting 4 stars is because of the price. It's really expensive, but I guess it's worth it for lifetime memories.
Excerpt: I was used to carrying my Canon 5DmkII everywhere with me as my main camera, but then I read more and more about mirrorless micro4/3 systems so I decided to try it out.My main decision was between the Sony a6000 and Panasonic Gx7. I went with the GX7 because it seemed to have more fun features, despite having a smaller sensor.
Pros: Good Image Quality, Good Image Stabilization, Large Clear LCD, Nice Body Color, Small / Compact, Video
Summary: I have been shooting with a GH3 for the past couple of years. It's great, but I wanted something lighter. Enter the GX7. I couldn't justify spending $1100-$1200 for this camera & lens when it came out, so I waited until the price dropped. Physical characteristics & functions --Perfect size for me. Any smaller would be too small. (I had thought of the GM5, but glad I didn't get it for this reason--the GX7 is as small as I care to go for handling purposes.
Excerpt: I upgraded from a panny GH1 to the GX7 and I am glad I did. The only hesitation I had was that I was tempted by the Oly E-m1 splashproofing. I sure wish Panasonic would add this feature to their M4/3 cameras. I take my camera out hiking almost every weekend. Tough lighting, tough conditions.
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
Cons: Limited Zoom, Poor Flash, Short Battery Life
Excerpt: Well designed for compactness but dials and buttons are still accessible. Has two dials so one can change the mode and another dial for exposure compensation. Viewfinder is nice and clear and the LCD screen is a nice size. Except for the full articulation screen of the GH series this one fits the bill for what have you. And with Lumix lenses it takes up only a tiny bag for quick get away....so light and does so much....triumph of microelex.....
Pros: Fast/accurate auto-focus, Good Image Quality, Good Image Stabilization, Large Clear LCD, Nice Body Color, Pint Size, Small / Compact
Summary: I'm still struggling to learn about my GX7; that's why I rated it as 4 out of 5. Once I get comfortable and competent in using it, I'm likely to rate it 5 out of 5. So far, I'm liking it a lot.
Excerpt: This is the third Panasonic camera I've owned and they have become my favorite. While I've only had the GX7 for a few days I can say it's the best one so far. Test pics I've taken are excellent. I'm still learning how to use it with the 45-200 lens I purchased, and how to work the touch screen so that my settings remain set. It's just a matter of time and scaling the learning curve. So far I'm loving it. The build quality is the best of any Panasonic I've owned.
Pros: Easy To Use, Fast/accurate auto-focus, Good Image Quality, Good Image Stabilization, Great Zoom, Large Clear LCD, Nice Body Color, Short Lag Time
Excerpt: I've been using Panasonic M43 cameras since the DMC-GH1, and they have consistently improved over the years. I use an assortment of lenses, including the excellent Olympus 75mm f/1.8, which - as all Olympus M43 lenses do - lacks image stabilization. So I was delighted to discover the DMC-GX7 with nearly all of the latest camera innovations such as Wi-Fi, NFC, focus peaking, zebra stripe exposure warning, etc., PLUS in-body-image-stabilization (IBIS).
Pros: Easy To Use, Fast/accurate auto-focus, Good Image Quality, Good Image Stabilization, Good in Low Light, Large Clear LCD, Short Lag Time, Small / Compact
Cons: No Ibis When Shooting Vid, No Video Ibis, Perhaps Too Small, Short Battery Life
