Hi,

I've a fair few Oly lenses + a flash but I'm looking at the GX7 to improve video.

Is there anything (other than IBIS not being as good) should I know or worry about should I change? Such as lenses not working as well, or the flash not working at all.

Now a good time as over here in the UK for three days the cashback is going up to £100, taking it to £300 after cashback.

I could look at the GH3, but its a bit bigger than I'd want.

The one thing I would say is that unless you plan to shoot video using a tripod or some form of stabiliser you will also need to consider a stabilised lense. The Panasonic 12-35mm f/2.8 makes an excellent combo for shooting video with the GX-7.
