After reading nothing but positive reports, it appears the first unflattering report of the GX7 has appeared. A First Look at the Panasonic Lumix GX7 in Bristol | MirrorLessons â€“ The Best Mirrorless Camera Reviews 2013 It particular two of the features that I was most looking forward to, the EVF and the IS were less than stellar according to their reports. The EVF while looking great on paper didn't deliver. I did read that it was good, not great from other sources but this is one of the first I can recall that compared It directly to the VF-4. And maybe the VF-4's detachable is just that much more fantastic while the GX7's is serviceable but at least for me I would rather have an A+ detachable EVF than a C+ built in. Same goes for the IS. Some IS is better than none I suppose but again it seems at least according to their reports that its less than stellar. While I knew that it wasn't going to be as effective as the 5-axis, at least I hoped that it would be noticeable. But again at least according to this, more of a spec filler than it is effective in the real world. This just goes to show that there is no such thing as a perfect camera. And specs on paper can be misleading. On paper the GX7 looked to be as close as I can recall for my needs. I'll still keep my preorder as I want to see if I can make do with these 2 issues but at least now I think I may at least pick up a E-P5 and give it s fair shot. I know that the E-P5 has its share of issues too (flash too easily triggered, smaller grip, not as good video, etc) so I don't want my post to be confused with any Olympus ******ism. Anyone have any thoughts?
