So I got my GX7 w/14-42mm last Friday. Here is what I think so far. Build Great build. Feels solid but as a lot of others mentioned its not as solid feeling as the EM5. Not a problem if you've never held an EM5. Dials have a very good clicky feel and have just enough give. Buttons have a very distinct click when pressed. Might come off as feeling cheap but I prefer them much more to the EM5s squishy tiny buttons. Ergonomics Now this is the biggest reason I switched from the EM5. Large grip with faux leather feels great. Easy one handed operation if you wanted. Dials are nicely placed, especially the rear dial. Buttons on the back are spaced well and have little problem finding the one I want. MF-AF switch is a really great feature that I think all m43 cameras should have. The AEL button in the switch is large and easy to hit. Great for those that want to use it for for AF and the shutter button only for shutter release. Evf placement is good for left eye shooters like myself. Our face can be placed farther away from the controls so things aren't all cramped. EVF Its large. Not huge, but a little larger than my EM5 was in 3:2 ratio. Its bright and very saturated. I think its a little too saturated and contrasty for my taste. However its still a great evf. Also its super sharp. I do prefer it over the EM5. Tearing is very minimal, and when it does happen its barely noticeable. IBIS Its there. It works. I only have a Oly 45mm to test with it and got shots at 1/25th. Ibis only engages below 2 seconds and I do not think a firmware update will ever give us in viewfinder stabilization. Its just a technical limitation of the mechanical 2axis. And for those wondering, yes the 5 axis is better. I say just be happy with any stabilization of prime lenses. My Canon cameras never gave me that and I was still happy. IQ Its good. Just look at peoples posts. Its not something to worry about. I was able to manipulate raws very well in Lightroom 5. All in all this is what I wanted. A camera that's comfortable to shoot with where I don't keep hitting the wrong buttons or can't really reach the back dial like my EM5. When I hit buttons I get a clicky conformation that I hit it. Has a small focus point for single AF like my old DSLRs. And my face doesn't take up all the room on the back of the camera. Hope this helps some people.
