Does anyone know if the GX7 has NO AA filter?
Yes, it has no AA filter.
Where did you learn this from? I've gone through half-a-dozen press releases and 'first look' articles and I've not seen any mention of the AA filter (or lack thereof).
See line #2 in this article Panasonic Announces New M4 / 3 system anti-camera DMC-GX7 - Technology News
I saw it mentioned in at least a couple of the first look mini reviews I read.
That translation is garbled enough that I can't tell if it's an auto-translation of an actual press-release or just of a paraphrase of a rumor.
Panasonic's press-release doesn't mention it. The first looks at DPReview, Imaging Resource, CameraLabs, TechRadar, and ePhotoZine also make no mention of it.
That Best-News web site also had this gem:
Oh wait! it's on the internet, it must be true!
Yeah, best to wait until the reviews come out before you draw any specific conclusions about the sensor. All we know for sure so far is that it's 'completely new' and therefore better in every possible way.
I'm not even sure testing will settle it. There was an early rumor that the E-PL5 had no AA filter, and people ran with it, long after the camera had been reviewed.
The thing that would settle it definitively is Panasonic themselves issuing a statement. The fact that they haven't put it front and center in their press release (in contrast to the D800E, D7100, K5-IIs, RX1R etc.) makes me doubtful.
