    So my GX7 died a few months back, and the price shot up again so I have been waiting. Now i'm in the market to buy a replacement, and shelling out nearly 1k for a GX7 isn't so appealing anymore. The GH4 is almost $600 more... I'm curious once people start using it for astrophotography and night time lapse. I like how small the GX7 was, made for easy candid photos, because people arn't so aware of it. Just wondering once people start using it to get opinions of the GX7 vs the GH4 in the astrophotography image quality range. I have external battery adapters/additional batteries already for the GX7 to get 800+ photos for time-lapse, so thats not an issue.
