    Hi, guys. I think this is more a lens topic than camera so I'm trying it here. I've looked at a lot of pics from the Oly zoom and there's a lot of great shots there. I can't warm up to my EM-5's or Olympus menus so I'm thinking of getting a GX7 for my travels. I've read some opinions that the GX7 IBIS does pretty well compared to the 5 axis in the Olympus, too. Also looked at Sony but I really want IBIS. I know if I buy an a6000 they'll come out with an a7000 a month later. I would think that the 75-300 would be a nice fit on the GX7? To cover all bases I do have the Pana 100-300 but hate the way it feels in it's zoom action, like it has sand in the mechanism. How many out there are using the GX7/Oly 75-300 combo and what do you think? I think I would also use the Oly 12-50 kit lens as the short companion.
