After a long time I managed to upgrade from the, almost antique, Panasonic Lumix G1 to a very little used, bought in February 2015 for 450 $ Panasonic Lumix GX-7. I pay 360 $ (with shipping) 3 days ago. When I got it in my hands it became love at first sight, I never seen a more sexy camera in my life. And I couldn't wait to get to test it. And yesterday I got to do that a little, the pictures I got to take are mostly closeup of flowers though. What I learned so far, about the camera: + Ergonomics: Very solid build quality, feels a lot better then the old G1 (even though I never had problems with the G1 on that side except for one small problem), the grip feels so good (and better then G1 because the texture feels better even though the grip is smaller, the G1 texture is so low quality that it rubs off at the smallest scratch and becomes shiny slippery plastic). The tilting screen works great and looks awesome, same with the EVF and the number of buttons and costume Functions is incredible (for me) and even a bit scary (at first). - Ergonomics: I find it hard to change lenses because the release mount is so close to the edge of the camera and it makes it feel like the camera will slip out of my hands and when I try to grip and release the lens I always touch the screen with my fingers, I need to find a balanced way of changing the lenses and get used to it. The screen doesn't come out when shooting upright (like G1) so I will have to get used to that limitation, I do shoot vertical often. I wish there was a dedicate control (that can be assigned) to ISO as there are 3 dials (I would have liked the push dial to activate ISO control in Aperture Mode for example) but no one but Fujifilm (XT-1) offer direct ISO control (and I never understood why because it feels like ISO is more useful and more used then EV Comp). The dials do turn a bit hard but I guess they will loosen up a bit more with time and it makes it less likely to turn by accident. + Features: Peaking is so nice to have and it makes manual focus so easy and a joy, and I don't take so many pictures because of it (with G1 I usually take 3-5 shots and check later which one has better focus). IBIS looks useful when the lens doesn't have it, I didn't get to test it much though. - Features: The biggest disappointment so far with this camera is the thing that I love the most too: Focus Peaking. I love shooting with legacy lenses. But I noticed almost half the time Focus Peaking doesn't show up when you want it, there where a lot of times where there was not contrast highlights where you want to put the focus (and not before or after that point too). I tried changing the sensitivity and the color but still the same. It's very frustrating. When it works it's brilliant, when it doesn't it feels like using the G1 again (well maybe not exactly because the screen is higher resolution and the magnification box is a lot better, but still). And it's not a problem of high enough contrast because there was contrast, enough that I could see the sharpness. Weird. But enough with my ranting, I still love the camera and there are still a lot I need to learn and test. and I will get that chance today as I will go to an Air Show. To bad I only have the Panasonic 14-42mm f 3.5-5.6 kit lens (and the only AF lens) and the longest lens I have is a M42 Revuenon 50mm f 1.8. I will post bellow a few of the I made yesterday, they are edited in Lightroom to my liking.
