I’ve had Oly cameras for the last two years and have read many posts on here (and elsewhere) from people complaining of the UI/menu structure. There are lots of others who say that the Panasonic menus are better and easier to use. So, having just acquired a GX7 and spent some time getting into the menu structure and setup, I thought I’d throw my 2c worth into the ring. - Whilst the Oly menus are deep, there are just as many options on the Pany menus – but there’s less depth. I guess this makes finding stuff easier, but the overall complexity of the controls available and the configuration possible is just as complex with both cameras. I think most Oly users get a reasonable feel for where things are pretty quickly and from my experience so far I don’t think the Pany is significantly better. I still find myself scrolling through menus to find a setting that I know exists – “now here was it?...”. - The approach to quick config differs significantly. Oly have the SCP and Pany the quick menu. Actually, I think I prefer the quick menu since it allows access to more features (if you use a custom Q.menu) more quickly. However, the Oly SCP has a simplicity and directness to it that is appealing. The Pany Q.menu also requires more button pressing to change things. - The Custom settings on Pany (C1-3) are much simpler than Oly’s Mysets. Please Oly, get rid of that Scene, Art and three-pictures in one nonsense and give us proper Custom settings!! - The Pany AF UI is quite superb. I love the ability to move the focus point using the touch screen on the rear whilst viewing through the EVF. Fantastic. The Pinpoint AF feature and the Picture-in-picture feature is great too. Big plus there to Pany. - I hate the level gauge on the Pany cameras. It’s really intrusive and annoys me in general! The Oly approach is nicer on the eye. Overall, aside from AF which is a big win for the Pany, I don’t really see that the Pany system is particularly better – just different!
