Panasonic LUMIX GX7 Shooting Impression by Bernie DeChant

Before to catch up with some GX7 news here is something strange: Damian Mc Gillicuddy (Click here) launched an intriguing competition. You can win “something” that they can’t say what it is. All they can say is the winner needs an up to date passport and ready to travel sometime after 1st September. Open to anyone though we won’t pay air fares for people out of the UK. My guess is that it’s related to the E-M1 launch…

GX7 news:

Giulio Sciorio posted part two of the ongoing GX7 review at SmallcameraBigpicture:

Cutting through the tech jargon, what you get is a cleaner image and more dynamic range at every ISO which is to be expected when you get a next gen camera. Personally I was not expecting this tech to come until we see the GH3MKII but hey I’m not complaining!

Full GX7 review at Pocket-Lint:

The Lumix GX7 is the package deal. It’s bursting with features, it’s a pleasure to use and it produces some excellent shots. Pro-spec features such as a 1/8000th sec maximum shutter speed and that tilt-angle viewfinder further bolster the package deal that, straight of of the box, is unlike anything else out there on the market.

E-P5 and GH3 win Eisa award (yes, the one prize where everybody wins).

FacebookShare

I got multiple mails from readers pointing me to the Eisa award 2013-2014 announcement. The E-P5 and the GH3 won a prize. But as I repeat every year, with full respect to the Eisa community…these prices always look like a bit “made up” so that every company gets at least one prize. While both the E-P5 and Gh3 certainly are well made cameras it’s hard to take these prize very seriously.

Anyway, here are the “winners” for each category:

E-M1 price same as the Canon 6D.

FacebookShare

I know we are comparing apple and oranges here. While the 6D has the FF sensor advantage the soon to be announced E-M1 has many superior features. But right now you can grab the 6D for the same rumored price of the E-M1….$1499 at BigValue on eBay (Click here).

So my question to you is:

Do you feel the E-M1 could be overpriced?
