The New Panasonic GX7 is now shipping in Asia (see Amazon Japan). And one of our readers just sent me the picture of the GX7 arrival (image on top). You can open the GX7 RAW files with Silkypix. the new version has just been released with full GX7 support.
And a new review has been posted by one of my favorite sites, Luminous Landscape (Click here). They write:
As far as overall image quality goes, the GX7 should satisfy all but the pickiest compulsive gear-head, let alone practical photographers. Frankly, over the past couple of years the differences between sensor performance on most cameras has gotten so close that it takes very large prints and 100% pixel peeping to tell the difference. Also, most cameras do quite well up to about ISO 3200, and few of us shoot at higher ISOs in the real world.
The real differences between cameras and camera performance has now shifted to lenses and those features which allow us to shoot and work more productively. In that regard the new Panasonic GX7 comes off very well indeed.
