The GX7 is in Stock and shipping at Amazon US (Click here). And it is also easily on top of the most sold mirrorless camera ranking (you can see it here). And there are alreayd plenty of new tests and reviews to report today:
Our friend Tyson Robichaud (Click here) posted the first part of his ongoing GX7 review. He likes the camera a lot but also marked some quirks that can hopefully be fixed by Panasonic via fw update:
“Oddly, if you are using a Lumix lens that also has OIS, the GX7 will disable the In Body Image Stabilization and as far as I can figure out, you cannot use it. This also follows a very odd omission of the lack of IBIS for video requiring optical stabilization for video shooters. Silly. I certainly hope this is remedied in a near future firmware update.”
Hardwarezone wrote a very positive conclusion:
“The Panasonic Lumix GX7 has genius. When I first learned about the camera I was not impressed, but when I started to use it I became impressed by how smoothly the camera handles. When I got the chance to use it side by side with the Olympus PEN E-P5 I became even more enamoured with the camera. On paper, the GX7 seems like it doesn’t hold up to many of the E-P5′s specs. But Panasonic’s great strength is in making their cameras easy to use, and that’s a metric you can’t judge on paper.”
And there are more test here:
GX7 test at Dime. And Jonas sent us a link to his own test: “I did a quick videotest with a GX7 and a slider. Have a look man! It’s all filmed as flatt as possible. -5,-5,-5,0 Natural style on 1080p 50fps then converted to 24fps 720p in premiere elements 11. http://youtu.be/DEoEJ23B7Ac”
