June 2013 - The last few years have played host to arguably the most significant development in the digital camera market we’ve seen yet – that is, the introduction of the Compact System Camera.

Ultimate Picture Quality
The DMC-GX7 realizes high-quality image recording with real-to-life details through excellent resolution image rendering and color reproduction. Panasonic developed new 16.00-megapixel Digital Live MOS Sensor that achieves both higher resolution and higher sensitivity image recording with less noise in comparison with the predecessor DMC-GX1. The Venus Engine features its advanced noise reduction systems which make it possible to remove large block of noise which was formally hard to detect and helps produce clear, smooth image especially for the nighttime scenery. The combination of the new Live MOS Sensor and the Venus Engine achieves max. ISO25600.
2764K-dot Equivalent High Resoultion Tiltable Live Viewfinder
The newly integrated 90-degree tiltable LVF (Live View Finder) boasts 2764K-dot equiv. high resolution for more free composition and higher visibility. The LVF of the DMC-GX7 uses a display device based on the field sequential system to achieve a high color reproduction of approximately 100%* using AdobeRGB as a reference. By more faithfully reproducing the primary colors, it is able to display beautiful hues that are extremely close to nature, such as deep red roses, vibrant hibiscuses, and ripe, colorful fruit. For this viewfinder, Eyecup DMW-EC1 made of elastic material is sold separately to enhance comfort in viewing either with naked eye or with glasses.
Fast and Accurate Light Speed AF
The LUMIX G adopts Contrast AF for its focus system. Compared with the Phase difference system AF, the Contrast AF boasts higher accuracy especially in shooting with bright lens with small F value. The DMC-GX7 also features high-speed Light Speed AF, making it possible to capture even the fast-moving subject clearly. The camera and the lens exchange the digital signal at max. 240 fps to minimize the time to focus.
Change the Lenses - Image Stabiliser in Camera Body
Panasonic has been integrating POWER O.I.S. / MEGA O.I.S. (Optical Image Stabiliser) in the digital interchangeable lenses to suppress blur caused by hand-shake. To further enhance usability, the DMC-GX7 incorporates Optical Image Stabiliser in the camera body which works as effectively as the MEGA O.I.S. for the first time in LUMIX DSLM cameras. Not only the digital interchangeable lenses without image stabiliser but also classic lenses can be mounted to enjoy blur-free photography.
1920 x 1080p Full-HD Video Recording in AVCHD and MP4
The DMC-GX7 also features full HD 1920 x 1080, 60p (60 Hz) / 50p (50 Hz) smooth, high quality video recording in AVCHD Progressive and MP4 with stereo sound. The practical full-time AF and tracking AF is available in video recording, too. The cinema-like 24p video with the bit rate of max. 24 Mbps or P/A/S/M mode provide richly expressive afterimage with overwhelming image quality. The motion picture quality is greatly improved thanks to the new Digital Live MOS Sensor, too.

Serious small camera
About Me Hobbyist/Enthusiast
Comments about Panasonic LUMIX DMC-GX7 Digital Camera with 20mm Lens - Silver:
I supplemented my Nikon 7000 system with this camera so that I had a camera to take everywhere. I already had a 14-140 lens and a GH1 so Panasonic MFT seemed a logical way to go. The 20mm lens is my preferred lens for the way I use it because with the 14-140 it is getting near SLR size and I prefer the Nikon for action, wildlife and landscape. However for its intended use of photographing friends and pets the results are excellent and the remote control using WiFi is useful although more range would be helpful. In retrospect for me a Fuji X100T might be more suitable but the GX7 is more versatile and cheaper
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I've had this for a couple of months now and have to say I'm really very impressed with the picture quality, particularly when combined with the 42.5mm f/1.2 lens. Size is perfect for carry around all day and recently used this at the Commonwealth, where bulkier kit may have infringed the photography rules.
Very easy intuitive menus
I would highly recommend this camera
About Me Hobbyist/Enthusiast, Professional
I have now used this in low light and bright light conditions with excellent results. The automatic scene selection is good but not perfect so the manual settings are great in tricky situations. Image quality is superb in comparison to DSLR of equivalent price. This a a truly easy camera to carry all day and feel confident that it will suit whatever situation you are faced with.

I have been using a Nikon D90 with 18-200mm lens. I bought the GX7 so that I would have a lighter camera to carry around. The low light picture quality is outstanding with the 20mm f1.7 lens
A pedigree from the Panasonic stable

Impressive but getting a little chunky
Coming from the GX1, this is certainly a size up and noticeably heavier. Slightly annoyingly, the EVF also tends to be flipped up when carrying the camera around your neck although this doesn't actually do any harm. It's also quite slow to start-up and when reviewing a photo for the first time. Otherwise everything else is a notch up on the GX1 as well so if size isn't crucial, it's all worth it! I bought mine with the 20mm f1.7 and it's a great lens.
