The Panasonic Lumix GX7 is the latest camera in the GX line. Its predecessor is the Lumix GX1 from 2011, and this new body is apparently such an upgrade that Panny was able to skip over five whole version numbers. The 16-megapixel GX7 looks sharp, both in terms of aesthetics and specs. There have been a couple of Sony NEX cameras with built-in electronic viewfinders, but the Lumix GX7 is the first mirrorless camera I’ve seen with a 90-degree tilting built-in eyepiece.GX7 looks like a really slick, nice upgrade from my current GX1, although i’m not sure if it’s worth $1000.
