The GX7's nearest rival is the Sony NEX 7 , a long-time Stuff favourite. In fact the GX7 shares very similar styling, specs and price with the Sony. The GX7 is about a centimetre bigger in all dimensions, and while it's not what you'd call a big camera,...

The Panasonic GX7 is a full-featured mirrorless camera that offers very good photo and video quality, a highly customizable interface, plenty of useful features, and robust performance. It's marred by a so-so viewfinder, lack of in-camera Raw conversion,...

The Lumix GX7 can't fail to please, as Panasonic has ticked all the right boxes with this interchangeable lens compact. In fact, it would have made a practically flawless camera if it hadn't been for the EVF being a bit too prone to simmer and rainbow...

Yes it looks expensive unless you're directly comparing it with rivals, but weighing up the inherent restrictions and advantages of the Micro Four Thirds format, we'd be so bold as to say that the GX7 is the best G-series compact camera Panasonic has produced to date. Narrowly missing out on a coveted fifth star, it's a veritable G-whizz.

Panasonic’s LUMIX GX7 is the most feature-packed compact camera we’ve seen. All of these features are useful to varying degrees, but the overall package is a versatile one. The GX7 is a great compromise between the small size of a compact camera and the power of a DSLR.

So, in that respect, the GX7 is a big win over the E-P5. You don't have to worry about carrying around a bulky EVF attachment—which, in our opinion, ruins the classic good looks of the E-P5—and you can't misplace what's built into the camera....
