Lumix GX7

Updated new video from the Lumix product manager

Another very interesting camera announcement, this time a micro 4/3's sensor, recently they have had some excellent new offerings, including the older Olympus E-M5 and the newer E-P5 here

This one ticks all the right box's: dual control wheels, AE/AF lock button, good auto focus,  hi-res tilt screen, interchangeable lenses, touch screen menu (includes AF point), state of the art tilting electronic view finder, a new 16mp sensor that includes image stabilization and a built in flash, an enthusiast's camera for sure.

The Lumix GX7 has a wide range of features and can use a wide range of lenses, including the excellent Olympus  45mm and  75mm primes. This looks like a pretty complete camera, it has all the controls in the right place, a new Panasonic 16mp sensor and promising auto focus, we shall see when the full reviews are out.

Interview with Ian Berry in Rome.

Things are looking better in the Micro Four Third's world and I am looking forward to carrying around a smaller camera some of the time that can give me excellent image quality.
