I have been using this camera for around 6 months now and decided to write a review because of how much this little camera has surprised me. I am into hiking so I needed a camera I could carry around all day and that had good image quality. More specifically, I needed a camera that was light on weight, could take RAW photos, and had a decent lens selection. The MFT platform seemed perfect for me so I took a chance on Olympus rather than the GX-7 and I was not disappointed.
Cost of body and cost of lenses (25mm Panny Prime is perfect and 150 dollars)
Selection of lenses (both Panny and Olympus)
Construction of the camera is rock solid and has a nice retro look to it (especially in the silver/ black color)
Video looks crisp and smooth, despite what some people say
The feel of the dials and the layout of all the buttons.
Picture Quality is fantastic
The company you're buying it from ( LCD stopped working and Olympus had it fixed and shipped back to me within 2 weeks for free)
Live Comp Mode is really cool when taking star trails, will include a pic below taken with the mode
EVF and LCD screen are bright and have almost no delay.
Battery Life, not really a con bc I bought 2 extra batteries for 20 dollars.
Camera can feel small in the hands
AF is not the best with moving targets.
NAVIGATION SCREEN IS STILL CONFUSING
