Quote:I find it way too big for the sensor size. Similar size to the X-Pro from Fuji.
The only downside to the GX7/80/85 series is their EVF. Why on earth does Panasonic use 16:9 EVFs in these?? Makes no sense at all since it's cropped to 4:3 and thus becomes much smaller than it should. Plus, it's a sequential EVF leading to tearing and rainbow effects. I almost think they do it on purpose to deter potential buyers and "force" them to get the more expensive GX8.
Strange, the GX8 EVF got much better reviews than the pen-f. But that's only once comparison.
As I asked Klaus, have you had a chance to hold it? See the comments I left him in regards to its actual size. I too am worried because it was compared to the x-pro, Which did surprise me how big it is when I handled it.
This camera wasn't even on my radar until I clicked on it at B&H. Whats odd is you can by the camera alone for ~$1kUS, or you can by the kit with a 12-60, extra battery, and 32Gb card, and carrying bag (probably nothing I would use) for the same price.
