With a new 16-million-pixel sensor and a clever tiltable electronic viewfinder, the GX7 could be one of the best system cameras we’ve seen, says Phil Hall. Read the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX7 review...

Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX7 review – The competition

Perhaps the closest rivals to the GX7 are the Olympus OM-D E-M5 and the Fujifilm X-E1. Both cameras fall into the same price range as the GX7, while all three models offer virtually an identical resolution of around 16 million pixels.

The Fujifilm X-E1 has the luxury of the larger APS-C-sized sensor featuring the firm’s clever X-Trans technology, to deliver some of the best results we’ve seen from a sensor of that size. However, it lacks a tiltable touch-sensitive display and the snappy AF of the GX7.

While the Olympus Pen E-P5 may appear to be the more natural competitor for the GX7, its lack of integrated viewfinder means that the flagship Olympus OM-D EM-5 may offer more competition as it delivers a comparable performance.
