The Panasonic GX8 - Do those extra pixels count for anything?
'So maybe there is a point to all these 'pixel wars' after all, but we just haven't seen the real benefits yet. In any case, I've always thought it worthwhile to get the best output I can from my cameras to make what I shoot is as future proof as possible.'

Panasonic Lumix DMC-G7 - in-depth review and reappraisal of an underestimated camera.

Panasonic Lumix DMC-G7 - in-depth review and reappraisal of an underestimated camera.
'But if you are interested in hybrid and are serious about shooting some (more than) decent stills and video, without havng a huge budget to expand your choices, then you won't go far wrong with the Panasonic Lumix DMC-G7. It's relatively cheap, unfussy and produces results way above it's 'pay grade.'  And I can't think of any higher praise than that. '

PANASONIC G7 COMPARED TO OLYMPUS OM-D E-M5 II

PANASONIC G7 COMPARED TO OLYMPUS OM-D E-M5 II

The Panasonic G7 - Latest in a distinguished line.
'Ever since buying that Panasonic G1 back in 2008, I've owned and used the G1. G2, G3, G5, and G6 and see no reason not to buy the G7. As a cheap(ish) light, small camera capable of 4K video and stills as well as the usual m4/3 image quality, there is a lot to like.'
