Finally, after waiting nearly a week, and most of the morning, I got my camera. Panasonic GX1, used, body, for a fair price (I think). First impressions: excellent condition,no marks, only a few hundred shutter acutations. Happy so far. Ive played around with it and yes, it has a lot of manual control, yes, it is very customisable, but I don't find it any more so than the NEX 7, and to be honest, for my needs, the custom options on the other NEX models suited pretty well. The AF on the Oly 45/1.8 is very snappy, but the Sigma fails to lock focus A LOT of the time, to the point where I wonder if its defective. I think I'll get a replacement just to be sure. I like the little flash, it doesn't lock in bounce like some folks but its easy to hold in a consistent bounce position and gives even lighting. Now as to image quality - its surprisingly good, not because its not a NEX but because of the smaller sensor I thought it wouldn't be as good as it is. The shot below of Bella (dane) is at iso 12800, which was set automatically by the camera. FInally, Im not sure it's a keeper for me, I like NEX, and find that the & performs well enough for the GX1 to not REALLY be an option for me, but we will see. I like trying out different things, some stick, some don't.
