Panasonic GX7 reviews:

With its body made of a magnesium alloy, the GX7 looks like a $1000 camera. The GX7 is an enthusiast mirrorless camera and it is a lot smaller that any of its DSL rivals. You can read more about these things on website, that concludes:

 We like the photo and video quality, performance, customizable controls, and silent shooting mode. That said, the limitations on the in-body IS system, the tendency to close down the aperture in Program mode, and lack of in-camera Raw processing keep the GX7 from earning our highest recommendation.

The Panasonic Lumix GX7 produces noise-free images at ISO 100 to 1600 with limited noise starting to appear at ISO 3200. The night photograph is excellent with the maximum shutter speed of 60 seconds allowing you to capture plenty of light. You can find more on the Panasonic GX7 review from, that concludes:

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX7 is the best Panasonic compact system camera to date, and one of the best interchangeable lens cameras that we’ve ever reviewed. Offering a winning combination of outstanding image quality, excellent performance, deep feature-set and great design, the new GX7 deserves to be a run-away success.
