I just ordered the black GX7 w/20 from Henry's. Now that the horse has left the barn, does anyone know if there are any potential issues with compatibility or warranty? (I'm in the U.S.).
My experience with M43 has been the G2, the GX1, the GH2 and the EM-5.
The most "comfortable" cameras, as far as holding them and convenience of controls and menus, are the G2 and the GH2.
I really like the solidity and quality construction of the EM-5 but I can't seem to get accustomed to the feel of the camera in my hands. It's just wrong somehow (for me). And the menus make me crazy. However, I love the customization options and the IBIS. And it looks cool (not that that is important . . .)
I was hoping the EM-1 would address some of the issues but the price is just excessive to me.
I liked the size of the GX1 but realized I just can't do without an LVF.
So, I hope the GX7 will be "the camera" and I can sell the others and quit looking.
I'm disappointed about no mike (sp?) and I wish the IBIS worked with video, but video is secondary for me so I guess I can live with that.
Sometimes I get the feeling the camera companies leave features like that lacking just so they can include them in a later model and keep us on the upgrade path.
But that's probably just my cynicism kicking in.
Anyway, the real purpose of my post was to find out about any possible problems with ordering from a Canadian store - if anyone has any insight into that, I'd appreciate it.
Thanks and Aloha.
