Paulfish, you can still find them on Ebay, sometimes even new for around 500. Very under-rated camera. I still miss mine sometimes.

I'd heard that Panasonic may have discontinued the GX line and stuck to GH and G.

I have seen it on the used site at b&h from time to time.

Most likely there is a gx8 on the way. Chk out the gm5 or lx100 as an alternate if the gx8 is not to your liking or can't find a used gx7..

There was a rumor about gx8 on the m43 rumor site, but your guess as good as mine.. I heard about a possible discontinue as well about the beginning of the year. Anyway who really knows, it's just rumors.

Silver and black GX7 still listed as in stock at B&H (with 14-42 kit zoom).

B&H and Adorama had another price drop on the kit combo. As of Monday, Adorama had the GX7+14-42mm Ver 2+$50 gift card for $548 with free super saver shipping. They are moving these out for the GX8. The rumor sites say the GX8 won't be here until September but I would not be surprised if it is earlier since they are running closeout specials on the GX7. No doubt the GX8 will be nice but I bet the price will jump back up to the $1k range like when the GX7 was introduced.

Tracey Curtis-Taylors's 1942 Boeing Stearman was fully restored by 3G Classic Aviation in Hungary during 2012/13. It has a Lycoming 680 radial engine with 300hp, is fitted with extra fuel tanks in the top wing for increased range, has a top altitude of 10,000ft and a cruise speed of 90mph. She completed a flight from Cape Town, South Africa to Goodwood, UK in 2013. She just completed from the UK to Sydney, Australia early this year. The aircraft was shipped to Seattle and reassembled and tested at the Historic Flight Foundation and will leave in about a month to fly across the US.













GX7, 12~35/2.8

Have you never been annoyed at how live view stops updating and the live histogram stops working once the shutter speed hits 1/1000 second in manual mode?

I like the GX7 too, but those silly limitations really turned me off on it, and quickly, as I often shoot at f2.8-4 outdoors and like relying on watching the histogram and/or live view to see how my shutter speed and/or aperture changes are affecting the exposure before I press the shutter release and with the GX7, once that 1/1000 second ceiling is hit, you're done, left in the dark, literally, as the screen stops updating and you don't see what the resulting exposure looks like until you review the image if you happen to have selected any other shutter speed between 1/1000 and the 1/8000 second top speed. Obviously, with many of the files in this thread, 1/1000 second was well short of what was being used. The images are beautiful.

If one were using any other exposure mode, be it program, aperture priority or shutter speed priority, the limitation disappears. It's only in manual mode that Panasonic limits the live view and live histogram of the GX7 to the 1/1000 second maximum shutter speed.

For a camera to be as loaded with features and then place such a limitation on the manual exposure mode is just plain silly.

I have never encountered that problem with either of my two GX7 bodies. I use 1/1000 and up quite often in manual mode. The live view and histogram function have never stopped working.
