A couple of GX7 jpegs straight from the camera. Not as good as the Fuji X100 would have done (and even it would have been able to get these scenes in focus) but not too bad. The colour rendition is pretty faithful - not as complementary to scenery or faces as the Fuji, but perhaps more realistic. I'm a bit concerned that I'm going to be as poor at using the GX7 as I have been with the Fuji, although there is a pretty basic PnS mode on the Panasonic so maybe this will save me. The complexity of it is already frustrating me but slowly that will lessen. A bit anyway. Today's frustrations were to do with being unable to find out how to customise the AFAE button (Custom Function Menu, page 1 of 8); and how to shoot a panorama (these don't work as well as the Fuji): not in the menus, this function is reached via the mode selection dial (SCN), not the Aspect Ratio or Photo Style menu options... sigh. Soon I might have to get a Leica because of all the crap it doesn't have.
