Introducing the Panasonic GX7 (or as I like to call it, my dream m4/3 cam)

On August 1st Panasonic dropped a bomb on the m4/3 world and announced the Panasonic GX7, the spiritual successor to the Panasonic GX1. In many ways this is the camera that m4/3 shooters have been screaming for since the release of the Olympus Pen E-P1, a rangefinder style camera with ALL the perks. Do I sound like I've already been won over by Panasonic's grand marketing and even bolder claims? You bet your bottom dollar I have. First I will explain my current m4/3 situation and why this new camera is not like the others.
