Certainly less difference in real world use than what the armchair theorists like to endlessly theorize about.

The Q7 produced more contrasty shots straight OOC, which I prefer.

Blunty also got it right witg the Q system.
The handling, the fun factor, the encouragement to shoot less seriously and experiment.

Ordered my Q7 yesterday - it should be here today. But I stuck with a conventional black/silver model rather than the yellow. For some reason, we don't seem to be able to get the full range of colours in the UK yet.

Lumix killed the the Q when it came to video but still, I can't seem to feel the same "joy" when holding a Lumix in my hands as with the Q.

The pics from the Q7 looked consistently better, in my opinion.

Agreed. Will pick up a Q7 eventually. Still loving my original Q!

Completely agree with you. I am considering a GM1 but I am still leaning Q. If the GM1 had a small fast F2.8 telephoto or prime of 150mm it would be more tempting but the handling sure does not look that exciting. And I have to say I do like in-camera raw conversion to experiment with some of the filters and looks to get an idea when I get home on the RAW.

Video will definitively be better on the Lumix by quite a bit. One core issue of video on the Q is the rolling shutter wobble. Panasonic does a much better job at controlling that.

Best line: "It's so much FUN!! I'll just go out into the world and shoot for me which is why I pick the Q7 over the GM1 . . . . ."

Wow! Surprised to see the Q7 holding it's own against the micro 4/3s. Very impressive performance from the Q7.

Yes this is really impressive. Most of the side by side photos were very close. I wonder how the original Q would have fared in such a side by side comparison.
