The DMC will not have to change lenses(dmc=p&s right?).I'm not an SLR guy but I say go for the G6 because it'll handle nicely(better than the oversized lens-body combo of the NEX IMO).Also,the very act of using the viewfinder will enable you to get steadier shots.Have you checked their respective reviews on dpreview?I just said what I think but you should make the final decesicion.

I've been checking reviews everywhere on all the cameras, the G6 and GX7 are more or less the same with the GX7 being slightly better in some areas but the G6 only has image stabilization in the lens where as the GX7 has in body

I just thought I'd ask you guys what you thought would be a better option seeing you all seem to know a hell of a lot about cameras and stuff redface.gif

Got back from Taiwan yesterday. If anybody is ever looking for cheap, cheap camera gear, check out Camera Street in Taipei (don't know the street name in Chinese, but I remember it was fairly close to Taipei 101, but I might be wrong about that). In true Taiwanese fashion, there's a zillion shops all selling the same stuff and if you speak Chinese you can barter for some pretty significant deals. My sister had picked up a Canon G15 with case and extra memory cards for like $150 under the cost of what it would have been here in the US.

Anyway, started processing my photos in RawTherapee, and the process went as follows:

1. Import my RAW files
2. Queue up the first few files that look fine as is
3. Realize that opening the editor at all produces severely undersaturated and crappy looking photos
4. Tweak settings, photos still look like crap
5. Give up and finally buy Lightroom...

$10 a month, or however much for stand alone LR is totally worth it.

Lightroom is great.

Man, photoshoot at the beach this morning...I love my 6D a and 70-200 f/2.8 combo.

And VSCO for LR or PS is pretty awesome.

$80 for the Student and Teacher edition wink.gif
post #25429 of 29551
yeah, its worth it. the $10 a month for Photoshop and LR has made me come out of pirating it.

Good thing with software, its becomeing so cheap and easy to get, its not really worth pirating stuff anymore.

Sorry,need to keep track of the news.I thought the GX7 was a compact point and shoot!Ok,image stabilization(IS) in the body will be better since if you buy a non IS lens in the future,you can still get good image quality at lower shutterspeeds.I'd go with the GX7.Heres my opinion:

1.If you want to use a heavier body for stability and you don't mind the bigger body without IS,go for the G6
2.If you want smaller body(easier concelable) with good in body IS,go for the GX
