You are probably right. Who knows what the internal needs of the marketing department is.

But, the GX7 did not seem to undercut the GH3 and GH4. The GH4, with the interface unit, has far more...

I tried to find one for my LX100. XUME doesn't seem to make a 43mm version. Are you using adapter rings for the LX100?

Can a heavy camera hurt you? (humor)

This is about a video capable camera and it is video. Actually three of them. Good footage and good story telling too!
