    Currently looking at DMC-G7 + 20mm 1.7 lens, looks pretty amazing.

    Any other cameras to consider in this price range? It's going to be used for in-house video production on my youtube channels, mostly want 4K to be able to crop, zoom etc (working solo).

    i have the same setup and hope to be using the g7 for small talking head interviews to be included for client mini-docs.

    i have the 25mm/1.7 for a wider interview look and the 42.5/1.8 for a tighter head shot.

    though without a headphone jack, audio might be a concern there are viable work arounds.

    be well.

    the story is never black & white
    it takes Smalltalk to reveal the color

    Yeah, I'll probably just use a wired lavalier mic from my laptop.

    If I look at prices on Ebay for the G7 ($400 - $500) I would consider the alternative the GX80/85 which is in the same price range.
    This camera has better colors, has IBIS, has no time limits and uses a larger part of the sensor.
