brief summary

pros:
stills Oriented
weather sealed, including the articulated display and tilting EVF
very fast AF
new 20MP sensor
32 shot raw buffer @ ~ 8fps (estimated)
75+ jpg buffer
4k (crop mode)
built-in stabilizer works WITH lens stablizer too.
outperforms Olympus OM-D E-M1 making it the new best of MFT
customizable function buttons

cons:
stills oriented
larger than GX7
2.5mm mic jack
smallish battery limits shooting

not many details on the 100-400mm f/4-6.3 lens
also a new 25mm f/1.7 lens

And a "capture and refocus" technology that's not like lightfield but based on a buffered burst of stills

neuroanatomist:
If the 100-400 lens is for m4/3, is it actually 50-200mm?  Panasonic has pulled that nonsense before...
