The Panasonic Lumix G7 was launched way back in May 2015, but it’s still on sale, and at prices that just keep on going down. So we need to keep this in mind when choosing the best lenses for the Lumix G7, because after saving a whole heap of cash on this rather good camera, you don’t want to blow the lot on pricey lenses, right?

The Panasonic Lumix G7 is actually a very interesting camera. It might be old, but it has a lot of features that still look very modern. I probably wouldn't choose it as one of the best Panasonic cameras all round any more, because its tech is quite old and basic compared to what's come along since. Nevertheless, it’s still one of the best cameras for beginners today, mostly because of the price but also because it has some quite powerful features.
