I agree with the comment above, I have to tell both the D7000 and the GH3 and their quality is very fair, and in some cases much higher GH3, mainly thanks to the Leica optics.

I think they should check their reviews.

This review is a joke - a bad joke. The D7000 is a good camera, but the dynamic range is not even close to the GH3. The GH3 is the best camera in the world right now, and everyone knows it. This site must be owned by Canon and Nikon, as they are the only cameras that get decent reviews. According to this comparrison, the GH3 is half the camera of the D7000. Seriously, get real.
