Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX7
Panasonic's new premium "flat"-style Micro Four Thirds mirrorless camera so outdoes its fine GX1 predecessor that the company skipped a bunch of numbers in naming it.

Essentially a K-30 with a less-sculpted body and a wide variety of color combinations, the new Pentax K-50 offers a lot at an entry-level price.
Provide four AA batteries and the AA Battery Holder D-BH109 instead of the K-50's lithium-ion one, and you have the K-500.
