Lumix DMC-GX7 for Live Music

I've been focused on other cameras lately. So many great cameras out there, so little time to shoot them.
I read an interesting piece on Steve Huff's blog about using the Lumix GX7 for live music.
(Click Here) to read it, and see some nice GX7 images from bars in Amsterdam.
Here are a couple of shots of my friends Jake and the Burtones, shot with my GX7.

iso 6400, f3.5, 1/100 sec.
The GX7 does pretty well in low light, even at iso6400. Not like a full frame Nikon, of course, but respectable. And so much easier to lug around.
