I am in the same situation. Having seen suggestions of the likely release of GWT 2.8 for the start of this year, I'm eager to switch to the use of Java 8 syntax. One of GWT's selling points has been the use of the same language across client and server. Right now we are stuck with Java 7 on the client and soon there will be previews of Java 9 on the server. If It was announced that GWT was to remain at Java 7 I would have no problem. What is difficult is having Java 8 features regularly promised but with no delivery. I'm working on critical commercial software, so snapshots aren't enough.
I love using GWT - please don't let this change!
