Pros: Ergonomics, handling, tropicalization, double stabilization (with original optics), optical range and overall quality

Cons: Battery life, poor sensor hold at high iso

Opinion: I bought it used (body only) about 1 year after buying GH5, to have a second body. For photography, the 2 machines are almost equivalent. I use them with preference when doing photo hunting excursions, in which the low weight and dimensions of the micro4/3 are winning. The quality of PanaLeica optics is excellent (I have 12-60, 100-400 and 45 macro). In addition, with an adapter I can use 2 "historic" Leica R optics that I have had for several years: the Summicron 90/2 and the Apo Telyt 180/3.4 (unsurpassed). Only brake (which also applies to GH5): over 800 ISO the sensor begins to degrade. But you can't have it all.

Pros: Viewfinder

Cons: Insufficient stabilization of ergonomics, battery

Opinion: I bought the car in kit with its 14-42, I have to say all in all discreet. I had bought it enticeded by the magnification of the viewfinder (apart from a couple of mirrorless digitals usually have lock holes instead of crosshairs, and if you do not know what is a viewfinder as you have to approach the eye to that of an Mx or Me super and you will notice) It will be that I am used to the pen f, where everything is put in the right place, but with the gx8 with its questionable ergonomics any maneuver became really annoying, even the shutter button on that handle nor meat or fish ... And to think that it was one of the things that attracted me the most... Stabilization was really the sore point, not even comparable to that of the pen f (and after all it is so since the pen is stabilized on 5 axes) and made any lens a small toilet, in short, either you snapped at least 1/500 or they were disasters, it was saved only by pairing it at 12-60 panaleic and also activating the stabilization of the objective. To make a stop with the pen f I can safely shoot at 1/8" with 75mm and have a perfect image without moving,( verified on optical aim eh)L I used a couple of months to reproduce gods and negatives then I gave it away to the first offer with less than 1000 shots to get out of there. The only thing liked was the large image and the tipper viewfinder.

Pros: Great viewfinder, body that falls well in the hand and weather sealed, very good Touch Monitor

Cons: Maybe only new battery life

Opinion: I had Nikon D7200 great car, but I did not feel mine, at the beginning a few years ago I joined the Olympus OM-D EM-10 and I got attached to the end I only went out with this. This year I gave in the D7200 for the GX8 and I do not regret anything. For my idea of photography is perfect. Solid in hand, of the right size and excellent quality for my way of photographing. I don't have to do posters, but who prints more pictures? :) I do and do not mold poster. And even to the 60x45 I do not regret Nikon. Fabulous viewfinder, one step ahead compared to my Olympus. Good Autofocus. Now in a backpack I carry every day, even at work, 2 machines and six objectives. And without spending a capital can amuse us. I had also thought about the FF and all the expenses in more than goals etc. etc. I tried it but the difference does not justify the price in my opinion. Who is content Gode...si said. I enjoy and the wallet thanks.

Pros: Almost everything

Cons: Battery life

Opinion: I purchased the GX8 shortly after it was being put up for sale. I find it excellent in everything. But I am amazed that Panasonic, given the low battery life, has not produced a battery grip contrary to Olympus. In the long photographic sessions would solve the problem. I bought the "fake battery" but it is necessary to connect it to a power bank and the necessary wire remains in the way.

Pros: Super viewfinder, sealed body, 8 customizable physical keys, ergonomics, perfect and complete touch monitor, 4k video, post focus, photo 4k

Cons: Shutter noise, rolling shutter, unstabilized video

Opinion: I bought it in February 2018, after having had em1, G80 (which is still supported) and gx80. In some ways the best of the 4 tested for several months, definitely for the EVF viewfinder very large, bright and engaging (still one of the best Evf's ever in mid 2018). Difficult to find faults, if not the stabilization that is not at the levels of EM1, G80 and gx80, which does not stabilize in photo mode during framing (the image to viewfinder trembles even pressing halfway the shutter button) and that in the videos does not work. In addition the rolling shutter can create micro-blur (only between 1/125 and 1/320) but you can work around the problem with the electronic shot. Buttons in relief very comfortable, both because most are customizable, and because they recognize easily without detaching the eye from the viewfinder; This allows you to do everything in speed in a moment! Panasonic menu very intuitive and easy to learn; Along with the quality of the sensor more than satisfactory in most common needs, the experience of using this camera is definitely fulfilling and entertaining. Difficult to separate to find better in this genre like rangefinder. The lateral and adjustable viewfinder offers a versatility and ease of composition in the most disparate situations, allowing you to use the focus touch without being annoyed by the touch of the nose that can cause the movement of the point of MAF (as is often the case on G80 that It has the viewfinder in a more central position, DSRL style). I hope in an heir worthy of all that good offers the gx8, perhaps with slightly more contained dimensions
