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.
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
Pros:Solid, tropicalized, stabilized sensor, wide choice of features, 4k photo and video quality, handy, versatile, broad range lenses System Micro 4/3 Panasonic and Olympus
Cons:Weight and size, for those looking for something more compact.
Opinion:I bought this car profiting from a great offer. I appreciate the solid consistency and the high construction standards. Big enough to be maneuverable between my hands (large) and small enough not to weigh. The menu is very intuitive and logical and coming from Canon I have not found more drawbacks. I appreciate the amount of programmable functions and easy access via 8 function keys scattered everywhere. Incredible to speed up work and shoot with action readiness. Exposure compensation selector Easy to reach, quick Area selector/MAF point size, dedicated video button can be deactivated, classic display programs plus three personal configurations, Oled and touch screen completely Tilting and orientable which can be closed and protected, connection for external microphone, solid body and resistant to splashes and dust, fast MAF with various configurations, sensor stabilizer on 4 axles in symbiosis with Panasonic OIS lenses, Possibility to process RAW images directly in the car. The M4/3 20MB sensor does a great job and the photo/video quality is very high, usable artistic filters (personally I use them very little except the B/w), 4k video, 4k photo sequence and really brilliant Post Focus function. Combined with the Leica Summilux 15/1.7, the images produced are excellent, with intense colours, detail and depth. The articulated EVF viewfinder is very convenient and detailed, also Oled quality, which allows you to manage image and functions without distractions. Perfect WiFi connection, with predisposed telephones you can connect directly to your mobile phone via NFC. In short, I am very satisfied, I think is an ideal machine for travel, reportage and street, still offered at an excellent price. Purchased in the black version passes easily unnoticed and allows discretion when necessary. I was undecided between the GX8 and the new GX9. This last seems to ape the fashion of the most compact machines, with small size and built-in flash (which I just do not appreciate), but I think it loses too much and gains very little compared to GX8. In this regard I leave this interesting comparison between the two models, remembering that unlike the GX9, the GX8 still maintains high its value, both new and used, index of a quality still very demanded among photographers who seek substance, quality of Results and robustness of use.

Pros:Articulated viewfinder, sensor, tropicalization, video
Cons:stabilization, high ISO noise, menu to be studied
Opinion:I own this car since April 2016. The stabilization of the machine has 4 axes, becomes 5 with dedicated optics (the Panasonic Pro). Video view is a Panasonic, is the quality you see. 4K to 100 mbps, less than the GH4 so. On the side of the photo certainly better GH4 but perhaps slightly less than the OMD EM 1 I've got to try, but I do not own. The viewfinder articulated is very convenient, but it is a matter of taste. For the price I think there is better in giro.rn
