Panasonic LUMIX GX8 review by Panasonic Australia
From CameraLabs final GX8 review :
The market for higher-end cameras is growing, so it’s nice to see Panasonic respond with a high-spec Lumix camera that offers many worthy upgrades over the earlier GX7. I particularly liked the large and detailed OLED viewfinder and fully-articulated OLED touch-screen on the GX8, along with its weather-proofed body. The presence of 4k video and 4k photo capture may now be normal for Panasonic, but remains a valuable and unique capability.
The two models I think you should be weighing-up against the GX8 are the Olympus OMD EM5 II and Fujifilm XT1. All three are great cameras but one doesn’t stand out beyond the others overall. As detailed above, there are certain aspects where each takes a lead and the trick of course is to match that with your picture (or video) taking requirements. In the meantime, the GX8 is an easy camera to recommend, especially if you take video as seriously as stills.
