From Dpreview conclusion:

The Panasonic Lumix-DMC GX8 is a hugely appealing mirrorless camera. Combining enthusiast-friendly ergonomics, an innovative tilting viewfinder and a solid feature set in both stills and video modes, the GX8 is a great all-rounder. Pretty much the only black mark against the GX8 is a persistent problem with shutter-induced softness in some shooting situations – an issue that Panasonic gets credit for trying to address in firmware, but has failed to completely eliminate.

Lumix-DMC GX8 features the company’s first Dual I.S (Image Stabiliser), a 20.3-megapixel Micro Four Thirds sensor, a large tiltable LVF and 4K video recording capability. It integrates a 20.3-megapixel Digital Live MOS Sensor to achieve superior image quality and makes it the first Micro Four Thirds camera to break the 20MP barrier.

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX8 is available from the camera stores in all-black or black-and-silver variants for $1,199.99 body only.
