Panasonic is on the verge to introduce an entry-level Micro Four Thirds camera which will be called as Lumix GX85.
The rumored Panasonic GX85 mirrorless camera will be a stripped-down version of the Lumix GX8 and it will definitely support 4K video recording.
The rumor mill were in talks of a new Panasonic entry-level mirrorless camera for a few weeks. It was said to replace the Lumix GM5 and some sources said that it will be named as the GM7. Well, it seems like it is not the Lumix GM7, instead, Panasonic will launch a smaller version of the Lumix GX8.

Panasonic has announced the Lumix GX8 mirrorless camera back in July 2016. The MFT shooter features a 20.3-megapixel image sensor, 4K video recording, maximum ISO of 25600, and integrated optical image stabilization technology.
The upcoming Panasonic GX85 will retain many of the features found in the GX8. When it comes to the price the GX85 model should be much cheaper than the GX8 which is currently selling for $1,199.99 at Amazon | B&H | Adorama stores.
Along with the Lumix GX85 camera next week, Panasonic will most likely introduce the rumored Leica 12mm wide-angle lens for Micro Four Thirds cameras. There is also the Lumix LX200 premium compact model but there is not yet information about the official announcement.
