By beating the current leader with by two points the GX8 is now the best ranked MFT camera sensor at DxOmark (Click here to see full review). DxO writes:
An increase in resolution to 20Mp together with 4K video capture on the Panasonic’s GX8 latest Four-Thirds chip are certainly welcome improvements for today’s competitive hybrid market. Despite the extra pixels, however, sensor scores for Panasonic’s latest Four-Thirds chip remain a little behind the APS-C hybrid competition from Sony and Samsung, and don’t offer a significant improvement over previous sensors such as that in the 16Mp GH4. With a $1198 price tag, the GX8 isn’t cheap either, but with plenty of features on offer, including the built-in EVF and flash, free-angle LCD, and Dual I.S., you get a lot of camera for your money, making it a good all-in-one solution for the hybrid enthusiast.
There is also a new GX8 review at Mirrorlessons:
In the case of the GX8, it is less the kind of camera I’d just pop into my bag or swing around my neck and much more a professional tool I’d trust for serious photography assignments. In fact, were I a working photographer with a wide array of Micro Four Thirds lenses, I could imagine having the GX8 as my main professional body and the GX7 as my back-up/travel camera.
Neocamera published the GX8 review and writes:
Image quality from the GX8 is solid, with low image-noise, good retention of details and very reliable metering. Colors, white-balance and dynamic-range are all good too, only falling slightly short of its strongest competitors. The GX8 makes it up for with its very fast and ultra-sensitive Contrast-Detect AF system which operates down to -4 EV.
