New GX80 reviews


Mirrorlessons writes:

To be honest, I had a hard time finding real flaws with this camera, and there certainly wasn’t anything that would prompt me to not recommend it. In fact, my only real disappointment is that a few features I liked on the GX7 have been removed.
Right now, especially for someone who wants to buy their first mirrorless camera without spending too much, I can’t think of any better deal especially considering the compact size and great selection of lenses within the micro four thirds system.

Harrison Cline writes:

At $799, I feel that this camera is a tough contender in the mirrorless world and can still compete with DSLRs within the price range or even the next tier up.

Stephen:Looks as though most of the P35-100/2.8 jitter in video is fixed with the GX80 dual-IS. This video is comparing the P35-100/2.8 and P12-35/2.8 lenses with various camera stabilisations on the Panasonic  G7, GX80, LX100 and Olympus OMD E-M5II.  All was handheld, and I was using both hands with elbows braced against my body and eye to the EVF. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YAshlUXNxJk
