eliaskyo: Ever since owning a Panasonic LX3, I have felt the manufacturer is one of the most underrated in the photography community. It's great to see this camera receiving the attention it is, and I look forward to hearing more about it and other cameras from Panasonic -- they really do make some of the best small cameras out there.

Definitely agree! And for what some might see as a consumer appliance company, they sure seem to know how to make a "photographer's camera" better than some of the old brands.

tkbslc: I can't believe they kept the !@#$ 16:9 EVF on another 4:3 aspect camera.

The problem for me is not the "Rainbow", it is the fact that when I shoot with the full sensor, my decent 1.4x 16:9 EVF gets cropped to a tiny tunnel-like 1.05x 4:3 EVF.

dialstatic: "The Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX85 (known as the GX80 outside of North America)"

This US versus non-US naming of cameras is silly enough in general, but this is downright confusing. Regular consumers may think that the GX85 is a newer camera as it seems to follows the convention of higher model numbers for consecutive generations.

Nothing new for Panasonic, sadly. Most people figure it out anyway, since the cameras aren't generally available in the same area.

They could have even raised the price $50 to pay for it and I would not have complained one bit!

Still, not much else to complain about with this camera.

Angrymagpie: A great offering. But the articulated EVF is such an amazing feature, too bad it's not available in this form factor. Though I suspect if it did, it'd cannibalised on the sale of gx8..

I didn't like the way it added a lot of depth to my GX7. I'm glad to have an option without it. GX8 includes it for those that consider it a must-have.

webrunner5: Wow, looks pretty darn impressive, and the price is not bad either.

Would have been nice at 20mp but can't have everything.

I think they went 16MP so the GX8 owners don't revolt.

In reply to:

Peiasdf: My idea 1" camera would be a G7X with 24-135mm f/1.4-2.8 lens and bigger grip. Touch screen is a must on small camera.

I'd rather something with faster AF and 4K, but I can agree with those lens specs!

In reply to:

BostonC: Nice. I agree with the rating and the Gold award. Having the reach and fast aperture in such a tight package, defies my expectation. Kudos to the Panny engineers.

"fast aperture"?

You must have a different definition that I do for that phrase. The only real drawback is the very slow aperture that seems to have caused high iso and noisy images in the review, even in daylight.

ttran88: Canon's G3X is a better buy.

On the contrary, I can't understand why anyone would buy a G3X.

piratejabez: Anyone else like most of the OOC JPEGs way more than the ACR-processed RAWs?

No. The OOC shots are very flat with off colors

James Benet: Nice Pictures, however there is still no substitute for a larger sensor. The watercolor effect is apparent even at ISO 100.

This is a better video camera than photo and while it does it well, it if far from Micro 4/3, APS C and FF quality. Would love a 1" sensor that gave pixel quality at m43 or APS C levels. As a video camera it seems excellent.

The RX10 II has a much shorter lens, so maybe I'm seeing lens softness?

I would love a good 1" cam that can hang with my m4/3 gear. I'm all about size/performance ratio. Hope it looks better when we see some RAW.

I would have thought so too, but a lot of the shots look grainy and low contrast, even outdoors.

Sadly, I have to agree.

Jonathan F/2: M43 and Fuji are done. Budget Sony FE just drove the nail into the coffin of the small sensor format!

Sorry, let me clarify. I'm still waiting for an AF portrait lens that doesn't cost way too much. $1200 for an 85mm f1.8 is a bit steep.

haylebob: Maybe Off-Topic but, one general question about the section "Gear in this Story" how can two persons say: i own it, i had it about a Cam which
Is not yet on the Maket and come out later this May 2016? I see
this often when DPreview introducing new Cams before Market Release.
Btw: i like the RX 10 III "i want it" ;-)

Thank you haylebob

Some people think they are being funny.

evilmagicnut: 1. Will the AF hunt?
2. Do I get a joystick or touch screen?
3. Can the flash function as a wireless controller?

D750 needs about $2000 and 6lbs worth of lenses to cover 24-600mm, though...

And If you don't need that reach, you wouldn't be shopping for a RX10 III and making that kind of absurd comparison. You could be comparing a $600 DL-24-85 or Canon G7 X instead.

2eyesee: Just waiting for the RX100 V now - with a 24-200mm lens that will fit in my pocket :)

Panasonic TZ100 is here already.
