Naveed Akhtar: Silver again .. really
Even the shutter shock is gone ..
and now the small size is cons? in GX8 the big size was?
dpppppp??

It is a commercial decision
They cannot give gold award to midend camera
Or how does panny going sell the flagship camera (GX8)?

Caerolle: "But the difference is negligible, meaning shutter shock is effectively a non-issue on the GX85. This is a serious improvement over the GX8 and G7."

Yes, and you only have to lose a stop of shutter speed and sync speed to do it. Amazing.

Perhaps you should focus on your photo composition rather than concerning if you can shoot using 1/8000 mechanical shutter

You don't often need 1/8000, and there is eshutter as work around
But shutter shock affects all the pictures you take

joe6pack: I don't understand how camera companies can claim removing AA filter as a feature. What is their solution of dealing with aliasing then? It seems all the manufacturer cares is benchmark.

why don't you just search for "moire correction" in google?

what you said applies to noise:
"When signal is lost, they are lost, and there is no way to "enhance" them. Regardless of how much CPU/GPU power you have"
obviously, noise reduction is useful since human is not a computrer

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 hate the GX7 EVF
It makes the camera much more bulky

Raist3d: So some questions- did they allow exposure compensation in manual mode with auto ISO?

And is this the same old m4/3rds sensor or a new 16MP sensor?

EC in manual mode with auto ISO is VERY USEFUL

Because CPU is now powerful enough to do moire correction in-camera?

Shake Reduction: Hey, another slow m4/3 zoom!

The lens is indeed a "24-120 F7-F11".....
but who cares......since FF version of "24-120 F7-F11" does not exist

I care about the pocket-ability of m43 system, which I can use to take nice photos 90% of the time

there are moments where a FF lens wins

That's why there are many DSLR users who owns 1" sensor camera / m43

goshigoo: Because many people think f/4 is f/4 regardless of format
They do not understand m43 only cover 1/4 of 135FF

Panasonic sells fewer lenses then canikon
The R&D cost accounts for the expensive price of m43's lenses

It is more worth to buy canikon super tele lenses then m43's
And it won't be portable anyway and you will have to take a tripod/monopod when using super tele lenses, which adds another weight

M43 is makes more sense in wide / normal zoom range

My iPhone has f/2.2 aperture

goshigoo: It is bigger and heavier than Sony A7 ?!

I always think m43 is about portability.........

At this price, wouldn't it better to consider A7 / A7II, which are selling at ~950 USD and 1400 USD only in Hong Kong...

IQ - FF
Portability - m43

So the problem is why GX8 is SO BIG, HEAVY and EXPENSIVE?

f/2.8 is sensor size independent
because it is the amount of light per unit area

FF @ f/2.8 does capture more light than m43 @ f/2.8

if you count the total amount of light captured

@Trk
I totally agree on your view, Panasonic m43 camera are usually over priced and does not deliver quality
I have gf2, gx1, gx7 as well as canon 5D3
So I know the strength of each system

GX7 is just very portable and convenient, IQ is good enough
I love it's portability and user interface, touch focus is awesome

For IQ/DOF control, it is a no brainier to go for 5D3
And it is indeed cheaper then GX7+highend lens, if paired with cheap lens like 50 f/1.8, 35 f/2, etc

@ IarekB
Check this out
https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=f5zN6NVx-hY

Regarding the RX 100 M3/4
I was referring to mark 3 or mark 4
I know RX100 has 1" sensor, of course
blue_tooth2k was only comparing the equivalent focal length and the real f number of the lens
That's why I pointed out RX100 have even better spec if he does not care about sensor size

@blue_tooth2k
If you don't take format into consideration, why don't you just use Sony RX100 M3/4?

It is equipped with a 24-70 f/1.8-f/2.8 in a super portable body that weights < 300g!!

It is even cheaper than the Panny 12-35 alone

@ IarekB
You need to pump up the ISO on the FF by 2 stops to match the exposure of the m43, i.e.
30mm, f/2.8, 1/100, ISO 100 @ m43 == 60mm, f/5.6, 1/100, ISO 400 @ FF

the amount of light that fall on both sensors are indeed the same in this scenario, IF we are in a perfect world (e.g. 100% QE)

Vobluda: I have give a try to Olympus 45/1.8 two times but evenutally sold it as I was not satisfied with its optical performance.
It is plain glass with no asph or ed and it is visible on the pictures (and that is the reason why it is so cheap). For now I have Panasonic 45/2.8 that is slightly more expensive than Olympus 45/1.8 but optically superior.
From what I can see googling new Panasonic 42.5/1.7 will have asph element (s) and that is the reason why I think that it will be much better then Olympus 45/1.8 though a bit more expensive.

You sure you have read and understand this?
http://www.dpreview.com/articles/2666934640/what-is-equivalence-and-why-should-i-care/2

I am sure you do not fully understand the meaning of equivalence when you said
"it's still 1.2 while they are 1.8 and not 0.9"

f/1.8 is f/1.8 but it is really pointless without taking the format into consideration

my iphone's camera has aperture f/2.2; so do you think it is better than 28 f/2.8?

Sigma82; you still do not understand "equivalence dof"
the canon f/1.8 @ 135 FF is equivalent of f/0.9 in m43

have you checked?

You can understand it better if you know how telescope for astro works; focus length and aperture does not really matter
the key is the diameter of the main lens

It is easy to compare dof control; it is not easy to compare dof quality
