Introducing the GX85 / GX80

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX85 (known as the GX80 outside of North America) is Panasonic's latest mid-range Micro Four Thirds model. It sits in the company's 'GX' series which is used to denote that it's targeted towards dedicated enthusiast photographers but priced as a mid-range model.

It's a 16MP model that's capable of 4K video shooting but features a viewfinder and several features carried-over from the older GX7, including a built-in, bounceable pop-up flash.

As such, it'll sit below the GX8 in the company's lineup but the more budget-conscious user may well find that the GX85 offers a lot of its big brother's capabilities. And, thanks to a redesigned shutter mechanism intended to minimize shutter shock, may even offer some practical advantages.
