Panasonic G85 from an Olympus user

I've been using Olympus cameras since 2001, picking up a D-510Z after coming back from Disney World with cash left over that was burning a hole in my pocket.  I have had many fine Olympus bodies over the years (C-2100UZ, E-1, E-510, E-3, E-P2, E-5, E-PM2, Stylus-1, E-M5, E-M1 mark 1) and still own/shoot many of them.  I just recently bought my first Panasonic body (G85), and I thought I would mention some things as I explore the new way of shooting.

If others also want to post about getting a Panasonic after using Olympus, or vice versa, feel free to do.  It will be interesting to see the differences and perhaps the things in common.

To start out, with my reasons for picking the G85 this time, was I have a trip to Hawaii planned for February.  I find strong sunlight is one of my migraine triggers, and I need to wear wrap around sunglasses all of the time when I'm outdoors in the sun to reduce the frequency of the migraine attacks.

I'll post each of the observations as a separate post in the thread.
