Re: Gx85 for Travel?

<edit to add: I see where you want the better video stabilization from the GX85. I was using an external mic on the GX8 for better audio with video so that probably explains more why I would be happy with just two GX8's>

I also use an external mic and mostly use a Tascam D60 with Rhode VMP for sound (can use this setup with the Gx85 also). I love the Gx8, but that small size difference means a smaller travel case and the ability to shoot 4K video with the 9-18 stabilized for stills and video. I often do video from a tripod, and when need handheld motion video on the Gx8 use the 12-35 & 1080P 60 fps for handheld stabilized video. Also find that using the 12-35 IS only I get handheld 4k video pans and no walking shots that Mercalli PRO can stabilize perfectly. This kit is really about having a smaller kit so my wife sees that I am trying not to make every trip photocentric (new word:)).
