Re: Calling all Panasonic GX80/85 (Or similar) Owners!

I've done my fair share of urban night photography on a G7 which is quite similar to the GX80. All you need is a decent prime. Say f/2 or better, that's acceptably sharp wide open.

Long as you stay below ISO1600 everything's fine. If you have to go to ISO3200 or god forbid 6400 it's rarely pretty.

That's assuming you care to keep the moving parts somewhat sharp, so 1/50 is the slowest shutter you'd be willing to use. Otherwise, with the IBIS on the GX80 if you're shooting still life, you don't really care if it's night or day.
