People have been complaining since its release that the GX8 was too big and expensive. Then the dreaded shuttershock came to make things worse.

Suppose the GX8 had been a market failure for the reasons above?

Asking your rationale side, what would you do (in a risky declining photography market)?

  1. Release a big and expensive GX9 again?
  2. Stop the GX line?
  3. Release a smaller and better priced (ie. with some cheaper components) GX9, to see how the market react?

Well, lets turn position little bit:

If Panasonic would release GX8 mk2 in slightly smaller body with most specs from G9, with obviously solved SS and with tiny upgrade to EVF. How much would you be willing to pay for it? That was my hope for next camera, but we got GX80 mk2.
