GX80 but with Phase detect af?

Hopefully I can get someone’s advice here.

My current gear is as follows:


Panasonic 20mm 1.7

Olympus 45mm 1.8

Panasonic 14-42 first gen kit lens

I really enjoy my current setup. I like using prime lens for low light - being able to get a high FPS without needing a flash. I also like them for shallow dof sometimes.

However sometimes I just don’t get focus quick enough with moving subjects (young children) - because of the contrast detection system and end up losing out on a moment that I’d love to capture.

what I’d love to know is, what is the cheapest way to move to a phase detect camera with two equivalent prime lenses to what I already have.

I say cheap as the kits above cost approx £750 (not including the old kit lens). I’m looking for similar budget.

I shoot a mix of photo and video.

Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX8 Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX85 Panasonic Lumix G 14mm F2.5 II ASPH
