There is debate on the size of it... to some it's terribly huge, to others it's pretty compact for its reach.

I would not pair it with GX85, but with G85 it may be OK if size is not the main priority.

I found the size just fine on the G85, but there was a hitch: the girth of the 45-200 is quite substantial near the mount end, and the G85's tripod socket is oddly positioned, near the front of the camera rather than centered.

Put those two things together, and you may not be able to use this combo on a tripod if you are using a quick-release mounting plate that protrudes in front of the body, which some do because of the socket placement.
