I am a Fuji user but I have used M4/3 in the past and I like the system, its wide choice of lenses and I am considering to buy a used GX8 (I know its faults but I love its design)

I guess this should be the right place to get some advice from current users.

My plan is to use it as a travel camera.


i have had a lot of cameras and sold a lot but have kept the gx8, for some reason i can not let it go. i have 2 of these and never experienced the shutter shock. the last update from  Panasonic implemented an automatic e shutter to cover the issue and it works for me. it has IS, weather-sealed, and the same 20 meg CMOS. the CPU has been upgraded in the more recent models.

the g9 is a super camera and i have never tried the gx9 which is the successor to the gx8
