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.

With caveats, yes:

  • Learn to use the e-shutter by default, because of the potential for shutter shock.
  • No PDAF, so not great for video or for action shots (e.g. following players in sports).
  • "Unique" physical UX compared with most cameras ... I happen to like it, but it's not for everyone.

Personally, what I really want is a G9 in a GM5 body! (Which should be doable now.)
