On how much you have to pay for it. I bought a used GX8 3 years ago from KEH around $600. I still use and like the camera. Very accessible controls, decent menu system and handles well…at least for me. No problem with shutter shock when using electronic shutter .  The ibis may not be as good as on Olympus cameras, but I tend not rely on ibis, and I don’t use the camera with long focal lengths.  I also am fairly careful with cameras and don’t challenge claims of weather sealing. 
There are any number of cameras with better specs and newer features. But for a good price the GX8 is nice camera, robust build etc. and if you don’t like it, you can always sell it and not lose much money. Think of it as a rental.
