Lars V: I got a GX85 (actually GX80) to complement my GM5. Great camera, but I don't like it. It is heavy, twice the weight of the GM5, so it misses the point the GM5 made.It has some more features and is better in some aspects, but it is just not the camera I grab when I walk out the door. In addition, the GM5 is a great conversation starter.

Sold mine for that exact reason.

Pictures by Todd: I never ever post to dpreview although I've been an avid reader since the very beginning. Anyhow, I just wanted to chime in that I'm super impressed with this GX-85 and now have two that I use professionally along with my Omd-em5 mk2 and my Nikons. Yes the Nikons have some advantages in certain situations, but I'm thinking of selling my D4 bodies as they prett much stay relegated to ballast in my camera bag recently. Here's a link to the first wedding I brought the GX-85 on. I only shot jpegs on the camera since Lightroom couldn't yet convert the Raws, but it did a great job. Will be using them again tonight...

Yes..Todd...if you can share which lenses you used that would be wonderful. The MFT has so many lens options.

John P.: Would this (with the kit lens) be a good option for an upcoming trip to Italy?

Thanks for the comments and lens suggestions. I'm going to read up more on this model and in particular study the higher ISO images. Can anyone who already has this camera comment on image quality at higher ISO's?

justmeMN: Canon cameras are good enough for professional sports photographers to take photos at events like the "Super Bowl, NBA Finals, and a few World Series", but they aren't good enough for DPR Measurebators to take photos of their cats. :-)

Cats deserve Leica equipment. :-)

Brad: Sad to see the demise of one of the world's oldest airlines and so many good employees out of work. I was there one week before Morales took office, unforgettable experience. Did not have my DSLR with me, but do have a several images from an LX1 compact. He is welcome to add these to his collection.

Nice collection of images...very haunting.

When I was a child and film was still the main recording medium, I used a Pentax 645.

Philip Corlis: Take a look at that smug bustard Winston and tell me Adobe is looking out for its customers. WRONG. Winston and his pals are looking out for their stock options. Adobe makes 1B in profits on 4B in sales annually and even thats not enough for Winston and his friends.

Winston thinks you should pay him more money more often so he can offer you swell new things like camera shake reduction. Well Winston, most of us learned how to avoid camera shake long ago. Winston and his pals want you to use their "cloud" so they can hijack your files later and hold them ransom - "Sorry folks looks like we'll have to start charging you for that cloud storage..."

Personally, I hope Winston and his friends choke on this idea. I hope he's back here in six months apologizing to his former customers just like the geniuses at NetFlix had to do.

Me. I'll wait and see who else shows up in the marketplace to fill the vacuum that Winston and his pals at Adobe have created with their greed and hubris.

I totally agree with your post. I, for one, will have NO part of this farce!! Goodbye Adobe!!!

Jim in AZ: Hope it doesn't have the usual crappy anti-glare matte that makes it impossible to distinguish noise from the matte artifacts.

pictureAngst: Umm, the roll of K64 in my Olympus Mju ii has a serial number one higher than his - should I tell him?

I'm happy to send him my roll if he wants to use up the remaining 6 frames, as long as he returns my camera afterwards - it's the limited edition one with the dateback and silver wrist strap so I don't just loan it to anyone.

He'd need to publishes my pictures too - there's a really good one of my Aunt doing the conga, and some arty contre-jour shots of Fudgie and Patch our guinea pigs.

Frames 8-30 he can ignore as I forgot to switch the camera off before I put it in my jacket.

I wouldn't tell might burst his ego. :)
