The headline features may be the 20 Megapixel resolution, built-in stabilisation and 4k video, but for me the improvements in composition, control and handling are the real highlights.
Large, detailed viewfinder and fully-articulated touchscreen., Weather-proof body with decent grip and good controls., Fast Single AF that works well in low light conditions., 4k video with chance to extract 8MP stills at 30fps., Wifi, timelapse, 7-frame AEB, silent shooting up to 1/16000.
Built-in IS less effective than Olympus system., Continuous AF performance beaten by some rivals., No USB-charging of battery in-camera.
Images can be shared directly from the GX8 using the built-in Wi-Fi, which can show a QR code for making the first-time connection so that you don't have to enter a password. There's also NFC (near field communication) technology for making fast connections to NFC-enabled devices.
New 20MP sensor, Magnesium alloy, dust- and splash-proof build, Excellent viewfinder
No drive mode dial, Larger than the GX7, Four Thirds type sensor is smaller than APS-C format competition
Back in July of 2015, Panasonic announced their 2015 flagship DLSM (Digital Single Lens Mirrorless) model: the LUMIX DMC-GX8. Picking where the last gen GX7 left off two summers ago, the GX8 promises more megapixels, enhanced image stabilization, a faster image processor, improved noise reduction,...
Great image quality in both iAuto and Program shooting modes, Excellent overall performance from the AF and Burst shooting modes, Dedicated Video Capture Button is always ready to record, Weather-sealed body protects from splashes and dust, Two command dials allow easy changing of settings, Built-in...
No built-in flash to add additional light, Priced higher than some of its competition, Exposure compensation dial can easily be turned when changing the shooting mode
The 20.3-megapixel Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX8 is the follow-up to the GX7, which was the top model of the viewfinder style G series mirrorless cameras. Like the GX7, the Panasonic GX8 looks like a classic rangefinder camera, but has a tiltable electronic viewfinder that uses a high resolution OLED...
Panasonic truly impressed us when they introduced their GX7 and the new GX8 takes it even further with a weatherproof body and improved stabilization that combines both sensor-shift and optical stabilization to maximize efficiency.
Low image noise until ISO 1600, Nice image colors after tweaking, Impressive metering, Instant shutter-lag with short blackout, Ultra-fast autofocus, Extremely sensitive AF, Fast shot-to-shot speed, Superb EVF, Calibratable LCD, Highly customizable, Mostly sturdy build
Some image softness at all ISO, Frequent color-cast in low light, Limited dynamic-range, Exposure-Priority only in Manual mode, Wrong Live-Histogram, Front function button difficult to use, Flex in LCD hinge, Low battery-life
Following up on the highly successful GX7, the new Panasonic GX8 offers a similar, retro-ish rangefinder design, but with a number of big technological improvements. Sporting a new 20-megapixel sensor, the GX8 is the highest resolution Micro Four Thirds camera currently on the market.
Thanks to Panasonic, we have added the pricing information of the Panasonic Lumix GX8, and supporting lens.

It’s the first Panasonic CSC to feature a 20 million pixel sensor – find out how it delivers in our full Panasonic GX8 review. Trying to distinguish between the different lines which Panasonic offers can be a little tricky, with five different ranges to choose from.
I've had the camera for less than a week and I'm very pleased with it's performance. Pro's 1. Makes great 11x17 prints. 2. Light weight and very portable compared to my D600. 3. Great low light shooter. 4. Camera controls are easy to use. 5. View finder and flip out screen are bright and sharp. 6.
I was one of the first to receive the GX8 in August of 2015. I shoot many outdoor scenes often in harsh environments but also am a coffee shop photographer (over 700 shops worldwide photographed).
