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.

Back in July of 2015, Panasonic announced their 2015 flagship DLSM (Digital Single Lens Mirrorless) model: the LUMIX DMC-GX8.

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

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.

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).
