Here are the things i like about GX85 -
1) One of the main reason i bought this camera is because it has 5 axis stabilization which works on 4k video. 5 axis stabilization was mainly offered by Olympus and recently by Sony. Once you are used to 5 axis stabilization, there is no turning back. It gives you the freedom of taking handheld sharp pictures in low light. Videos are not jittery and shaky.
2) Speaking of videos, 5 axis stabilization works extremely well on 4k and even with Olympus primes. BTW, i mainly used prime lens so i didn't test the Panasonic dual stabilization. It came with a kit lens though i haven't tested the kit lens. Also, unlike Olympus focusing in video tends to go back and forth a lot, Panasonic keeps the focus in lock on the subject during video and when the focus shifts, it is very smooth. Videos are just better on panasonic and 4k video is sharp.
3) Auto Focus for photos is way more accurate than EM5 Mark II. I have 2 daughters who don't like to stand still. Even with my olympus lens, it's ability to nail focus in motion is amazing. It makes using EVF way more fun. Somehow it knows where i want to focus and this rarely happened with EM5 Mark II using EVF unless i am using Single point focus. I used AFF with Face/eye tracking on GX85.
4) EVF is good size and good quality. I think it is very functional EVF, granted there are bigger and better EVF. It is bigger and better than my LX100 and EM5 EVF. EM5 Mark II EVF is slightly bigger.
5) Image quality is pretty awesome! it is similar to EM5 MarkII. I cannot test the RAW since lightroom doesn't support it, but the jpegs are excellent. Looks more saturated than LX100.
6) It is a pretty looking camera.
7) The camera is very responsive and doesn't feel sluggish. I like the menu system of Panasonic and Quick menu is awesome, similar to Olympus Super control panel.
8) USB charging is nice feature. No need to take the battery out.
Here are few things i wish GX85 had -
1) Weather sealing. I have used my Olympus EM5 Mark II with 12-40 lens in the rain and snow. You don't have to worry about the camera.
2) it is a bit heavy for a m43 cameras, i was expecting it to be lighter.
3) i prefer SD card slot on the side than next to the battery. not a big deal.
4) Needs a thumb grip, hopefully Panasonic or some third party will come with an external grip.
Overall, i am very happy with this camera. I am thrilled that Panasonic finally added 5 axis stabilization. I highly recommend this camera.
Panasonic has decided to go a bit of a different route with this lineup though. First was the GX1, a premium version of then-viewfinder-less rangefinder inspired cameras, with extra bells and whistles and a premium construction. They continued it with the GX7, then adding a tilting LCD and tilting electronic viewfinder (EVF). But the most recent GX camera prior to this model was the GX8, both physically bigger and bigger in terms of what it could do, with a bigger price tag to match. Now, perhaps listening to the market or else looking to compete against rival Olympus and other mirrorless camera manufacturers who offer better priced mid-level models, they have released the GX85, a 'lite' version of the GX8 that actually provides all the goodness of the GX8 plus some very real refinements, at a much better price point.
I've had the camera for almost two weeks, and while I've yet to uncover everything that it can do, I can say I'm really pleased with it thus far, and it has genuinely impressed me in several areas. I bought this to replace an Olympus EM10 (original version), and comparisons are perhaps most apt against the new Mk. II model of that camera, but I also own a Panasonic GM5, which is my backup (ultralight) body. Here are some of my discoveries with the GX85 (skip to the end if you don't want to geek out over details. I haven't covered every front, but speak to the things which matter to me for my particular photographic needs):
• Charging and battery - love the USB charging. Makes it much easier on the go. I usually get to and from shooting locations by car, and I keep a fairly substantial USB power bank for keeping devices healthy (smartphones sure lose juice quickly when using maps). Now I can also plug in the camera to bolster the battery after a session. Also, since the battery is the same as the GX7's before it, I was able to find a spare cheaply. Always have a spare, or two!
• Build quality - great for plastic frame, but I kind of miss the magnesium alloy. No doubt the camera still has plenty of metal in the frame however, and has no flex. It makes me appreciate the more how much of a tiny work of art the GM5 is.
• New L Monochrome mode is very nice, super contrast and rich blacks, but saves highlights like all digital sensors do so may require a small whites boost in post processing. Awesome that color filters can still be used. Great way to get great tones in B&W with little processing work.
• Definitely a slight sharpness boost over the GM5 from early testing, but only visible when the sharpest lenses are used. Really requires a great lens to see the difference. No moiré to be seen.
• Shutter shock appears be non-existent with the new shutter, which sounds great and very quiet.
• Colors out of camera in standard JPEG mode are much richer than previous Panasonic cameras. Reds can get a little oversaturated in standard mode. A couple of photos with bright reds seemed to show a little posterization, but only when zoomed in to 100% and in one or two areas. There are of course limits to JPEG files, and generally I think the bright and rich colors are welcome. Red, green, blue and yellow tones are all weighted toward vivid, saturated and pleasing tones. For a more neutral, classically Panasonic color palette the Natural JPEG mode might be a better choice.
• EVF is good but some won't like that is natively a 16:9 ratio. Can be hard to avoid hitting the LCD screen for left-eyed shooters. I am actually left-eyed, but I have been training myself to use the right eye with my Panasonic rangefinder-style cameras and I don't find it too difficult. The trade-off to making yourself use the right eye is not having to mash your whole face behind the camera - rangefinders actually are more comfortable to shoot right-eyed than SLR-style cameras.
• Low light autofocus is terrific.
• Looks are very nice and streamlined, especially in all black. Rear LCD sits so flush it doesn't look like a tilting design. EVF is easy to access. Grip feels good for a camera this size, not perfect but mainly due to overall dimensions of camera.
• True focus stacking is a nice addition. This is different from the 4K Post-Focus feature, which of course results in smaller files, but is so much faster that it's meant to be used in the heat of the moment.
• 4K photo modes are well-implemented and straightforward to use. Actual usefulness for my purposes I will have to determine, as I haven't really tried these out much yet.
• IBIS works to about four stops for me. Using Sigma 60mm lens I was able to get very sharp shots at 1/15 sec at least 75% of the time. IBIS runs all the time that camera is on as evidenced from very quiet hum emitted during operation. Stabilized when focusing. This is just in-body stabilization, since the lens I used isn't dual-IS capable. The effectiveness of image stabilization is of course subjective, since individual people have different levels of shakiness.
Bottom line: this camera is a major step forward for Panasonic. In-body image stabilization that finally matches the great stuff Olympus does. Improved, rejiggered JPEG files that are much more pleasing to the eye, a great "artsy" B&W mode, a new shutter that sounds great and rids the camera of shutter-induced shock, a small resolution boost... all things that the more expensive GX8 doesn't even have, at a much more easygoing price point. I feel like Panasonic has produced a winner in the race to balance all the right features, price, quality and versatility, in a way that further complements the GX line. Highly recommended!
