For today's interchangeable lens camera enthusiasts - or anyone looking for a lighter, newer more intelligent alternative to bulky DSLRs - Panasonic LUMIX Mirrorless Micro Four Thirds system cameras deliver impressive, no-compromise performance. Nearly half the size of most DSLRs, the DMC-GX85 delivers impressive large sensor performance in the most compact camera system ever designed by Panasonic LUMIX. Thanks to the elimination of the low pass filter, its fine detail resolving power is boosted nearly 10% over previous 16-Megapixel sensors. Image stabilization is top of its class with the complementary LUMIX 2-axis lens O.I.S. and a new 5-axis in-body I.S., available in either photo or video recording modes. Camera purists will enjoy the familiar quick-access thumbwheel controls and integrated 2764k-dot eye-level electronic viewfinder, plus a tilting LCD display for greater flexibility in difficult shooting angles. Modern enthusiasts will love the Wi-Fi mobile control and next-generation flexibility that 4K Video, 4K PHOTO and 4K Post Focus modes bring to the creative experience.

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.
After two events covered (full day weddings), I have to say that there is a lot to like about the GX85 and a few very annoying things to dislike as others have said. Panasonic tends to create many different variations of a camera these days with several big flaws in each so you have to buy them all it seems...
- The TINY electronic viewfinder is going to be the worse part of this camera. You can barely squeeze your eye into it and accurately use it when you shoot. I don't have big eyes either... After about 5-10mins of usage, my eyes hurt a lot because of the squinting I have to make when shooting with that EVF... And I've never had any issues with other Lumix cameras which I've used for hours non-stop, except the LX100 which I've borrowed in the past and is similarly flawed. I wished they had kept the GX7 type of eyepiece for the viewfinder for this supposedly GX7 mark II update that is the GX85. The resolution isn't bad, and I am not too worried about the ghosting / refresh rate if I can barely get my eyes to see through that EVF viewfinder which also lacks tilting compared to the GX7.
- The battery life is not very good either... With the panasonic OEM battery, you can maybe squeeze 1h15min to 1h30 of recording because you have to rely heavily on the LCD display instead of the EVF... With non-Panasonic batteries, you get about the same depending on which one you buy, but you lose the knowledge of knowing exactly when the battery dies as these cheap batteries will display 2-bars and go suddenly to die after about 1h or 1h30 of usage.
- LCD display lacks degree of movement... It can only tilt a little bit down or a little up to about 30 degrees... So it's useless for selfies or filming with LCD display flipped open like on a GX8, G7 or GH3/4
- Lack of Microphone jack... The audio isn't bad but not nearly as good as a standalone shotgun mic... Plus you get the extra vibration sound from IBIS which can be annoying
- SD card slot under the camera next to battery slot... Makes it hard to change cards when mounted on a tripod...
- Lack of quick manual AF-S/AF-C/MF switching mechanism like on GX7 or GX8... You can program one of the FN button but it still prevents you from switching from AF to MF when you are recording... which is so crippling as often times you just want to switch on the fly between the AF-C and MF without having to stop recording video.
- 5-axis Stabilizer IBIS... Used in conjunction with the Panasonic lenses which have IS on lens... this makes it a very good camera for shooting video & stills without too much blur or shake... The videos are not smooth like when you use a gimball... but it definitely helps big time. I'd say it's on par with the Olympus IBIS such as that on EM5-Mark II... There are definitely some artifacts though still like jerk in motion... The supplied tiny 12-32mm lens (equivalent of 24 - 64mm Full frame) seems to do a very good job though working with the GX85 on camera IBIS to remove as much shake as possible. It's not perfect though and you will always get better movement shots with a gimbal or stabilizer. But on the go, it does a very good job filming with little shake when you don't have a tripod with you. It's not perfect though and does create some minimal vibration sound/feel to the body.
- 4K and different 1080p video flavors. That's Panasonic's strength... Though it lacks in terms of higher bit rate that you can find on GH4 or GH3. Still the videos are good on this tiny camera
- Lightweight / Can be carried in many places without being obtrusive. It's not tiny but small enough to fit in a jacket pocket. The benefits of Micro 4/3...
- Low light seems to be better than the GH4 or G7. The improved engine seems to give pretty good results even at ISO 3200 for video & photos. I'm glad it improved... Now let's hope we can actually shoot photos at ISO 6400... It's still not there for ISO higher than 3200... An improvement nevertheless compared to past recent LUMIX iterations.
Overall... This is a very good addition to the LUMIX lineup mostly because of the 5-axis In-Body Image Stabilizer Panasonic has finally been able to implement... You only wish Panasonic would actually create a camera that has all of its best features instead of always crippling each new addition with flaws that didn't have to be there... But it's their game these days... Let's hope the GH5 includes the IBIS on the GX85 which is a given, with improved clean & usable ISO6400 video & photo in low light, and I can happily get rid of all my Canon gear for both Photo & Video...
