Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX8.
The GX8 was the first M43 body I’d added to my collection since the GX1, nearly four years earlier.
I’m not much of an early adopter, so it took me a while to decide on this particular body. But I’m glad I did. I’m a fan of having the viewfinder on the left side of the camera, and the flip-up feature is just perfect for my style of photography. I added the larger eye-cup.
I’m not big on touch-screens, so I don’t usually have the swivel LED display showing, and I carry the camera in my bag that way just for protection.
All the dials and knobs are well placed and easy to use, and the grip is quite comfortable in my right hand. The size is perfect.
The Olympus 12-40 ƒ/2.8 PRO lens is what’s usually attached. Great chunk of glass.
The auto focus is super-fast.
I’ll be using this set-up for a pretty long while.
