I just love this camera. I brought this camera to replace a GH1 which was getting a little old. I really liked the design of the GX8 as people in the street think its a film camera and pay it little attention. When I give it someone to use they usually ask if it winds on the film automatically. The results with the 12-35mm f2.8 lens are just superb. Dust proof and light rain proof means you can use it all the time, ideal for travel and street photography. I used the GX8 on a trip to Cambodia and Vietnam last September and had no problems, it just kept on giving perfectly exposed and focused images.

I have waited some time before posting a review. In the past I haven't always got on with small Panasonic cameras. With my normal man hands I hit function buttons every time I picked a camera up.
This camera is different. It looks great, it feels great, the controls are great.
I really like the 4K video and the still shots I have achieved are so much better than continuous at say 10 fps.
I use Leica 15 mm prime, Olympus 12-40 mm Pro and Olympus 40 - 150 mm Pro and the camera and lenses produce stunning shots.
I still use my other cameras, Canon DSLRs and Panasonic bridge camera, each has a special feel and meaning. This camera has to be up there with the camera greats.

Superb Camera!-Having owned a number of Panasonic Cameras (GX-1, GH-3, GM-1, GX-7) I have been very pleased with the quality of all. To be honest I wasn't going to upgrade my GX-7 cameras when the GX-8 came out but after seeing one in a store my opinions changed.

The GX-7 is a superb camera but the GX-8 takes this one step further. The GX-8 is larger than a GX-7 but it's no DSLR is terms of size and is still a compact camera albeit slightly heavier and larger than the GX-7.

I won't go into all the advantages over the GX-7 because they are well documented but I defiantly think that the GX-8 is a worthwhile buy. The camera feels very well made (as all my Panasonic cameras have been) and the menus will be familiar to GX-7 users. The ability to almost completely customise the camera controls is a major benefit. One of the less well documented features is that you can now tether the camera using USB for Studio work etc (I have yet to try this but it is documented and is a welcomed addition).

I currently own GX-7, GH-3 and GM-1 and now the GX-8 and have now decided to sell the GM-1 and keep a GX-7 as a small walkabout camera in place of the GM-1, The GX-7 isn't as small but it does have a viewfinder which the GM-1 lacks which is a significant advantage in very bright conditions, the GX-7 with the GM-1's 12-32 small lens is great and my GX-8 will be paired with my 12-35 f2.8 lens.

Coming back to size, I carry around a small 'man bag' and the GX-8 and 12-32 f2.8 lens fit in there a treat as would the small flash. I originally thought the lack of flash would put me off but the GX-7 paired with the 12-35 f2.8 casts a shadow which shows up at the bottom of the photo at the very short end of the lens so I was going to add a flash to the GX-7 anyway.

Very good camera, great performance it's compact and easy to carry. Picture quality is superb and the 4k video performs really well. Overall very pleased with this purchase. It really comes into its own when you take a still from a 4k video shot, the clarity and quality is amazing.

Just got the camera... it is brilliant ..
Great at low light photography and the videos it produces are amazing
But you need good glass to get the best out of it

Style: 14-140 mm LensColour: Silver
Let me start by saying my preferred camera of choice is an SLR, its difficult to beat the great clarity of shot that a DX or full frame SLR viewfinder provides and that combined with great photo quality makes the SLR my historic camera of choice. However, SLR's have some significant failings - they are heavy, there is still no 4K video on a an SLR, and you can't shoot video through the viewfinder only via the screen and that is just palin dumb design, most SLR's also have poor autofocus capabilities in video mode.

So for a while now I have been searching for a second camera that still shoots good photos but is also great at videos. In addition I wanted something lighter & easier to carry. In particular this 'second' camera would be a unit that i can take out on family days out/holidays. A family day out Involves carrying the hoard of paraphernalia that kids need during the day, which subsequently leaves little room for a decent camera.

The list of cameras I've tested to fulfil this demanding spec has been extensive......

Panasonic fz1000 - great camera but the sensor crops in 4K video mode therefore the FZ1000 has no wide angle capability.
Panasonic TZ100/85 - no articulating screen, viewfinder is too small and the same 4K cropping problem.
Sony 6300 - overheats on 4K
Panasonic GH4 too big
Nikon DL range - no viewfinder!
Canon - no 4k in any Canon camera at time of writing this review
Olympus - Ditto.
Pentax -Ditto.

So by a process of definition the only camera left was the Panasonic GX8 (or G7). And yet I agonised for ages over buying the GX8, after all it is £1000 with a decent flexible sense (14-140mm).
