Any alternatives to a G80/85?

Recommended Posts

Thank you everyone for your inputs. As build in stabilization is a must I will get a G80/85

I can't speak to the G80/85 but as a recent GH5 buyer I can confidently say that the lenses are the other half of the picture, and if you have to stick to a budget then put some aside for great glass.

I have a pretty decent collection of glass - a couple of Zeiss Vario Sonnar's, complete set of Yashica ML primes , a Sigma 18-38 1,8 , a Samyang 12mm and a Panasonic kit zoom, well - and a speedbooster. These cover all my needs 🙂

Update. Just bought a used - march 2018, almost no use and still 1,5 year warranty left - for US$ 380. Very close to half price here in Denmark. Will arrive sometime next week.

Congrats! I've owned this camera twice now and never got along with it, I am however about to try it out again...

Across the pond here in Sweden they go for about 450-500 USD new, body only.

Nice! That is kinda the price I'm waiting for them to get to for when I do my upgrade from my Panasonic G6

Am sure that price will be quite common place enough by mid way through this new year.

Interesting rake on the G80 here.

 

lol! He calls the M50's excessive 4K crop a "positive" because it means he can get different focal lengths from the same lens

And then he tries to render the IBIS as sometimes a "negative" for the G85??

Biased much??

Yes, I guess I was pretty lucky with the price on the G80. Besides the GH4 that I mentioned earlier in this thread I also have a G6, - which was my first camera. Still a  good camera for 1080 in my view. 

The G80 should arrive here tomorrow. In particular I´m looking forward to try out the IBIS and - as I understand - the better lowlight performance compared to the GH4.

Well, seems to me quite a few vloggers  spend most time in front of the camera. Another quite a few also seem to try to be comedians,  All together they might have other camera needs 🙂. .
