    Panasonic have released the new GX8 - 20mpx highest of all m4/3. In-body stab, but with the added tech if used with a pany lens that has lens stab it combines the two for better than the 5axis Olympus offers. 4k vid. The camera is big so will put some off but m4/3 is about keeping the lenses small imp having a rangefinder with a decent grip isn't a bad thing imp. Both vf's are o-led and big.

    Looks good to me and might eventually look at one to have alongside my much loved gx7.

    Ah, but does it have video IBIS, the GX7 never had it.

    Spec looks decent.

    It has the top end dual' stabilization 1080p for 4k just normal in body stabilization which is still much better than the gx7

    Obviously VS the GX7 having no stabilisation in video. Thats pretty cool.

    The 20MP would be nice, but there's not enough for me to make me swap from the EM5-II. Looks good though, especially if you want to shoot 4k video. Pricey mind.

    The GX8 and the panny 35-100mm would be a nice wedding combo
