    The manual says that Video and 4K photo range is 200-6400. Those use the Electronic shutter, so that would be what I would expect. Hopefully someone with the camera can chime in to confirm.

    A similar spec is listed for the G7, so that may be a more direct upgrade from your G6 (if you liked that camera and shape)

    You can shoot up to the max ISO (25600) with GX8's E-shutter.

    Quick question would you turn on electronic shutter by default?

    Not if you shoot action.

    Why not for action?

    The E/silent shutter suffers slightly from the Rolling Shutter effect when shooting faster moving objects. That can change with shutter speed, but most just turn it of in those situations. In general, I leave the e/silent shutter on when out doing general shooting, and then turn it off for Action shots, flash use, florescent lighting, and a few other situations.
