Hey all, :)

just wanted to share same thoughts on the GX850 with the Panasonic 20mm 1.7 - a really nice combo, which I definitely have to use more often.
I bought the camera a few years ago but didn’t use it all that much; didn’t realise at the time how much I rely on IBIS.

Since today was a rainy day but I really wanted to take a stroll in the woods, I took the GX850 with me. The (really!) tiny size helped a great deal, since one can put it in the pocket of a jacket with one of the pancakes.
Here are a few pics from today (nothing spectacular, just to show how well it served its purpose):

(Resized the images, hope they look okay!)

Since the light wasn’t good and it was relatively dark, I just used shutter priority and auto ISO to ensure sharp images.

Using the camera as a point and shoot works like a charm, it feels very capable and most of the time I’m very happy with the images it produces.
Honestly: I really think Panasonic does this camera line a huge disservice in marketing it only for people upgrading from a phone. The line up is very capable and can produce high IQ photos.

Also…that Panasonic 20mm is really something special. I get why people call it a gem. Ridiculously sharp wide open including good corners and the “look” it produces is very nice.

Very nice. Welcome to the forum.
Thank you!

I've read the forums for several months - the community seems very nice and I've learned A LOT; and now want to give something back (as emotional as that may sound). :)

Nice job!
The first one is a stunner especially.
Your set really shows off the personality and power of the little pancake. Essentially DSLR-quality in your pocket.
When buying used, it's probably one of the best bang-for-buck combos, as well.
Lastly, while I am an Olympus guy myself, I adore the clean and sleek lines of the Lumix line. The GX800/850 with the little step in the casing is the best looking, in my opinion.
Welcome to the forums!
