    If this is true, this may be the camera to beat, just as the GX85 was a mere half year or so before. I'm assuming this camera will have the same redesigned shutter as the GX85.

    This looks like a bled of the G7 and the GX85. The Dual IS, weatherproofing, & magnesium body look to be the big upgrades.

    Olympus better come out with something more exciting than the E-PL8 this Photokina. Panasonic is releasing some impressive cameras.

    E-M1 II is rumored to be pretty exciting.

    I think Panasonic upgrades are more evolutionary, but well-rounded. Olympus seems to take revolutionary leaps and then gives a couple years of minor tweaking!

    I haven't anything about changes in AF. Hopefully the AF updates to the Olympus E-M1 mkII will push m4/3 forward.

    Just found this
    Time lag of the EVF is less than 0.01 seconds, 10000: 1 high contrast

    B&H have it listed at $698 body-only, which is likely a typo. There's no way Panasonic could sell this camera for that price. The $900 it's listed for on Amazon seems far more reasonable IMO, and even at that price, it's a smoking deal IMO. 5-stop IBIS, weather sealing, larger EVF, 4K video.

    This has me VERY seriously considering selling my GH4 and picking one of these up instead...

    Yes, it's like a mini-GH4, only with IBIS.

    And it seems it has the second-best EVF among Panasonic cameras (GX8 is still the best in that respect).

    This is the camera I will upgrade to in a couple of years.

    I want to see how long exposure noise is compared to the GH4. Panasonic hasn't had a good track record of long exposure noise in cameras with IBIS, so I'm hoping this camera bucks that trend.

    According to Jacob James's review it records 4:2:2 internally. Interesting.
