Items to sell/buy/trade: Panasonic Lumix GX8 body + 12-32mm f/3.5-5.6 zoom + extras (case & strap)

Prices: $375 + $75 (or $400 for both)

Lumix GX8 camera (with OEM half-case + custom strap): $375
Panasonic 12-32mm zoom lens: $75
Discount price for both together: $400

Location: United States, Oregon

Ships to: US

Description: I'm selling my lightly-used Panasonic Lumix GX8 body - with a shutter count of ONLY approx 3,850 actuations. I'm the 2nd owner. Camera comes with original box, charger and battery. I'm including an OEM Panasonic leather half-case - which enhances the grip of the ergonomically excellent body, as well as protecting it. The case has a nifty flap which opens, allowing access to both battery and SD card. I'm also including an incredibly comfortable & functional 'sling' strap, whose tiny 'clutch' lets you shorten or extend the strap in seconds, useful while walking, hiking or biking. The rear LCD screen has been protected with a thin covering for its entire life. (The rear screen can be reversed, too - giving the camera an X-Pro3 look)

The camera is a foreign (non-US spec) model, identical to the US model except for the video frame rate. International or PAL standard specifies 50p/25p frame rates, while U.S. NTSC specifies 60/30. The original owner modified the camera's firmware to record video at the U.S. spec - the only downside of the conversion is that, as you power down, a yellow Exclamation Point appears on the screen just before shut-down. I've been assured by smart gearheads that this doesn't affect the camera's video (or other) operations at all; but I've never used it for video so I'm taking their word for it.

GX8's with this low usage typically sell for much more; but in the hope of making this affordable for financially strapped fellow photographers, my mu-43 price for the camera body alone (including the leather half-case and custom strap) is $375.

Am also selling a good copy of the wonderful tiny 12-32mm pancake lens. I bought this lens used, and it lives up to its stellar reputation. Its only downside is that the lens has no manual focus ring. Mounted on the GX8, it makes a great street-shooting rig, but I've also used the lens for landscapes and portraits, too. Typical used prices of this lens, in good condition, on fleabay, are $100 and up; but for mu-43 photographers, the price will be $75

If you buy both the GX8 + the lens together, I'm further discounting the total price down from $450 - so, here on mu-43 the price for camera + lens + accesories, is $400

I paid significantly more for the whole package, but I'd like to make this affordable for Covid-afflicted fellow photographers, since I know what it's like trying to scrape together funds for good gear.

I'm attaching photos which show details of camera, case, strap and lens. I believe (as do many others including Mike Johnston of TheOnlinePhotographer, that the GX8 is one of the best handling and best designed Panasonic mu43 cameras ever (as well has having a great 20mb sensor); and the occasionally underrated lens has a stellar operation. I'll ship to either the U.S. (via USPS Priority) or Canada (via Air Mail); shipping costs will be split between seller (me) and buyer (you).

Images for this listing: File(s) attached

Payments accepted: Regular PayPal (buyer adds 3% for this option)

Shipping method: USPS in the U.S., Air Mail to Canada

Shipping charge: TBD

Handling time: As soon as I'm able, generally 1 to 2 days

Hey Miguel,

I’ve been on the lookout for a GX8 to get into micro 4/3. I did just make an account here in order to reply, although I’ve browsed the forums and BST threads for a little while now as well as the FredMiranda BST and r/photomarket. I don’t know if I’m supposed to have credibility of some form, or if that’s just on the seller’s side, but I’m happy to confirm anything if you need. Also, I think I may have spotted this camera on eBay in one of my saved searches, so I don’t know if you’d rather I buy it there.

Is this still available? I’m very interested in this at your asking price, and would be happy to puchase it/figure out how to buy stuff on here. Please let me know if you’re willing to sell it and if possible what the next steps are.

Edit: more info - I’m also in the US, PA to be specific, and have a PayPal account that’s a couple of years old. Feel free to ask me any questions or for any info. Also I’m new to photography, upgrading from an iPhone :biggrin:

Thanks very much in advance.
- Ivan
