Hi all! After about 7 years with my Nikon D5000, which is my first DSLR, I'm considering the switch to mu4/3. Main reason: I would like to take my camera out more, and the D5000 + lens is just a bit too bulky for my motivation to do so. I have mostly used the D5000 for mixed travel and street photography, and the lenses I have used most are the 18-105mm zoom and the 35mm f/1.8, both by Nikon. I have also used a few "toy" lenses on it with great pleasure (fisheye adapter, holga lens, ...), and have also dabbled with analog photography on various cameras! When making the switch, I would like to reduce in overall gear size, but I would also like not to lose important features, so as to move to a "equal" or "better" camera, not just to a "smaller" camera. So far I am taking a closer look at the GX8 as well as the GX85 (GX80, GX7 mark II). The GX8 is on the upper end of my available budget for the body. I really value the IBIS on these two cameras as the most important feature. The fact that they support 4K video and that they're fairly recent makes me think they're also future proof enough to last a while. Any other cameras I should consider for these criteria? As for the E-M1 and the E-M5 II, I would be hesitant to consider them because the E-M1 II would surpass them both, and soon. For the sony a6300, it is lacking stabilization. Yes, I am open to suggestions outside of mu4/3, but don't expect them here. Some personal pros/cons: GX8: + 20MP is a more substantial upgrade over my old camera - I don't really save that much in gear size with this one GX85: + IBIS in movie recording is sweet + It's very reasonably priced and leaves me with some money for a cheap fisheye lens, for example. - Some parts like the sensor and the EVF seem to be a bit outdated Now for my first lens. I'm following the philosophy "lens is more important than body when it comes to image quality". I enjoy zoom lenses for versatility. So I am leaning towards either the Olympus 12-40mm f/2.8, or the Panasonic equivalent (12-35mm) of that lens. This brings me to the question: Since the camera should have IBIS, does the Panasonic 12-35mm f/2.8 offer any advantages over the Olympus equivalent? Has anyone tried the Olympus PRO lens on the GX85? I know it is a bit bulkier again, but I like the longer reach on the tele end. It also scores a tiny bit better in lab tests. Any advice and personal experience would be greatly appreciated! Cheers!
