    We all know that 4k is a different beast due to its resolution for shooting with a moving camera. However today I was test the Gx8 @ 1080p with the built-in stabilization and OIS with the 12-35 and the 7.5mm. I was on level ground and walking slowly - the results were pretty darn good fake steady cam video. I normally run any shaking stuff through Mercalli 4.0 PRO and it does an incredible job. But I think for run and gun work this GX8 combination at 1080P is very usable and at most will take a very quick run in Mercalli to be perfect if needed. If you've got a Gx8 try it, you might like it.

    You mean the IBIS works for video as well now? I thought in the GXs it was for stills only?

    If you have an OIS lens, for 1080p only the Gx8 can add software stabilization along with the lens stabilization and it is very effective IMHO.
