Coming in May .... bleh
Australia: 1100 AUD (1200 AUD w/ 12-32mm)
Germany: 700 EUR (body)
USA: 800 US$ (w/ 12-32mm)
UK: 509/599/729 GBP (body/kit/double kit)
In Sweden it can be ordered for about 750 EUR
Size seems to be very similar to GX7.
Specs are impressive, except for the short battery life.
Looks really nice, but I miss the tilting viewfinder.
I'm confused about the viewfinder. Is it 16:9 for stills or only for video?
And do you get 4:3 size on the stills image capture or not?
Really nice looking camera though.
One of the best but unheralded features of the GX-7 was the amazing 1/320s X-Sync. GX-80 is step back (stop back?) mediocre 1/160s.
Quote:It does feature an electronic shutter (up to 1/16000sec),
Viewfinder - I never had a GX7. I did like the GH viewfinders though.
(and I am not a fan of the E-M5 II viewfinder)
Why are you not a fan of the E-M5 II VF if I may ask?
3 different ways to view stuff, option to make it show the environment as an optical view finder would (i.e, bright in bright conditions, dark in dark conditions), and a bunch of other options.
Kind regards, Wim
