Panasonic Lumix DMC-G85 / G80 Review

 

Panasonic's G85 is weather-sealed, has 5-axis in-body stabilization, 4K video capture, a new focus stacking mode and a fully-articulating touchscreen. Does it live up to these impressive specifications? Learn more

Panasonic Lumix G80 / G85 review

 

The Panasonic Lumix G80, or G85 as it's known in North America, is a mid-range mirrorless camera that's based on the Micro Four Thirds standard. Announced in September 2016, it replaces the 18 month old Lumix G7 and is positioned at a slightly higher...

Good quality images out-of-camera, close to 20MP models ; Weather-sealed body with big EVF, articulated touch-screen, UHS II slot ; Very impressive built-in stabilisation for stills and videos ; Great quality 4k video with mic input ; Very fast single...

No movie frame rates above 60p, so limited slow motion possibilities ; Rear buttons are too small and flush to the surface ; No USB charging in-camera ; Needs to slow to 3-4fps for continuous AF and live feedback ; Refocusing during movies not as...

Panasonic's Lumix G80 / G85 is a highly compelling entry into the competitive mid-range market. Like most rivals at this price point, the G80 / G85 offers a viewfinder, articulated touch screen, loads of manual control and Wifi, but goes beyond the...

Panasonic Lumix G80 / G85 review

 

Big features squeezed into a small body

Excellent EVF and touchscreen ; Strong AF performance ; Good in-camera raw conversion ; Great results with 4K video

Only 16MP resolution ; Some over-complicated controls ; Interface could be simplified ; Noise reduction a little harsh

While not quite perfect, the G80’s feature set and performance make it one of the most compelling mid-range mirrorless propositions around.
