    Hi Daniel, Thanks for the awesome review. I was almost ready to buy Sony 6300. After reading your blog, I am confused now. I'm just a travel photographer. I used Canon 70D but now I am searching light weight & better low light performer. So, for my requirement which one…

    I'm using GX8 + pl100-400. Do you think oly markII would be a better body for kinda wildlife photography? My thought is that GX8 still the best (GH5?). I'm especially interested in auto-focus performance. Many thanks in advance.
