Lumix GX8 Reviewed by ePhotozine
Lumix GX8 Reviewed. Just a few days ago Panasonic announced their new GX8 and it’s boasting some amazing new technology that I’m super excited to test. ePhotozine just posted their hands-on review and they loved it. What caught my attention is the in-body’s 4-axis image stabilization that works with image stabilized Panasonic Lumix lenses to give the camera 6-axis image stabilization. 6-axis IS is accomplished by the lens IS and the camera IS working in tandem.
The idea of lens and in-camera IS working together was a question often asked by Olympus owners when using Lumix lenses with their Olympus bodies. In the Lumix to Olympus case you still just get in-body IS.
Now with Lumix to Lumix you will get both. Even better is the fact that my Olympus 40-150mm will now get at least 4-axis IS when used with the GX8. Can’t wait to give this camera a try.
