Panasonic DC-FZ80K Final Thoughts

"Love this guy."

It is light and easy to carry with you. Only gripes are slow focus and short battery life. Mirrorless has come into it's own. The Panasonic DC-FZ80K was with me at all times. I will be upgrading to a better lens when finances allow.

"Fast shipping!"

Dynamic range on this camera is also very impressive. The ergonomics are perfect. The flash can be overpowered rather than the subtle fill. In practice, the Panasonic DMC-GX85KBODY produces superlative images. I've added some sample photos taken with this camera and a 50mm f1.

Great battery life, about 300 shots in cold weather. That being said I just love to travel and taking pics as a hobby. Users need to be open-minded and find new ways to use the Panasonic .

"Very good quality."

The Panasonic is by far my favorite camera since the Nikon D700. Portability of this camera is wonderful. I've only touched in certain points there's so much more. The whole package is well thought out. Even with the lens, battery and SD card, it weighs very little.
