Olympus E-M10 II vs Panasonic GX8 Specs Comparison

Here is a quick review and specs comparison for the Olympus OM-D E-M10 Mark II and Panasonic GX8 Micro Four Thirds mirrorless cameras. You can take a look at the key differences between the two cameras.

Olympus OM-D E-M10 Mark II ($649): The new Olympus OM-D E-M10 Mark II mirrorless camera gets Silver Award (80% overall score) from the experts at DPReview. As the successor to the Olympus OM-D E-M10, the OM-D E-M10 Mark II combines the award-winning power of the OM-D family, first-class quality of 5-axis image stabilization and an all-new design with improved ergonomics. The Olympus OM-D series brings flawless, professional-quality images and video to photographers of all levels. But, the E-M10 II’s menus can be confusing, the lack of 4K video is disappointing, and subject tracking needs improvement.

Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX8 ($1,197): Utilizing a high resolution 20.3 MP Digital Live MOS sensor, along with a Venus Engine image processor, the GX8 is able to record 4K UHD movies at 30 or 24 fps; record full-resolution stills at 10 fps with AF-S or 8 MP stills at 30 fps; and work in difficult lighting situations with a top sensitivity of ISO 25600. Unique, in-body stabilization technology with select optically stabilized lenses work together for class-leading Dual Image Stabilization while our new 20.3-megapixel sensor achieves Panasonic’s highest image quality. The GX8 features a worry-free splashproof / dustproof rugged body so it stands up to some of the most challenging environments. Designed for maximum flexibility, the GX8 features over 20 interchangeable lens options.
