I have just ordered the GX80, 279 after 200 cashback, just caught the last day of the offer. Incredible price.

I have been using the Panasonic G7 and am pleased with that camera but it doesn't have IBIS.

Since I sometimes use a 400mm f4.5(800mm equivalent) old Canon FD, non-stabilised, manual lens for 4K video recording, the GX80 will effectively provide stabilisation for this legacy lens and other FD lenses in my collection.

A demo on youtube of GX80 stabilisation with non-stabilised, legacy lenses is very impressive.

Improved DFD focus with my Pana 100-300mm M43 lens should also be an improvement. The GH5 is way outwith my budget.
