Hello SD!

The Adorama deal for the Panasonic GX8 (black [adorama.com] or silver [adorama.com]) is back and at a better price.

Seems like a great camera according to the reviews:

Lens - 12-60mm [dpreview.com]

Great deal. If I hadn't recently spent way more on camera gear than I should have, I'd be all over it.

Get it. It's a very big upgrade. Got a gx7 body last year and wanted to find a 14 to 45 lumix lens. Lol, got a amazon warehouse deal on a GF2 with the lens, cheaper than the lens alone. Now use the GF2 as a Extra body.

It's a huge upgrade. Right up there with the GH4, Pen F and EM1.

I was going to go for the GX85, but this is too great of a deal to pass up!

i know but can't have too many gadgets and thanks to panasonic pooping out a new model often, resale value is low.

I want the body, but really have no interest in a slow zoom lens. Is there any kind of resale value for the 12-60?

It's one of their newer lenses, they seem to go for around $400. Not sure how fast they sell though.

This is a way better deal than the G7 one right? Even with the lack of the prime lens? I have a g1 and a ton of the lenses, so I could easily get over $850 for all my old lenses.

damn i wish this had the 5 axis stabilization like the GX80/85 has otherwise i'd buy this in a heartbeat. I'll stick with my GX7 for now and hopefully they announce the GH5 soon.

if you don't mind take some lost, amazon is buying it for around 300 bucks. it's quiet new, so i doubt there is really any used out there to get a good estimation on street value. But considering even if you sell it off ebay / amazon after paying the fee and stuff, you probably not loosing much and save urself the hassle and wait time and potential price drop which panasonic is pretty good at :x

That's a tough call.... the two lenses with the G7 make it a really good deal. But the GX8 is a better camera. I have the 14-140 lens and the G7, the size of it is about the same as the old 45-150 or the original 14-42 lens -- it's a great lens that replaces two lenses. And that 25mm lens is really nice, I use it all the time.

The GX8 comes with a 12-60 lens which is supposedly very good. I think it's a bit overpriced right now, but if you plan to sell it, that's a good thing.

Either one will be a nice upgrade on the G1. It just depends which lenses will be better for your needs, I think.
