Can anybody chime in? How good these prices are? I bought a G7 last month but was unimpressed with the still image quality. Does this have better image quality?

Yes take off the 14-42mm and put on the 12-40mm f/2.8 and you will be impressed.

Would be nice if they included the EZ lens. Wonder if customer service would swap that out.

The 12-40 is one of the best pieces of glass for its price. And m43 is a completely different use than full frame. By having 2x crop you are able to have much more portable equipment

thinking about the Panasonic GX8; off the top of my head, I remember that it's really only Panasonic lenses that can take advantage of the Dual IS, correct? or is it still worth taking a look at some of these lenses for one that wants to do portraits?

I have both the GX8 and G85 and I'd say stay away from the GX8 because the in body stabilization sucks on it. The G85 has way better stabilization, I can hand hold shots down to 1/8th shutter speed with the olympus 40-150mm pro at 150mm with the G85 and you know that olympus lens has no stabilization. On the GX8 I get blurred handheld shots at 1/100th at 150mm with the same olympus lens.

To answer your question, yes you need panasonic dual is supported lenses on a panasonic dual is body to have panasonic dual is.

I had a g7 before I upgraded to the G85 and I can say the G7 takes great pictures even with the kit lens. You do have to learn the basics - shutter speed, iso, and aperture. A good prime lens works better for indoors and low light than the kit lens. iAuto doesn't always take good pictures, especially in low light.
In other words, you have to know how to use the camera but the same goes with any camera really.

Compared to Olympus's cameras, the olympus cameras usually rank a little better than the lower end panasonics on DXOmark but very similar.

I feel the same way. Maybe I've been spoiled with my smartphone. I got this for video anyway but I did expect better results and experience than my smartphone. I need like 5 shots to get a good picture and then i'll need to edit them on the pc. HDR is crap compared to my galaxy s6 edge. Hopefully there is a big difference in sharpness when I upgrade my lens.

This is a great price for those going into photography IMO. My iPhone 6S+ and Lumia 920 took great photos, but after owning an OM-D EM10 Mark I, I really hate using my smartphone for photography now. Yes the best camera is one you have, so for those times I know I want the best IQ, then I take my EM10 Mark I with me for those times I'll want awesome photos. If it speaks for Olympus, their EM1 Mark II got gold on DPReview as well. So this EM 10 Mark II should be pretty darn good. From what I understand it uses the same sensor as the EM 10 Mark I, but improves on other things. I do question the on-off placement because I love having it on the thumb I grip my camera with for quicker on-off operations. I'd recommend this whole heartedly to people who want better IQ over their photos. If you have an EM10 Mark I, probably not worth the upgrade, looking to wait for an EM5 Mark II for my upgrade, but for first timers, I was thoroughly satisfied with my Mark I, and I'm assuming the Mark II should prove the same case for many others who'd like to make photography a hobby. Video is pretty shoddy compared to smartphones (I still use my iPhone 6s+ for 4k versus the HD only EM10), but I love taking photos with the previous generation. I love feeling that click of the shutter and switching out lens for telescopic sports shot, awesome bokeh rich macros, and sharp portraits that aren't over processed.

$100 seems to be the usual going rate for these, and they can typically be had for less on ebay
