Seems like a good price...

The high speed Panasonic Lumix DMC-GH4 is a tough and rugged professional quality mirrorless camera featuring a new Live MOS Sensor and Venus Engine to give superb picture quality. It's the world's first Digital Single Lens Mirrorless Camera to include 4K video recording for truly professional results.

Superb Picture Quality for Lifelike Textures
The image processor Venus Engine is newly developed with new quad-core CPU that enables high speed signal processing. Combination of new Digital Live MOS Sensor and the Venus Engine dramatically improves sensitivity (max.ISO25600), gradation performance, resolution and colour reproduction to achieve even higher picture quality.

4K video creation for professional quality
The GH4 further evolves to meet professional quality and standard with the capability of 4K(Cinema 4K: 4096x2160 / 24 fps and QFHD 4K: 3840x2160 / up to 30 fps) video recording in MOV/MP4 or ultra high bitrate video recording at 200 Mbps (ALL-Intra) or 100 Mbps (IPB) without recording time limit. In addition, a variety of practical functions required for professional video recording are newly integrated.

Superb Mobility & High Speed Response
The high-precision Contrast AF now integrates DFD (Depth from Defocus) technology to achieve ultra high speed AF of approx.0.07 sec. The burst shooting power is also boosted to12 fps(AFS). Both 2,359K-dot LVF (Live View Finder) and 1,036K-dot rear monitor adopt OLED to minimize time lag while enhancing the resolution.

Tough & Durable
The main structure of the DMC-GH4 is composed of magnesium alloy full diecast front / rear frame. It also features splash / dustproof construction thanks to the sealing on every joint, dial, and button. The shutter unit is also redesigned to be even more durable for approx. 200,000 times release

Expandability for flexible usage
To offer more flexible usage, the DMC-GH4 incorporates Wi-Fi with NFC Technology plus in-camera RAW development capability. It also complies with External Flash (DMW-FL580L), Stereo/Shotgun Microphone (DMW-MS2) or Battery Grip (DMW-BGGH3) to support professional photography/videography.

I'm torn between this and the new G80 which costs £799 with 12-60mm lens and a free battery grip. Currently have a GH3 which I love, but it's getting a little old now. Will have to have a look tonight see if there's a good comparison of the specs tonight when I get home.

Yeah, I have been thinking the same thing. Wondering as to whether I should go for the G7 or the G80/GH4.

I am looking to replace my decade old Canon 350D, and am looking to use the new camera for stills, as well as short films/Youtube - with maybe the option of doing a feature film at some point down the line.

Could really use some advice on the matter...

I don't know the Panasonic line of cameras. In general try and avoid bundles, unless it is all you need or it contains things you would have bought any way including the specific body model.
If you but the G4H, you can always add a grip and lens. You can't make the G80 a G4H.

Unless you need the specialist video features, I think most people would be best off with the G80. The GH4 is fairly chunky and heavy, the G80 is a bit smaller. Also the G80 has in-body stabilisation, which could be useful. Plus a few other new features, eg focus stacking.

The 12-60mm lens seems to be a pretty good standard lens, and its splashproof. It costs about £300 on its own, so the G80 kit is a good deal.

GH4 is quite a lot better in many ways than the G80..
Max Shutter Speed - 1/8000s vs 1/4000s (faster shutter speed)
Continuous Shooting - 12.0fps vs 8.0fps (4 fps faster)
Battery Life - 500 shots vs 290 shots (210 more frames with a single charge)
Microphone Port - Yes vs No (High quality audio recording optio)
Headphone Port -Yes vs No (better video control(
Environmental Sealing - Yes vs No (shoot at tough conditions)
Flash Coverage - 17.0m vs 6.0m (11m longer range)
Color Depth - 23.2 vs 22.9 (higher color depth)
Dynamic Range - 12.8 vs 12.6 (higher dynamic range)
Low Light ISO 791 vs 662 (better High ISO performance)
Max Video Resolution - 4096 x 2160 vs 3840 x 2160 (Higher Resolution Video)
Flash Sync Port - Yes vs No (Connect off-camera flash)

Where is that from? Some of it is incorrect - the G80 does have a microphone port, and does have weather sealing.
Yes, the GH4 has better battery life. But the G80 has some sort of "economy mode", which claims up to 900 shots. Its easy to swap to a spare battery anyway.
Most people won't notice the minor differences in shutter speed, frame rate etc.

Those specs sounds more like the GX80, the G80 has a mic port and is weather sealed.

Sorry chaps, spec are from the GX80. The G80 does look much better, as already said possibly a better bet than the GH4, esp with the kit lens.

I personally love the form factor of the GH3/4 it's probably the best camera I've used and the layout of the controls for me is near on perfect. My other half has a Nikon D600, which I find big and unintuitive when it comes to controlling it.

From the looks of what has been unveiled about the upcoming GH5, nothing has been mentioned about in-body stabilisation and the focus seems to be pretty much on video capabilities. With the G80 getting weather sealing and in-body stabilisation it looks to be pretty good upgrade compared to the GH3 and even the GH4.

Found this comparison video on youtube G80/85 vs GH4

The 12-60mm lens seems to be pretty good, weather sealed too, would be a good travel lens when limited on space travelling abroad, (hand luggage only). The grip is just a bonus. Could always sell the grip and lens if not needed too. The new grip seems the have a price of £249 and the cheapest the 12-60mm has been is £269.

Though again I already have the grip for the GH3 which works with the GH4!
