So tempted .....
I've been looking at this and the G90. Leaning more towards the G80 though, the upgrades of the G90 don't seem worth the extra £250 or so. Also the G90 has a larger crop when shooting at 4K, which kinda sucks.

Looking at the comparison on DP Review, it appears the G80 is also less noisy than the G90.
I have this. I got it for 549 a month ago from John lewis as a Wilkinson cameras price match, but with a free 25mm f1.7 lens by redemption from Panasonic, so this is a good deal but not exceptional. I'm a beginner but so far I like the camera but have a lot to learn to get the best results. I have found the kit lenses to be good in well lit scenes but a bit slow in low light like indoor shots of my children. I expect the 25mm lens to be better though.

Wilkinson Cameras were selling this for £549 with the 25mm 1.7 lens also as a Black Friday special. £499 is I believe the lowest price ever for this.

Why this over sont a7 ii


Lens size and crop factor (for telephoto), ergonomics, touch screen, 4K Video, fully articulated screen, EVF is possibly better also.

He's right. When i bought my car i was stupid and didnt get a Sony A7. Wish i had. Apparently it seats more, is faster, is more economic, smaller, bigger has more wheels while only having one. Etc.

Seriously i think its the 2 sides to the phone syndrome.
Apple and Sony have taken very clever approaches to marketing and jo average laps it up. Therefore you get those that think smart phones (particularly apple users) are better than ILC's and the other way you have those that think Sonys full frame does everything 10 times better than every other camera.

I tend to sack off relying on Aperture and just use a decent flash (they can cycle fast enough for constant shooting, and can be bounced) I find even with what appears ok light and on apsc im running high iso's for indoor shots and rely on the kid being dead still. So i just throw a flash on my MFT instead and they can run about all they like in near darkness!
Kids are a real challenge for cameras.

Yes that's the deal I got john lewis to match. The point was that I don't think this deal at 499 includes the lens so it's actually a higher price as the lens goes for 138 new?

Thanks for the tip! Do you find that still gives a reasonably natural image in terms of colouring?

Only if you require the extra lens, otherwise this is a better deal
The free lens was a promotion by Panasonic for purchases on or before 1st December 2019. Its not available any more.

I think £549 with the free lens was a better deal - its a cracking portrait lens or you can flog it probably for £100. However that deal is not available now and this is a great deal too.
Will John Lewis price match this?

As I said in an earlier post, they did match Wilkinson Cameras for me.

With the proper flashes you can adjust the power so if you want to compromise the iso a bit you can always drop the flash power (and bring a bit more color in).
Its win win, you can use as much or little assistance as you want. You can even bounce it off a colored wall.
Im not saying never go for the natural light, you can get some great moody shots without a flash - but its dependent on a lot of factors lining up. Where with the flash its 2 or 3 test shots to set it and everything there after will be pin sharp.

That makes sense. Thank you. My next investment.
I got a G85 as a grey import new from eglobal for £270 about a month ago as it was hard to resist. It's currently closer to £290. I'm very pleased with it. The G85 is the same camera, but in my case, for the far eastern market.

Seems a good price, did it come with a lens and 3 year Panasonic warranty?

Do you have a link?

Found it. Looks like it’s £440 now.
Not allowed to post link as merchant is banned ok HUKD
I didn't need the kit lens so got the body-only. Only 12 mths warranty. Still a very good price for me.
