The Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX85 (GX-80 or GX7MKII) Camera
The GX85 comes ahead of its rivals in the entry-level mirrorless interchangeable lens market with some incredible features for the price. Major points are gained through the Dual I.S. image stabilization that combines 5-axis in-body stabilization with the internal lens stabilization found on Panasonic IS lenses. The GX85 also features Panasonic's DF or Depth from defocus autofocus which calculates subject distance and uses that information to drive the autofocus system.
The GX85 removes the low-pass filter giving even sharper images from the 16MP CMOS sensor. The ability to shoot 4K (UHD) at 30p is enhanced with the 4K PHOTO mode that can take advantage of Panasonic's "Post Focus" technology allowing for a change of focus in post and for pulling 4K still photos while still shooting at 30 frames per second.
