I've been trying to figure out what to upgrade my 50D to. Ultimately I think want that GH5(for video), but that will be a while before I can afford that, not to mention I don't think I realistically need that much camera at this point. So I was thinking the G85 w/kit lens. But now I saw some videos about the GX8 and am confused. From what I understand the GX8 is great a stills and works for video and the G85 is great for video and works at stills.
I'm wanting to get more into video, but not sure how in-depth I want to get. Most of the current video I shoot(GoPro and iPhone) is from a tripod or monopod and not be many fast moving subjects. This is why I think I can get by with the autofocus on the GX8 vs the G85.
My thought is to purchase the GX8 for the stills quality and see how much video I actually shoot. If I shoot a lot of video I'll add the GH5 to my bag and one dedicated for video and one for stills playing to their respective strengths. Or if the GX8 works enough for my video then I won't even mess with the GH5 and use the cash grow my lens kit faster and go on more adventures.
I haven't seen the GX8 in a kit so I'll order a fotodiox adapter($60) for cannon glass and start saving for my Panasonic lens collection. Which will I hope consist of the following, a 12-60 F2.8, 35-100 F2.8, 100-400F4 and short prime. I figure with these lenses and 2 bodies I'll be set for just about anything.
Does this seem like a good plan cost effective plan?
