The G6 is not yet due for replacement. the money I do not have. but Panasonic makes it very difficult with the g80 but GX8 was my dream and future camera but with the weatherproof body in the cheaper g series. This is really my favorite. this camera I would like to test considerably. robustness solidity performance and how convenient is it better than the older G6 that I would like to take a closer look.
