Not long ago while cleaning the house more thoroughly I discovered my father’s old Industar 50mm F3.5. There are many versions of the Industar 50, this one is the version for the M39 mount without the “-2” in its name. And now I have finally bought a M39 to micro 4/3 adapter to test this lens out.

Panasonic has just announced its Lumix DMC-GX80 (GX85 in North America), a lower end model of the GX camera line. Judging by the MSRP of $799 including the 12-32mm kit lens, it is meant to be a competitor to the Olympus OM-D E-M10II and Sony A6000.

The GX80/GX85 sports a 16 MP sensor without an AA filter, a new shutter mechanism for reduced shutter shock and 5-axis Dual IS. According to Panasonic the absence of an AA filter increases resolution by 10%. Like Panasonic’s latest cameras the GX80/GX85 also offers 4k/UHD 30p video and video related features, such as 4k Photo and Post Focus.

On the live view side of things there is a 2.76 M-dot EVF and a 3” 1.04 M-dot touch screen monitor, which tilts up by 80° and downward by 45°.

There is a black and silver model, both of which will go on sale at the end of May.
