The Micro Four Thirds camera ecosystem has played host to a number of great hybrid cameras, including the Lumix GH family that was ever so popular in the YouTube space. Micro Four Thirds strikes a good balance between features, capability, and budget for users looking to buy into a solid system without overspending, and the Lumix GX85 was reviewed positively for this quality and versatility.
The 16 MP Panasonic Lumix GX85 is a little bigger than the Sony RX100 V, but it manages this small body without sacrificing its interchangeable lens mount, electronic viewfinder, or dependable five-axis built-in image stabilisation. Despite its age, the Lumix GX85 is capable of recording 4K at 30 fps and 1080p at 60 fps, making it a competent video camera. In terms of stills, the GX85 snaps 16 MP images with support for RAW capture at up to eight fps with the mechanical shutter and 40 fps with the electronic shutter.
The Micro Four Thirds lenses in the Panasonic Lumic GX85 bundle are the Panasonic Lumix G Vario 12-32 mm f/3.5-5.6 ASPH lens and the Panasonic Lumix G Vario 45-150 mm f/4-5.6 ASPH. MEGA O.I.S. lens. These lenses are great starting lenses that cover a lot of the practical zoom range you might need when you get into photography. They're not the fastest lenses around and there are certainly higher quality lenses in the M4/3 space, but they are versatile kit lenses to get started on.
