Very tempting indeed. I really like the rangefinder form factor.
I wonder how good the IBIS implementation is gonna be. Probably not that great given Panasonic's track record (GX7 and GX8 were good for about 1 to 2 stops top).

Seems promising - perfect for street and shooting from the hip?
Interesting with that 16 mp sensor, could it be one with better high ISO performance?
Regarding the IBIS, I donÂ´t think Panasonic has the intension to make it better as IBIS alone. The primary function is to work together with the OIS. Just my guess.
I miss the tiltable viewfinder.

I think the key advantage is 2 extra stops of dynamic range. Now of course, 16MP on the new sensor technology might have even better range!
If they do a smaller G8 with both viewfinder and flash, then my G3 might be replaced.
After a rather long time a M43 cam I might be interestes in. However, in light of the stupidity of Panasonic in the past it could still be that they use an older (non-Sony) sensor in the GX80!
That was exactly it, the new sensor appears to have more dynamic range.
I noticed that in practice is the weak point of my 16MP G3.
