Looks like a good deal on a GX8 plus lens

At castle cameras 699 down to 499 after cash back, GX8 together with a 14-42mm kit lens. Looks too good to be true.

Of all the Panasonic cameras I might consider this is probably the last one I would buy. Too big, shutter shock issues, rapid price drop since launch, flipping screen, too big (did I already say that). The GX80/85 looks a much better proposition.

Shutter shock with mirrorless crops up on various models, Olympus has had it too. Makes you wonder how a camera can be released onto the market with a fundamental problem such as this. The Leica M, Q and S are mirrorless, I've never heard of any complaints about shutter shock with any of theses - shows it can be done.
