Re: GX8 rumours - 20Mp sensor

The side flipping screen isn't to my taste though - I often shoot from the waist with the screen flipped horizontal and doing that with a side-flip screen means making the body effectively twice as wide; cumbersome and less discreet. I really hope they don't do the same with the EM1 mk ii. Dual IBIS looks intriguing, but I'm finding it hard to believe it could beat the EM5 mk ii!
I will post some samples (JPEG as there is no RAW converter yet) later today but they will be down-sized to 8 megapixels at the request of Panasonic (pre-production cameras). I did a crude back to back comparison with an E-M1 at high ISO. It looks good at a glance.
