Its officially announced.

My quick take :
- If much cheaper than Gx8, then this could be a B cam. Issue is no mic input : (
- It has 5 axis IS!! OMG! and coupled with relevant Panny Lenses, has 5 axis Dual IS!
- 5 axis dual IS supports 4k video!! WOW

Run.. don't walk.. BBB ;p

This one looks really very very attractive with a spec sheet that looks like which Pana even threw the kitchen sink in , all for sub US800.

Frankly I'll prefer this over the GX8 lol.

No tiltable LVF as well. But still 5axis + 4k at this price point, no AA filter and an improved shutter in a small form and a very nice kit lens :)

Just noticed one simple feature that I quite like from using Sony A7s - USB charging, no need to lug extra charger when travelling.

May shorten the life of your cam if u always use it to charge your batteries.

I thought this meant you can charge it without, say with a battery pack.

https://www.ephotozine.com/article/panasonic-lumix-gx80-gx85-review-29143

Battery life - Battery life is rated at 290 shots according to Panasonic / CIPA test results, which is lower than other Panasonic Micro Four Thirds cameras, although we suspect it is due to the new in-camera sensor based image stabilisation. Thankfully, you can charge the battery using the MicroUSB connection, which will make it easy to charge the camera where-ever you are. The GX80 uses the same battery as the GX7.
