The Olympus M10 II utilizes 16 mp sensor and on the other hand Panasonic Gx8 mirrorless uses newly developed 20 mp sensor and finally when we go to check the quality of picture between the two then we will sure find bit better images captured with the E-M10.
Image stabilization- The 5axis image stabilization carries by M10 II makes your images blur free because this apparatus included helps your camera to keep the images away from the effect of camera shake whereas the Panasonic Gx8 carries Dual I.S. combines the GX8’s sensor-shift image stabilization technology with lens-based image stabilization to compensate for a broader range of movement types to render sharper, clearer imagery. Dual I.S. requires the use of compatible Lumix lenses featuring O.I.S.
AF points- The Olympus E-M10 II fast contrast detection autofocus system employs 81 areas for accurate and quick focus of the subjects no matter whether it’s running wildly or in a static position while 49 areas for focus in Gx8. So with
