Sensor- The A6300 features a new 24.2 MP sensor combining with BIONZ X image processing engine to produce outstanding image quality whereas the GX80 employs only 16mp with four thirds sensor.
Low pass filter- A6300 uses anti aliasing filter but GX80 not, enabling the GX80 camera to gain the rich details of the images and the moiré will effectively be reduced by the Venus engine incorporated inside GX80.
AF system- The one key reason behind the success of Sony A6300 is its unrivaled AF system, completely based on hybrid sensor (phase+ Contrast) and also utilized inventive 425 AF points that can track anything much accurately within little time as 0.05 seconds (4D FOCUS system). But the AF system of GX80 uses only contrast detect sensor as well as very limited 49 AF points can’t be much effective in tracking the desire subjects quickly and precisely.
ISO– Sony A6300 offers the users a better lowlight shooting performance, with expandable ISO range of 51200 whereas GX80 offers the expandable ISO range of 25600.
Image stabilization– You can see that Sony doesn’t give its users a camera shake correction method but GX80 has engineered impressive 5-axis Dual I.S.(Image Stabilizer) that is highly effective in suppression of blur including an O.I.S. (Optical Image Stabilizer, 2-axis) and a B.I.S.(Body Image Stabilizer, 5-axis).
Continuous shooting speed- You can easily achieve images free of blur with A6300 because the camera uses 11fps of shooting speed whereas only 8fps of continuous frame speed offered by GX80.
Verdict- Sony A6300 features bigger sensor, advance Hybrid AF system, 425 Points AF system and ISO upto 51200, we highboy recommend you to get Sony A6300 over Panasonic GX80 GX85 camera.
