Quick reasons why we got the G85
4k video support at 30 fps - not 60 fps like the GH5, but 3 times cheaper than the GH5 and 200g lighter.
Unlimited recording - doesn’t overheat like Sony cameras.
Articulating screen - very useful for framing the shot.
Microphone jack - to be able to use external microphones to get good quality recordings.
Battery life - 4k non-stop recordings go for 1.5 hours on a single charge, unlike Sony cameras who tend to max out at 30 mins.
Image stabilization - not as good as a gimble, but very very good for hand held shots.
Weather sealed - can film in the rain unlike the G7.
G7 is half the price and can do 4k video recording. It just lacks image stabilization, weather sealing and has a slightly narrower kit lens.
Sony a6500 has amazing out of the box autofocus, but note has poor battery lift, overheats and is twice as expensive.
GH5 is a beast that can do 4k 60fps, but note it’s 3 times more expensive and you’ll need a more expensive SD card to record on.
G80 (The European version) limits recording time to 30 minutes per session. G81 and G85 (International versions) don’t limit recording at all.
