I sold my Panasonic G7 for the Gx85, should I get something else?

I wanted in body stabilisation for short films and documentaries. I plan to record audio separately anyway with a DR60. Is there another camera I should consider?
I plan on saving for the GH5 in the meantime.
Also if you know of good shotgun microphones, I'd appreciate suggestions.
Thanks.

I now shoot mainly with a GH5, but I bought the GX85 to use as my "fun" travel camera. I shot an hour long live stage event this summer with my GX85 and was amazed at how good the hand-held 4K video was. ( better than my GH4 camera )

Also, there is a Cine-D hack for the GX85 that is absolutely great. Looks just like Cine-D footage from my old GH4 camera.

The only drawback to the GX85 is that when shooting 4K your battery only lasts about 45 minutes, so you need to bring lots of batteries with you. ( I now own 6 batteries and a wall charger for my GX85 batteries )

Thanks for the response! Yeah, it eats through batteries but it's great.
