Panasonic could be just subcontractor

All die markings say is that the sensor was manufactured at Panasonic fab. It might as well be designed by Sony and then they could outsource production to Panasonic.
Just like Panasonic produces flashes designed by Olympus or Foxconn produces iPhones designed by Apple.

If Panasonic had access to this sensor they would certainly have used PDAF for video in GH4, like Canon does in 70D. Instead, Panasonic had to develop their Depth-From-Defocus technology.
So, if this is Panasonic sensor why don't they use PDAF in GH4?
