I think it's kinda odd the inner workings of camera manufactures are obscured to such a degree that you need Chipworks scans just to find out some basic info on a sensor.

no, Panasonic openly published spec of the sensor several month ago = http://www.semicon.panasonic.co.jp/ds8/c3/IS00006AE.pdf (that is unlike Sony, which doesn't)... they simply did not say that it was used in E-M1.

PDAF or not, I'm simply curious why Olympus got it several (could be many) months earlier in E-M1 than Panasonic in GH4 if it's a Panasonic sensor.
