Re: How did they test them?

Did the test the AF in live view for all the cameras? I can't find the page that makes the claim that the AF in the GH4 is better or faster than those other high-end cams.

There is a multiple page thing about how they test but I don't think there is anything regarding AF being better in that article itself....AF is one of the elements that give the cameras their rankings.

I think the OP just looked at the rankings and the GH4 DOES rank 1st.

If you look at the components that make up that ranking, then it does not "win" for AF speed or image quality.      The cameras that rank above it in those areas are let down in others enough to be placed below it.

Having said that, in its class it may well win for AF (and it is certainly the winner for video regardless of class).
