GH4 goes back. Dammit.
May 5, 2014

Sorry to say the GH4 is going back to B&H. Whild shooting over the weekend, I noticed a problem with either the AF or the IS with certain lenses, most notably the 14-140. At shorter focal lengths I just could not produce a sharp image. IS on, IS off, it didn't matter much, the results were pretty bad. Rather than work to find out what's going on, I chose to get a refund and keep the GH3. I may get another one in the future, but I'll wait a while and see if there's firmware updates that address this.

FWIW, the lens functions perfectly on the GH3 and can produce nice images at all focal lengths. This problem is clearly isolated to the GH4/14-140 II combination.

So, the question is, has anyone else noticed this?
