GX7 users who upgraded to GH4 - worth it?
Jun 19, 2014


I am toying with the idea of getting a GH4.  I really like the GX7 I got about 7 months ago and I use it for a lot of my work even though I have Nikon D4s and lenses from 17mm to 400mm.

The GX7 small size and silent shutter are big advantages for taking photos without disrupting people. I will pull out my D4s when all hell breaks loose or I am in a fast moving situation.

How does the af+DFD compare to DSLR af in day to day situations?  Is the AF faster using Olympus 12-40 since DFD doesn't work on non Panny lenses?

What features do you feel are worth upgrading from GX7 to GH4?  I am just asking those who have upgraded to see if the hype is worth the upgrade?

I wanna avoid G.A.S(gear acquisition syndrome) and thought I'd ask other gx7 users who upgraded.
