s_grins: Actually, bringing GH4k to this comparison is a big achievement for Panasonic .On other hand, it is puzzle for me why DPR decided to compare GH4K and SONY A7s. Why not to compare GH4K to Oly E-M1?
You have a great knowledge! So explain to me why GH4 could not be compared to E-M1 instead of SONY A7s - in terms of stills of course.
Both GH4K and E-M1 cameras do stills, do not they

I do not like the idea of such a comparison. Without any review it is clear that SONY 7s has advantage in noise/low light performance, but in regards of practical video taking GH4 is the winner.
I'm more interested in analysis of GH4 DFD AF focusing that is a really something special and unique.
For me: x6 zoom and weight that does not exceed 600g.
s_grins: This camera is still a bit (quite a bit) heavy for me
I'd rather want a 1" sensor camera with lesser zoom range - 24-200, but not that heavy. 600g is a max. for me

This could be the best all-in-one camera with perfect balance of sensor size and ZOOM range. But 1.8 lb of heft deems this camera useless for me. For those who do not mind to carry 1.8 Lb, RX 10 could be a perfect companion when price settles down to under $900.
It is good to see people who take their jobs seriously, instead of taking it easy. I trust them and their products.
Artpt: @DPReview, was there any press release given regarding compatibility with Olympus lenses?
In my understanding, Panasonic can be responsible for Panasonic lens DFD profile. Other makers of M43 lenses will have to write a lens firmware updates in order to include necessary DFD data into profile. I think this is an obvious and fair.
Very good and stylish shot.
Warm, safe, quiet.
digitri: Wonderful capture!
Thanks for looking and appreciation.
This is a very promising first step that leads to new frontiers.I have a time to wait for further developments
Actually, it is a photo from painting. Levitan is a 19 century painter, famous in Russia
Pal2012: New Poll:
How many here think this poll was flawed by the overzealouse fanboys who keep trying to say it wasn't?
I think I'm paranoid person, but I would not go so far...After all, either team has overzealous fanboys with identical level of intellect and capabilities to obstruct the fairness of the poll. So be suspicious about one side only does not fill profile.
This is just a poll. There is no poll that can satisfy everybody. This poll too. Moreover, polls come and go, and we will be the same
"Spray-on" batteries could give a boost to energy pump into.
I'm puzzled by combination of optical VF and ZOOM lens and would be happy to learn more
