jl_smith: Too many tools in these DPR comments, it's sad. Why must everyone always equate any other format to FF? Who cares? If the shooter wants to shoot FF, then they'll shoot FF. If they want m43, they'll shoot that. Same for APS-C.

These equivalence dorks don't seem to realize there are a ton of benefits and drawbacks to *any* system, and every shooter is an individual and will rank these pros and cons differently.

Instead of realizing this and maybe, just maybe contributing something useful to the conversation, they echo the same crud they do in every...other...story that isn't whatever their chosen format is.

Why? Is f1.4 12 mm glass cheaper to make for FF or m43s? No. It is like saying Should FF sensors be as cheap as mFT sensors? No...they use more of the same material with lower yields per wafer. It is much more expensive. Same with lenses.

Hefty in many ways it is not for me, but it adds another probably very good lens to this expanding system. A specialist lens this time around for sure, but het mFT manufacturers at least knows a system means bodies AND lenses...

Error in the text: in eshuttermode it (sadly!) falls back to 10bit and while you write it is not so bad since shuttershock is a thing of the past, it is not so nice when you want to shoot timelapses...And eshutter is much nicer then and 10bit is not so nice...

DavidNJ100: This test should have included the A6300. If it had, the GH4 would not have been the best video camera.

Sidebar: poor ergonomics and lack of accessories (e.g., third party flashes, I live by my lithium battery Godox flashes) hurts the A6300, but it is half the price of the D500 and 95% of the performance.

Beyond that, the D500 is only $500 less than the D750. There are somethings the D500 may be better at, but not many. Remember, the D750 has a crop sensor mode and can get full frame DOF on video.

A6300 overheats in video, even the manual says so. That is a great addition to the GH4 I guess...Batterylife on the GH4 is fantastic too (not mentioned). A host of excellent and native lenses, great ergonomics, flipyscreen for video is another nice addition over the A6300. It focusses better in low light easily, does even focustrack on low light.
I am actually very happy for two years now with the GH4. There is this lust for HiRes Oly but only when it becomes really usable for landscapes and GX80 IBIS would be nice but that is going to be a GH5 thing.
What people should expect by now is Sony getting a grip on that overheating in video and start making excellent native NEX lenses.

In reply to:

vesa1tahti: How would you compare this with E-M10 II? Is there any difference in IQ? Thanks.

IQ depends on a lot of things. Just look at its IQ when shooting action and Oly's. It will do so much better because it can AF continuously where the Oly struggles...a lot. So it is better in video and for sure is more versatile in stills too. Does the EM10II have 3 or 5 axis otherwise it is GX85 too here...

I am sure dpreview finds a way to give GX85 a silver award. When a reviewer fails to recognise 4K plus that stabilisation at such a price point as a huge bonus clearly distinguishing it from the Sony...That says enough to me. He was glad to take 1,4 Kg cam equipment with him D750+ lens....Wouldn't it be easier to have another 2-3 batteries with him? For sure battery life is an issue, I agree. But 200 gram or 7 times of that to save the day...

It is a mystery to me how dpreview seriously says that the Sony A5100 is an incredibly compact cam etc in their final sentences. We are talking interchangeble lenses and we really know that many lenses of the Sony are far from being compact let alone being good. You'd expect more from any reviewer than just make the mistakes firsttime buyers make buy going for the body and forget about the importance of lenses.....

So G7 and GX8 hang for shuttershock. Because otherwise they were just stellar in their class. Silver. Both have workarounds, but alas....

Nikon has shuttershock too with workarounds. Yet it gets cold. While I understand we cannot just compare one cam over another it is clear shuttershock has caused the Panny's to get silver. Wonder how Nikon gets away with this...

TORN: And the winners of the next groups will be...

A6300
A7 II
A7r II

The old fashioned guys may use a Nikon, too.

True. When I browse trough the various offers, it seems that GX85 from what I read is probably the best deal out there but they assume a lot. In essence they haven't tested it yet..

Different people, different thoughts.

Androole....I was may be overdoing it a bit. A bit. But it says so in their handbook of the cam I have been told. It is also noted in this review....So after 5 yrs this is somehow acceptabel, where others do not have such a problem at all....Well...Must be me I guess.

Well I disagree nathto. First of all Xtrans is not a sensor made by Fuji. It is a different kind of Sony sensor to be sure. Also A6300 is more capable since it does give you 4K video and nice warm and comfy hands to go with that so no gloves needed which makes video-operation so much more enjoyable. Sony has been making this feature for 5 years now and no one seems to be able to catch up.
The A6300 is a very good cam. Only point is that its downsides are downplayed by reviewers over here while of some other cams they are making a huge point of some minor issues that can be circumvented...

Jorginho: How unexpected!

1) It didn't take long
2) It has got a gold award!

For a Sony? Seriously? Pentax K1 review I guess is still in the works? Makes sense since you review Pentax cams often too, last time only 2 years ago.

I realised that a few minutes after I typed it, so that is seriously a nonsense remark from my side, indeed rubbish! Thx for pointing me to it as you are probably completely right.

In reply to:

ThePhilips: I wonder how many more cameras with the full-sensor readout Sony has to produce before Pana would make one too?

How is Gh4 getting long in the tooth. You can shoot video without worries you know, you also have Vlog. After 2 yrs I love the cam. Batterylife is unsurpassed as well. Af is great.
I find it good to see Panoly not only focus on camerabodies but lenses too.
Now that they have figured out 5 axis IBIS+video in 4K (GX85) the time has come for a GH5 with this ability and be a smashing cam. New shuttermechanism is nice too. Now if they can do 80D AF in video...that would be quite soemthing.
I think we can expect a better EVF too but I wonder about the sensor. Since I think they will use the 20 MP m43 sensor we currently see in GX8/PenF I do not expect a lot of development on the stills side. May be an even better version of DFD might make it better again for actionshooting surely if they also can appply zerolag like the A6300 does.

MrTaikitso: TBH, for this money, I would get a GH4 + 12-35 f2.8 or other versatile lens. Still best in class video from my year of more of viewing 4K on YouTube. Plus you get all the sockets (mic/headphone etc) And of course, a usable menu system and tactile on body controls. I have owned an NEX 5R and an NEX 3 model before my current camera (GX8). These cute Sony's are capable of superb stills and video, but a pain to use! A6300 seems v pricey for it's deficiencies although it is technically amazing how Sony can cram so much advanced tech into such a small body - their expertise.

Well......we now have the GX80/85 too and that seems a very serious camera for that kind of money, bringing 4K video without overheating problems (would be a first one for Panny), bringing a better EVF, 5-axis IBIS, much better lens choice as Always with mFTs.
Where I felt the A6000 very muc hdeserved a Gold award 2 years ago i fail to see how this Sony (with overheating problems AGAIN!!!) still gets the award. What is it? A better EVF, sensor is not much better from what I see. If I have to compare this cam with the GX8 for instance....well......how did that one get a silver award? Shuttershock inspite of it letting you shoot at full IQ with the eshutter...
GX80/85 has introduced a new shuttermechanism to prevent even that now the fun is: can we find a small point that dpreview can penalise it for?

Lucas1964: I took a year to decide between Panasonic M43 or Sony 6000, and I found it a hard decision. Video is very important to me and both systems had their advantages. I recently decided to go for the G7. Now that the 6300 is out I was reconsidering my choice… It surely is a heck of a camera, but it has its flaws too. Several tests have shown that it had extreme rolling shutter and the overheating problem is not something to discard lightly. The most important drawback to me remains the lack of convincing lenses for this camera. Sony now only offers good (but very expensive and large) full frame lenses, and if you decide to invest in these lenses one should move up to one of the A7 camera’s. The lack of affordable and good lenses for this format would be an insurmountable problem to me. It is a shame, because on the camera side they seem to lead the pack…

GX80.GX85 might be an option. A solid silveraward winner on dpreview for sure!
