If Panasonic had access to this sensor they would certainly have used PDAF for video in GH4, like Canon does in 70D. Instead, Panasonic had to develop their Depth-From-Defocus technology.
So, if this is Panasonic sensor why don't they use PDAF in GH4?

because Panasonic deemed PDAF on sensor (in its current generation in M43 cameras = E-M1) is not really better than just CDAF (unless you have PDAF lenses like Olympus to support and even sell some old stock)... now that might change (or not) with further improvements in PDAF on sensor.
