IR posts their initial GH4 Image Quality analysis and comparision

Imaging Resource has posted their GH4 Image Quality comparison and analysis against the GH3, EM1, Canon 7D, Nikon D7100, Sony A6000.

While there are the expected differences, overall it seems that the GH4 holds its own and provides some small improvement in processing.  Keep in mind the analysis is based upon JPEG output, not RAW, so there is room for improvement with all the cameras.

From what I have seen so far, I would say the GH4 still improvements are small and incremental, focused mostly on how image processing is handled and a small (⅓ stop) increase in dynamic range possible.   But we really need to see more real world work to know anything for certain.  Of course there are a lot of nice other feature improvements as well, plus the significant video improvements.

Time will tell how this all washes out in the long run, but I like what I am seeing so far. No big miracle improvements but good solid refinements.
