Re: Need honest opinion GH3 vs GH4 for still photography

I've had both cams. Since I prefer my fast manual lenses, I would have to say focus peaking is the single biggest improvement. Love the zebras too.

The faster shutter speed in GH4 certainly helps for action photography, as does the faster readout speed in e-shutter mode. There is a noticeable improvement in jello with action photography.

For most everything else, Performance/ IQ is practically the same IMO. I'm not a fan of viewfinders so it doesn't matter to me, but the EVF is definitely nicer in the GH4.
