Re: Is that only the GH4? Not the GX7?

I think the GM5 but not the GX7.

I have just been back through both Panasonic's announcement of the GM5 and DPR's "hands on" and haven't found any mention of DFD.  I might have missed it, but I went through the AF section of the Hands On quite carefully.

The LX100 has DFD, however.

If the GM5 doesn't have DFD I find that a bit worrying.  Why put it on a camera like the LX100 with an equivalent focal length range of only 24-75mm and not put it on the GM5 which is usable for sports, action or wildlife photography where you really need DFD.
