Just curious..

I don't have much long term experience with other brands (Sony, Olympus, Canon, Nikon and Fuji), but I really like to know what are the unique features (still and video) that I can ONLY find on Lumix camera??? Not only about spec, but also about user experience..

My guess (correct me if I am wrong)

1) Ability to do [AF] in MF use (dragging on screen).. I find this super useful for my video work.. This feature alone might be the reason for me to stick exclusively to Lumix, if there is no better alternative from other brands..

2) Ext tele converter both still and video.. very useful in many situations

3) FHD1080 10bit internal recording? (no one has except for XT3/4)

Is there anything else?

4K Photo (6K photo on G9).

A usable, straight-forward menu-system.
Note that I'm not levelling this exclusively at Olympus, but Sony and other manufacturers too. They could all learn from how Panasonic have designed their menus from a user's point of view.


Horses for courses. I much prefer Olympus's menu system, and I own cameras from both manufacturers and I use them both a lot. IMO Panasonic's menu system is not an asset.

Now compared to Sony, yeah, you've got a point!
