Here in Australia we also have a good deal, A$1350 on Amazon.

How does the autofocus go in video? Does it pick up the face quickly or does it hunt and pulse?

Don't expect video camcorder face focusing but with a good lens is it ok if used with skill. The killer function is using the 6K stills (which are in fact an H265 video with sound (make sure you have NOT used the silent switch on front of the camera) for a 5.5K video which allows you to crop amazingly in down sizing to 4K or 1080P - it has a 10 minute limit which for most work is ok.

You can add V-log if you color grade.

Not a Gh5, but it is the next best thing.
