They need to make their camera more ergonomic, bigger grip with BIGGER battery to be a real game changer.

Was the video shot with the OM-D E-M5 MII?

halfmac: The GH4 has not time limit on recording, period. No Lumix GH series has one. I find it indispensable for recording Live shows and weddings. Most others requires expensive external recorders to have this ability.

Well, we are lucky here in the USA.

DaveyBee: Hmmm... I'm not convinced! It may well be the most fantastic m4/3 camera in the world, but if I'm going to have to carry a bigger and heavier camera around, I think I'll fall back on my trusty 7D. I love my GH2 because of its size and the fact I that I have travelled with it very successfully across Europe and have some fantastic photos - I will certainly need some convincing on this one, especially at the price (in the UK, we're likely to be looking at around £1000+ body only!). Ho hum...

The Gh3 is smaller than the 7D. the lenses are a lot smaller.

This is going to be a great camera for video makers. The GH2 already is. Panasonic has included almost everything we have asked for. The GH3 out specs their $4000 professional AF-100 m43 video camera. Thank you Panasonic for listening.

Andy Spawn: What is the point to make a M4/3 camera as big as a SLR camera?

The GH3 is the size of a very small Sony SLE A57 which is considered a amateur camera. The sensor on that camera is much bigger. This is a ruggedize professional SLE.

There has been no official pricing for US from Panasonic. Amazon sets their own price. PhotographyBLOG has the price @ $999.00 and I think that will be more realistic.

On article Blackmagic Designs announces Blackmagic Cinema Camera (353 comments in total)

The sensor size is smaller than 4/3rds cameras. Why not 4/3rds lenses. A lot more optics would be available than expensive EF glass.

Built in battery working for an hour and a half with a two hour recharge? Not! Come on guys.

SDI and not HDMI for more expensive monitoring. Needs a external viewfinder.

Some of you are missing what the these lenses are being make for. Another camera in the Panasonic 4/3d's line up is the professional AF100/101 video camera. As a user of one, it is really missing a good fast zoom. I have been using my Canon 24-105mm f4 IS with an adapter but it is even too slow and I can't use the IS as it has no power. The Lumix 14-140 is slower for inside shooting and not constant apertur,e but it has OIS. I want a f2.8 lens or faster with OIS for handheld.

These lenses will be great on my GH2 as well. If you want small, buy pancakes. If you need low light zooms use a bigger lens. The camera is still small. I have the 14 pancake for small and the Leica 25 for fast but neither has OIS. Even with these new lenses I will keep both of those lenses.

I can not wait to get my hands on them. Hopefully at NAB.

BMWX5: Can this fan use the ACLU guide against the security of this stadium or not?

http://voices.washingtonpost.com/rawfisher/2007/09/you_cant_take_pictures_here_co.html

I have found that we have no rights as photographers in professional athletic stadiums - so I don't go anymore. A few years ago I tried with no success to enter the Safeco Field in Seattle with a 30 year old Tamron 300mm f2.8 SP on my Olympus E-1. I was told that my lens was "too big". That I was competing with the "professional photographers" who were photographing the game. My solution - don't patronize these overpaid sports teams so I have not even watched a game on TV.
