    GH5 is heavy.

  • The GH5 seems to have the same sensor as the E-M1. USB Type-C is very welcomed, fast charging through the camera would be nice, which can also help with all sort of stuff with a new GRIP.

    Bluetooth can be interesting if Panasonic implements a solution like Nikon for remote mobile app. I’ve seen a lot of people praising it for its practicality.

    Hopefully the changes in the 12-35 and 35-100 GX lenses is more than just cosmetic like in some other “II” lenses from Panasonic.

      Guess you were wrong about with your rantings about MAR sensors. This is a repeating pattern for you, I see you don’t mention how you were wrong all along.

      Pana IBIS does seem to weigh a lot, but it’s probably also increased build quality and heat management.

    • Sakaphoto Graphics

      It’s probably the weight of the higher price.

      If the sensor is the same, would Sony be able to just include the PDAF bits for Olympus and not for Panasonic?

        It’s probably the weight of the higher price.

        Seriously though, with that price… I wish I need to do a lot of video works to justify getting this (been wanting a GH for long). I should probably look into G85 instead. That thing’s a bargain.

        • Sakaphoto Graphics

          The GH4 will be a bargain any moment now.

    To Admin:
    Do you know which Codec the GH5 will use? Will the GH5 be based on H.264 or on the ‟new‟ (and apparently not very popular) H.265/HEVC ?

    Also, while we now know that the GH5 will shoot 10-bit 4:2:2 4K video and record internally, there is this thing called “6K Photo”. Apparently, this will be a still picture image taken from a 3:2 (or 4:3) video image (to be confirmed…). My question is this: if the GH5 will be able to shoot 10-bit 4K video, will it be able to shoot 10-bit JPEG still images in its 6K Photo mode?

    BTW, there is a provision in the H.265/HEVC specs for recording 10-bit (and even 12-bit) JPEG images!

  • Sorry, I do not know but the official announcement is tomorrow.

  • Mistral75

    Two additional lenses will be announced tomorrow:

    – Panasonic Lumix G Vario 45-200mm f/4-5 6 II Power O.I.S. and
    – Panasonic Lumix G Vario 100-300mm f/4-5.6 II Power O.I.S.

    Adorama briefly made available the US price of GH5 (1,999 USD) and some accessories.
