  1. Electronic ND would be a sure buy from me. Simple as that. I also assume 4k60 would be there, but internal ND will seal the deal.
  2. Since there's an example of the 1DX II skin tone in a wedding video, here's one with no Canon cameras. Just Sony and Panasonic.
  3. yeah it's totally subjective. canon color is often praised for the skin tone, and i shoot a lot of people. having used both canon and panny for years, and sony more recently, i've seen a progression in how panny evolved their color. the gh2 and gh3 were much worse for skin tone, but the gh4 with my custom profile looks amazing in natural light. when i first got my a7s ii the skin tone was very underwhelming, but after tinkering with the profiles it's now spitting out images that are just as pleasant as canon, but not as overdone. i'm sure in post i can get the canon shots to match the sony in color, but there are other things that can't be matched, such as dynamic range and level of detail. so if i don't tend to use the canon cameras for a gig anymore.
  4. While it's true the 1D X II is ahead in several areas, such as PDAF. By the time its successor comes out, which will be a few years, I have no doubt Sony and Panasonic would have matched or surpassed in these areas. Canon still has its Canon colors, but I have grown to like the colors in other brands. I definitely prefer the GH4 and A7S II colors, both with custom profiles, in good natural light. Canon is more pleasant in dim artificial light, but I can tweak the other two to be pretty close. So I won't be going back to Canon just yet, but it's good to see they still have some strong points.
  5. tried that myself. not very impressive even after updating the firmware, which made a big difference - it was almost unusable before firmware update. it's ok for still subjects, but if you try to photograph a moving subject with the a7sii, get a sony lens instead.
  6. i'm pretty sure you have to get sony lenses. i'm starting to get native sony lenses now, especially now that they have f2.8 zooms. shows they are serious about the platform
  7. i just want to say this is one of the funniest article headlines i've read!
  8. i think it'll be better for panny to do two product lines. keep the gh5 as a m43 camera because there are definite size and weight advantages. launch a new line with either 35mm or full frame sensor and new lenses. keep the ergonomics amazing, get better color depth and low light, and i'm sold.
  9. that looks like a combination of AF hunting and possibly a bump in the slider move
  10. it's gh4's 4k vs 5d3's raw. I think being able to compete with full frame raw in low light is very impressive. a little bit of noise reduction and there's nothing to fear anymore!
  11. i'll help out the stabilizer questions. it's either a skyler or an xcam. looks more like the skyler as I have the xcam one and it doesn't look exactly the same. works great with the gh3 and i'll assume the gh4 balances fine with it too
  12. and oh, the GH4 price is insanely good for what it gives. panny is out for blood
  13. I think it'll make the gh3 a bit cheaper. I'm getting two GH4s as additional cameras because I need more bodies this year, but otherwise I'd be selling my two GH3s. Quite a number of people would be selling to upgrade.
  14. very simply, all of my camera purchases are on hold for the GH4. and I suspect a lot of people are in the same boat. nothing that canon or Nikon can put out this year will touch it, and every DSLR they have is obsolete.
