  1. You people crack me up. You finally get an affordable 4K Panasonic GH model that you've been begging years for, finally has ALL the video-specific features for audio, proper codec, MFT lens, portable ergonomics... and your first reaction?


    "No ND filter?!  WORTHLESS!"


    Ungrateful kids...


    *curmudgeon curmudgeon*


    perfectly said! +100000000



    Some revision and a little mantra ( attached) to chew on.
    1) Resolution is not as important as Color space. I'll take 10Bit 2.5K over 8Bit 4K any day
    2) Built in ND filters matter a lot since many of us need them to knock down the sensors in bright light and NO I do not like taking the time to constantly deal with filters in my mattebox every time I change shots.
    3) Panasonic will be wasting time and an opportunity if they release anything 'Pro' in a M43sensor ( Please forget the Speedboosters- that's more unweildy hardware between the rear-element and the sensor than I care to deal with in a supposedly 'Pro' camera)
    So have a look at my mantra and goodnight all !

    i would NOT agree on 3. Look how many great movies were shot on super16, it is not that Super35 or FF is a must for everyone/everything! There is room for m43 imho. Lens line is very well developed apart from one thing - at least one pro(sumer) video-oriented lens. If Pana releases for starters something like Sony 18-105/4 power zoom - that would be awesome. 


    In any case, I am personally very happy to hear those rumors cos I was quite disappointed by Pana dropping of AF line and by the absence of developments/new products from their side in pro m43 segment. Let's hope they are back to the game. 

  2. I hope they won't abandon m43 for video, that would be a shame. The fact that they mention a Super35 sensor clearly indicates that they want to, at least, cover new grounds. I wonder what mount will it be? Probably PL. Sony use E-mount, PL and FZ, Canon - EF and PL. Both produce some lenses (zooms/primes) for video, Panasonic has started with m43 in AF100/101, but did not really show any intention of developing it for video in terms of lenses.
