  1. Yeah, but I also record sports and other events and don't usually have access to AC power. If one battery only lasts 30 minutes, then I'm going to go crazy swapping batteries over a 2 hour game.
  2. Anyone know what the battery life is supposed to be like? The long recording times don't mean much in the field if you go through batteries like crazy. Then again, maybe we can get an adapter cable for one of those super high capacity USB batteries that will output 12v (Amazon has at least one that is 30,000+ mah). I hope their implementation of the focus peaking is good. Focus peaking in camera is better than not having FP, but external on larger screens is often better.
  3. Is it just me or is anyone else bothered by the fact that the sample in the article is not "In Body Image Stabilization" (i.e. IBIS), but rather Panasonic's "hybrid stabilization" that combines both IBIS and optical image stabilization (OIS) in the lens? And then the sample video adds in what appears to be an "in body" digital "warp stabilizer". While impressive, I would like to see just how good the IBIS ONLY is with either a non-stabilized lens or with a lens that has stabilization turned off for an "apples to apples" comparison with the Olympus EM5MkII. If Panasonic requires hybrid stabilization to match the EM5-II, then it is a much more expensive solution because it requires the correct Panasonic stabilized lens to give its max benefit. Sure, I actually have those lenses (12-35mm f/2.8 and 35-100mm f/2.8), but I want to see how good it is just with the IBIS only for use with my non-stabilized primes and other zooms. Does anyone know if there is a recording limit (e.g. 29:59 min) on this camera? If so, then, IMO, IBIS is not ready for the GH5 because one of the best benefits of the GH series is its potentially unlimited recording time (at least to the limit of the battery, which appears to be about 3.5+ hours with the GH3/GH4). I use it all the time for event recording and it would be very problematic for me to lose that functionality. (Sorry for the brief semi off-topic GH5 reference.)
