Yea, the question is do we still like 8bit-4:2:0-moiré-2K-camera. Isn't it a year too late for GH3...

Yea those will still be around but better spec cameras coming.

When "rougue" camera companies up the ante, then the big guys are forced to change especially when it cuts into sales. Interesting times coming.

I'd like to think this is true, but how long after Red released the One did anyone else release a 4K camera -- four years? (Of course, the Dalsa Origin predates them all.)

"The F5 is no slouch either despite the mooted price tag of $15,000. Whilst the 1080p C300 cannot even do higher than 30p, the F5 can do 120fps in 4K.".. [b]not true.[/b]
From SONY:[list]
[*][b]60 fps [/b]out of the box (XAVC HD).
[*]with a planned upgrade [b]120 fps [/b] (XAVC 2K/HD). Unique to this process, there is no line skipping or sensor windowing. So there’s no crop factor, no loss in angle of view.
[*]with the optional AXS-R5 outboard recorder and a planned upgrade [b]120 fps 2K RAW[/b]
[/list]
also, there are several sites with the announced price, cheapest is around 20 000€ for [b]F5[/b]+[b]AXS-R5[/b]
