The patient has a fever. No! You're doing it wrong. You're supposed to take his temperature under the armpit! No! Put it in his mouth! Wrong! On his forehead! What are you doing? You're supposed to put the thermometer up his ass!

You're a prophet. I thought it would be better on it though. And bit concerned about battery life. Otherwise killer camera x 10

Jon, I largely agree, but in the face of so many posted videos flying in the face of his results, I'm shocked that he continues to downplay the odds of him having a bad unit. 

But he went ahead and got another one for comparison

This thread would be a lot easier if you'd tag yourselves as being pro max (he can do no wrong) or pro gh5 (he can do no wrong) or maybe that 3rd option no one is interested in that the "GH5 smacks everything else down in many areas, is equal in many others, but only a bit better (ohhh there's an argument) than the GH4 on AF and we guessed that (well JP did anyway) absolutely ages ago" group. I think Max does a lot of weddings and leaving AF on - set and forget - is really important to him and presumably many others.

Yet he claims he's still likely to buy 3. I actually thought he said he uses MF more often in his work.

In my native country, there's an old saying which wonders if someone's bad is from the trousers or the ass...

I don't think his new unit will save his grace other than keeping his integrity, I hope.

This taboo on the skills required to perform a task vs lack of them puzzles me... Copy that.

The top comments on YouTube say it all:

"I'm sorry. Love your stuff man but this is plain not good. Anyone who has shot with an A6300/A6500 or dual pixel Canon will know that this is bad. I don't care what setting you have it at...it's not as good as the competition. Plus, in order to have a shot at getting AF on the GH5, you have to test for 30 minutes at all settings while those other cameras just pull it off. It's funny, I watch the people who say "successful AF if you get the settings right" and watch the videos and I still think it sucks compared to the competition. You have to spend 20min testing to get it to the "maybe acceptable" range and that's horrible. The best setting on the GH5 has been worse than any Sony or Canon camera right now. Point to point is awesome but continuous is horrible. I love my GH5 but even the best continuous AF test doesn't come anywhere close to my Sony & Canon cameras. Don't buy this camera for continuous AF. Thankfully, there are about 1,000 other reasons to buy it. Again, really appreciate your videos"

 

I find it funny that because people buy the camera they need to defend it to convince themselves they did good spending 2K. Let's face it, the AF of GH5 is far from competition and this is not acceptable. 
Now this camera has a lot of amazing stuff and I am getting it (give it a chance) but let's be honest about the cons. 

I just can't understand why some can't accept that some owners are getting far different results than Max. I've personally demonstrated this no less than 4 times. There are many other videos on the net that illustrate this. Many.

This has nothing whatever to do with 'defending' a purchase. However I think many in the anti-GH5 crowd are defending their current equipment. ;)

On another note, it's stunning the number of child-like Sony trolling fanboys on his site. I find myself being attacked simply because I provided video evidence that not all GH5s are the same. 

Aint the internet great?

No worries, Ken. We have no need to go out of here to mercilessly be under attack... LOL ;-)

Moreover, attacking some new camera only to justify the needless compulsion to buy it.

Agreed, but let's face it, it took him a while. He got many posts suggesting his might be defective. With that said, It will be interesting to see what happens with his new unit. If he gets the same results, I'm gonna hit my head against the wall. ;)

Photo Joseph's already accepted Max's invitation. I think they're on for tomorrow, 9:30 AM. Should be bigger than Fischer/Spassky '72!

It wasn't clear to me whose turf they'll be playing on. I think Joseph wants home field advantage.
