AF looks ok, I wonder if you checked if it behaves the same in 24p/23.976p All were done in 60p, but much of what Max did was also done in 60p when he still incurred failures. I've concentrated on 60p because I intend to shoot in 60p more often. 8 minutes ago, eleison said: I looked at those videos. yeah, the GH5 focusing sucks. Don't look at the subject, but look at the surrounding area. You can see the camera going back and forth even in static shots trying to anticipate movement. In the shallow depth of field videos, the back and forth caused the blurred background to "bloom" and de-"bloom". The a7sii does the same thing and it annoys the hell out of me. The a6500 doesn't and that is one of the reason I still have it (even though it has horrible rolling shutter). a6500 is a focusing god compared to the a7sii and apparently to the gh5 also. Oh, well, I guess Panasonic wouldn't be selling as many gh5s as they thought they would. They were focusing on image quality while a lot of people have "moved on" from image quality and is looking for things like auto focusing. Photojoseph guy.. dude, what a shill. His videos show the lens focusing back and forth. Yeah, the subject (him) is in focus, but the camera is still focusing back and forth trying to anticipate movement. Good focusing cameras don't do that. Perhaps, I'm wrong. Maybe, he's not a shill, but just ignorant. Or maybe he doesn't care that the camera was "hunting" because the subject was in focus. However, no real video professional would accept that type of focusing. I cannot think of any movie that has that type of focusing without doing it on purpose. And I'm having a hard time remembering any movie, tv show that would do that on purpose. Not sure if you're referring to my videos, but if so, sure, why would we look at the subject. When I shoot a video I'm just praying people will ignore the subject and focus on the background. Do you even notice how much better the AF is in my video than the total defocused mess in Max's video? Do you not even see this? Good grief. The GH5 AF is fine, thank you, but it's obviously not for you. And again, I shot in that very same mall with the esteemed A6300 and it often wouldn't even focus on the subject and instead, focus totally on the background. I never had that once with the GH5. I'll take a bit of hunting over a total ignoring of the subject. I don't believe there was any improvement in the A6500 in terms of AF.
