I’m ecstatic about the GH5s because soon the market will be flooded with cheap used GH5 cameras. 😂

Don’t know that I would count on this. I have no plans of selling my GH5, even though I have the GH5S arriving this week. 

I see them as different animals. My GH5S will mostly live caged, while my GH5 will roam free as I travel. The reason is simple, the GH5S is not a stills camera, whereas the regular GH5 is.

Does anybody have any experience / info on the battery life of the GH5S compared to the GH5 and GH4.  The GH4 has *insane* battery life, but the GH5 has significantly less, which we were told was largely due to feeding IBIS.  How does the GH5S rate on that scale?

I notice no discernible difference between my GH5 and GH5S. Honestly, they seem about the same. I would not let battery life be a deciding factor.

Here is some footage I shot with the GH5S while in Las Vegas. I'm enjoying this camera a lot. Size and weight make it perfect for travel. Used the Panasonic 12-35mm f2.8. I think the new DJI Ronin S will make a wonderful companion to this setup.

Lowest price yet seen for the GH5S on Amazon/B&H/Adorama/etc, US$2K (well, $2,026.19 to be exact):

I won't be buying, but it bodes well for the future of prices for secondhand buyers 😉 Buy  a G80 before Christmas and then a cheap GH5S a year later?
