New firmware Panasonic GH5/GH5S autofocus shootout. Does it match the Fujifilm X-T3, Nikon Z7, Sony A7 III and Canon EOS R?

In the Video CINEMA5D posted it looked better almost everytime. It picked up the subject quicker. 


I don't think firmware will help. The lenses are just outdated. Like a fellow youtuber said its like putting a wooden wagon wheel on a Bugatti. 

The 18-55, 23 f2, 50 f2, 90 f2, and 16mm 1.4 seem to be the best ones. I have also heard the 18-135 and 55-200 aren't as fast. 

I suspect that is so. I can confirm the 18-135 and 55-200 are not up to snuff. I find two problems with the information you provided.

1. The lenses you listed that work great with AF are not stabilized.

2. The lenses you listed that are stabilized are slow, and also hunt. What's more the 55-200 is VErY soft on the long end.

Essentially, none of the lenses that work well for AF provide the essential element of stabilization for XT3 video.

I'm hoping there might be an effective update for some of the stabilized zooms. Time will tell. 

Until then, the XT3 is only good tethered to a tripod or stuck on a gimbal---what a waste!
