  2. There is also a VERY interesting video comparison of
    several cameras at the second URL above - and the
    surprise for me was how well the tiny Panasonic GM1
    did with HD video! Hey, yuh wanna good video camera
    that fits in a T-shirt pocket?! 8^)

    A good review on a camera will always give the good and bad things that the
    reporter found. It may be a few minor things against the camera but a good
    reporter will find them. That gives a more balanced report. You can only
    improve on things that have weaknesses. I hope to read a report like this
    on this camera.
    Due to the lack of 4K cameras Panasonic has the advantage as this camera
    may not be able to be compared to other similar 4k cameras.

    Yes, read the review, above...;-) And I agree - see my
    reviews on my website, especially the most recent one
    on the Panasonic LX7...:
    http://www.donferrario.com/ruether/Panasonic_LX7.htm
    and this one on Nikkor lenses...:

    plus the several others here...:
    http://www.donferrario.com/ruether/MFT--Lenses.htm
    and also the various ones you can find here...:
    http://www.donferrario.com/ruether/articles.html
    (you will see that I don't believe in writing "puff"
    pieces...;-).
    **ALL** cameras and lenses have weaknesses - the "trick"
    is to have enough information from many sources in advance
    of purchase to make an "intelligent guess" as to what is
    relevant to you, and what best fits your needs and wants.
    In addition, the ultimate "test" is whether or not the
    gear fits *you* - and that is only possible when it's in
    use by you! Also (and I cannot stress this enough!), "new"
    does NOT mean "perfect", and "famous-brand" also does NOT
    mean perfect! Samples vary (bodies rarely do these days, but
    lenses of ALL brands and prices do vary (sometimes greatly),
    and it is best to find out that your new "Super-Whoopteedo"
    lens isn't very good (or is down-right defective) while you
    can still return or replace it (with a good dealer, without
    much cost to you).
    I think the ones above, while likely too new to be thorough,
    are a VERY good start... And, if nothing else, the *streamed*
    4K video is astoundingly good in 1080 playback.
    There are other 4K and HD video cameras around, compared
    verbally with the GH4 by pros - and also with side-by-side
    video in some of the above articles. For a new camera, the
    coverage has been reasonably thorough at some sites. Why
    "look a gift horse in the mouth" when by any current standard,
    the GH4 appears to be an astonishingly good camera (compared
    even with ones costing 50 times as much!;-).
