Then get the 7-14 mm in the 180 mm glas dome. Superior for split shoots.

 I know their IS is the top of the industry, so that itself could be a good reason to switch over from either Panasonic, or even for Sony people.


Panasonics IBIS seems to be equally good or better in the recent offerings.

Looks promising. But I don't think I'll be pre-ordering - just yet. There are still a few unknowns which I had hoped would be mentioned yesterday.
Apart from your list:

  • V-LOG (rumours from the floor - it will be paid upgrade again)
  • Crop Factor in 4K modes (no mention)
  • It will require the newer UHS-II Type cards (looks like they tried to cover that sticker up and failed.)
  • No word on compression
  • Dynamic range / Better low light

A crop in 4k is unlikely as the announcement includes a full frame photo ready out mode called 6k photo.

Therese is strong reason to belive that the multi aspent ratio sensor design from GH2 is back. Your shoots Will be wider than ever.

One of Photokina backstage rumors/leaks is that main LSIs in Panasonic GH5 and new Olympus are very very close :-).

  • Both include dual cards support, but with only one being UHS-II.
  • Both support 422 10-bit video, but Olympus got LSI with agreement to restrict it to HDMI output.
  • Both cameras will have impressive burst performance.
  • LSI supports new sensor based 5-axis stabilization algorithms (it means that it has necessary outputs to all coils and things). Will be strange to not see it in flagman. Stabilization algorithms sharing was one of points in new agreement rounds (long time ago).
  • GH5 sensor will be custom.
  • Some quiet talks are also about special film like filters ala Fujifilm.

P.S. One of the talks is that new G80/85 shares almost same LSI with GH5 but restricted.




From what I can see and the previous rumours everything points to the conclution that the "multi aspect ratio" sensor will be back (last used in the GH2).


The let down seem to be the missing internal flash. Will make TTL flash sync more difficult I guess.
