On reading your GH4 list of 'issues' - I feel your pain.


I'm really not happy with the colour rendition from mine, even with MWB. There must be something that can be fixed using a LUT / standard preset to get rid of the Purple tint. 

(Alas all the playing in FCPX using 3rd party tools I can't figure it out)


Isn't there a 140mm dome for the 8mm - would that help with the spilt shots?


I think, to be honest swapping out to another system won't solve your issues, yes the ones listed, but then you will end up with a another list for the camera you choose.


From a rumour going around, the GH5 prototype is currently in the same body as the GH4 - so might be worth waiting till there is news of that - as if so, some things (ISO, color etc) might just be a camera upgrade away.


Another thing, which you haven't mentioned, which is another annoyance for me is lack of IS on the 7-14mm - using a FF camera with those not so wide lenses will have IS.

or perhaps even gaining some quality.


We would be gaining OIS - which would be a cool addition.


Will await some testing - but looks like the 29 Port, bayonet system and the WWL will be on my shopping list.

I would 't use ANY continuous AF system unless it had phase detection.


These Mirrorless cameras (and most compacts) use Contrast Detection, which causes the 'in focus, out focus, back in focus' issues when its hunting - and gives you have odd looking footage.


Personally I have the AF switch set to 'S-AF', Continuous-AF turned off and have Shutter-AF turned on. Then when I want to record I point the camera at either the subject (or something 2-3m away)- with the hyper-focal distance providing everything in focus (for f5.6)  at that distance and beyond.


If I need to refocus while recording, you can either half-press the shutter or you can configure the AF/AE on the back to perform focus.

Found this today (on a different issue - to strengthen a usb cable)


But I reckon it would work on lenses too...?
