In Topic: Going from DX - 4/3s - FX - Compact, My Digital De-Evolution

When I moved from a Nikon D7000 to a Panasonic GH4 it wasn't a downgrade. It was an upgrade in video capability, and Panasonic lenses are at least equivalent to Nikon glass. The only thing I miss is the versatility of the Tokina 10-17 fisheye, but the 8mm is a good substitute. As for stills, they are publishable, as are 4k frame grabs.

The smaller size of the system is another benefit, but not the prime one.

With extreme wide angles lenses, hyperfocal distance ranges 1/3 in front and 2/3 behind the focal point.  At f8 and smaller, focus on your fin and you'll lose focus only when the fish kisses your port.  Divers way in the distance may be a bit soft, but viewers will discount that.  On the GH4, that holds true for the 8mm fisheye and the 7-14mm rectilinear lenses.

Panasonic 7-14 works great. The GH4 body lacks image stabilization, so it pays to use Panasoic lenses, which have it.

A 5k monitor can't be far behind.
