We just got the new GH5 but we can already tell you one feature the GH6 will definitely have: In a newly posted interview at DC.watch Panasonic once again confirmed they plan to launch a MFT camera with 8K by 2020.

To achieve that First prototypes will be unveiled and tested in 2018 (Source Nikkan). And Panasonic will once again develop image sensors after freezing such operations for the last few years, aiming for applications including 8K ultrahigh-definition technology (Source Nikkei).

In future photographers may record videos instead of single photos. With 8K every single image has a native 33MP resolution!
