Yannick:Just received the Panasonic G7 and wanted to share my first little test with a vintage lens.
The quality in 4K is stunning even on an HD display. There is quite some latitude for color grading. Really like the ergonomics of the camera. Nice improvement from the G6.

Andrea:Just want to share this video -just published- shot on the GH4 in 4k (some in 96fps) and Gopro in the beautiful scenario of the Elba Island, Tuscany, Italy:
I only used the GH4 with the great Lumix 20mm 1.7 (wanted to stay super light) and a fader ND filter. Great combo for travel.

Daniel:I recently produced some tests for printing very large prints from a Lumix LX100, Lumix GH4 and the Nikon D800. I’m fortunate to have the HP Z3200 printer that I could make these tests on. I know many of your readers don’t have a printer that can go so large and sending them out can be expensive. I decided to take on the costs so others don’ t have to. This test will be of interest for those wanting to know how big you can really go with the MFT cameras.
