I have been using it for two weeks in the Swiss mountains and have started posting  some of my experiences and photographs here (more will follow):

Aaron:Not a rumor, but a color enhancing tip for the GH4. I shot this with Portrait Profile and added and Arri Alexa SL LUT in Premiere CC. I immediately noticed how the colors were brought to life in a more realistic palette.
