Panasonic FZ1000 Hands-On Field Test by TheCameraStoreTV.

I think the new Panasonic FZ-1000 is a hell of a camera and Chris from TheCameraStoreTV does agree with me. Interestingly he doesn’t believe the 1 inch sensor is the same of the Sony RX100M3

New 15mm f/1.7 lens review at ePhotozine: “It’s worthy of the Leica name”.

ePhotozine (Click here) posted the full Leica 15mm f/1.7 lens review and writes:

The Leica name is like a seal of quality for Panasonic’s Micro Four thirds lenses, and this lens lives up to the reputation in many ways. One surprising way that it doesn’t is with the price. Yes, it may be more expensive than the closest equivalent lenses, but it’s not the kind of price that would have your bank manager asking questions.

The lens gets “reocmmended” with 4/5 stars.

Small surprise: GH4 seems to focus slower in 4K recording mode (while it’s damn fast at 1080).

Our friend Frederick compared the GH4 and GH4 AF performance and discovered an interesting drawback of the GH4 in 4K mode:

I have tested the autofocus performance of the GH4 with the GH3 during video recording. This demanding test shows that the GH4 indeed does improve upon the GH3 in 1080p mode. In 4K mode, though, the autofocus is rather poor.
I tested using both the 12-35mm and 35-100mm f/2.8 lenses.

It’s the first time I hear about that “drawback”. Hope other readers will test this too and confirm (or not confirm) the slower af in 4k mode!
