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.

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!
