Many readers told me that their Gh4 preorder has now been shipped via Amazon US (Click here). And the camera is still marked as in Stock at Amazon (via Cameta), BHphoto (Click here), Digitalrev (Click here) and Cameta (Click here). For now I have no reports from European or Asian stores having the camera in Stock. And here are the first new owner reports:

The EVF is so very nice. It’s OLED and really sharp. it doesn’t have the distortion in the corners like the GH3 did. At least I feel it didnt. I did do a rolling shutter test and it’s better. I scratched the surface and shared a few of the features I like. Is the GH4 worth upgrading to from a GH3? I think so. The internal 4K alone is such a big deal and image is very good.

All of the issues that I had with the GH3 have largely been resolved with this new camera, most notably the terrible LCD and LVF that desperately needed updating. Overall I definitely recommend this camera if you’re doing any sort of narrative, documentary, or small broadcast project that requires an extremely high quality image with a small footprint, not to mention the fact that you can also get some incredible stills on this camera makes it even more versatile as well.
