    I have been testing my new GH4 over the last two weeks mainly with the Pana 35-100mm f2.8 lens. I have been photographing cars and people coming towards and moving away from the camera and last weekend photographed junior indoor basketball. In both situations the GH4 using Burst Mode M, 1 Area AF (NOT Tracking) and JPG capture with a fast card ran at 7 fps and delivered 95% of frames in sharp focus at the active AF area. In addition EVF blackout after each frame is much less than the GH3. Overall the GH4 delivers a big improvement over the GH3 in follow focus on sport/action/moving subjects. You can read more about it at the link on my Camera Ergonomics blog.
    Happy reading, Andrew

    Unfortunately, the brains of the typical DSLR buyer are made of concrete: impervious to termites.... and reason. ;)

    I must be atypical.
    I've had a few Kodak and Canon products.
    And I have had nearly every Nikon DSLR and AutoFocus lens and many primes as well.

    After getting a GH3, I lost my "NAS".
    My GH4 is an improvement in every.
