I've been looking at what my next camera will be. I have no plans to sell any of my current cameras (Gx85, Gx8, G9) but expect to purchase a camera next specifically for video. My price range is $2K to $5K. I plan on waiting until the 6/8K generation of cameras in that price range appear. After hours and hours at looking at options I keep coming back to one solution: Gh6 and a couple of new lenses (PL8-18, and a 35-100 f2.8) VII). The G9 is all the stills camera I need (actually the Gx8 probably is that), and "it's the size" and DOF I need in what I video. The Gh series is for me the best "real video" camera option, and I will do a real cage, video monitor, and external recorder for when needed. Give the fact that not only did Panasonic grow its market share in 2019, but with Oly selling its camera division I see Pany being in the game with M43 for a while. Video is a different world where even $4 or 5K cameras are the "inexpensive ones" and thus the Gh6 if it is at $2K (I'm actually thinking $2500 if it is 8K, $2K if it is "only" 6K) with the great assortment of smaller lens is for me a deal.

The post by the Panasonic person on M43 rumors is pretty indicative of how M43 fits into Pany's video centrist world and heck @ 70, a Gh6 would last me "a life time":)
