    Flicking through the revamped Amateur Photographer magazine here in the uk, they have a article about the above camera about to be launched in the uk in mid july.
    It includes a 4K video function - a first for a bridge camera plus a 20.1 million pixel, 1in size imaging sensor
    It also allows the user to extract an 8 million pixel still image from the video footage.
    Lens is a Leica DC vario zoom lens 25mm to 400mm f2.8
    Panasonic "say the fast lens and 1" sensor allow the user to create a beautiful bokeh" It has a 2.35 million dot OLED electronic viewfinder and a 921,000 dot LCD screen.
    AF is contrast autofocus with DFD tech.

    Price on release in the expensive UK market is circa £749.

    Seemingly GH4 technology is already filtering down the range?

    Would be interested in forum members views

    Apologies if this is already detailed on the forum elsewhere, although a quick search brought nothing up.

    It does not have GHx's codec or bitrates.
