<<<I did some Googling on the GH4 and whether it was for reviews or images, it's clear that Panasonic is a victim of its own success. Every search query resulted in reviews or images of the GH4 as a video camera first and foremost. Panasonic has so heavily emphasised the 4K capability, that the still camera feature has been lost in the noise generated by this one aspect. So if you don't see or hear much about the GH4 as a stills camera, I think it's pretty clear as to why. If you want information on the GH4, just check video forums, blogs and the like, there might be snippets about taking still shots. And it is clearly recognised as a 'revolutionary' camera, in the video world.
True enough, but I was satisfied with the Video from the GH3.
I bought my GH4 for better stills, especially for action shots and for use in poor light.
The fact that the GH4 has improved in every way is a real bonus for me as I mostly shoot 1080 P60 Video.
I also like only needing a camera mounted external mic and light weight TriPod.
That and a 12-35 Lumix lens makes for a pretty compact package,
the smallest one I care to own due to my large hands.
