I bought a gh4/speedbooster setup this month, knowing the gh5 is coming next year.
After shooting with the gh4 (which is very impressive) THEN seeing the recent price drop on it, and realizing my purchases qualify for the extended holiday refund, I'm strongly considering returning it while I can. Not that I don't like the camera, but because I feel this would be my only chance for a while to make a decision on the right camera/investment for me.
The gh4 is awesome, Panasonic has me pretty hooked. With the gh5 coming with a little 4k slow motion and 10 bit 422 I feel interested, however I'm a bit sad about the weak iso performance compared to Sony's a7sii. I don't expect much improvement with the gh5 in that area, and I know I should be more professional/prepared with my shots by bringing proper lighting. I do like to shoot fairly dark scenes with minimal lighting and I feel like an a7sii can shine in that area (get it?
) but other than that Sony hasn't really impressed me.
If I return my gh4 and go for the gh5, should I return the metabones xl as well, in case the crop/compatibility changes?
Are Sony's low light capabilities realistic/usable?
The price for a gh5/speedbooster would be about the same as an a7sii. This whole thing is driving me crazy. I know I'm over thinking this and should just grab a camera and shoot but I don't want it to bug me later down the road. If you made it this far, I thank you for taking the time to read and witness my meltdown
