As I write this article not only are Panasonic announcing the Panasonic GH5 II they also announce the GH6.
Note : One upside is the GH5 II has a full size HDMI socket
Why would any company announce a better model coming out in 2021 and bring out a slightly upgraded model in the same year…!
My thoughts are that Panasonic are in panic mode after the uptake of the full frame S5. Many of us had decided the micro four thirds models had come to the end of the line and bought into the full frame S5.
I am not sure the GH5 II will have the same uptake due to lack of any significant new features and lets be honest most of us were waiting for the GH6.
The GH6 looks like it will not be the camera we had hoped for not having a 6K chipset but rather a new 5.7K 10bit 50p (24MP) sensor instead.
With specs of 4K 10bit 120 FPS with sound is a rather tasty addition. The Panasonic GH6 will be priced about $2500.
