Panasonic GH6 Verdict from ePHOTOzine:

If we were looking for a stills camera then there could be quite a bit of redundant technology here, but as soon as the video aspect becomes part of the equation then the whole concept and offering that the GH6 represents might just blow us away. The whole idea of shooting high quality, professional standard video is just an amazing new world for the photographer as more and more take up the mantle and become more videographers, for all sorts of reasons.

This is seriously good stuff, priced realistically and also, thanks to the internet, there are the means to meaningfully share the finished output.

This is not to say that there are no handling issues, and the placement of some dials and buttons can be unfortunate if our usual grip falls in the wrong places. It is, however, a learning curve and most things can be worked around with practice.
