I'm deep in Sonys and Canons but added the m4/3s for size/weight considerations. In a pack weighing as much as my 7Dii and 400DOii I can have the Gx7 or GH4 and 5 lenses. When I grab that pack I'm giving up BIFs kinda, because I've done some BIF work with the GH4--just not as easy as the 7Dii. I'm def. giving up low light performance sensor size wise but you know that going in-in return we get the DOF bonus from that sensor. My hope is that the OM-D M1 mark II when it gets here has made big strives in autotracking--that and the Olympus 300 F4. Will that happen? a BIF machine at that size and weight-I can only hope.
Here's another plus. I set up the GH4 yesterday timelapsing hoping to nab some lightening. I went into the basement on a project, soon heard the big rain coming down-me knowing the GH4 was on the dock with only a Walmart plastic bag draped over it. Attached was the 12-35mm Pana lens. Since both are weather sealed I didn't give it a second though. Once the storm was over and my project complete I retrieved the rig. The front element was covered in rain drops....let it air dry and all is good.
If you do get one check out the 4K Photo feature. I've discussed it here at POTN in the digiscoping thread. The GH4 has many tricks up the sleeve.

Are these posted pictures sharpened or in any way run through a photo software?

Sharpened yes of course. I think LR automatically sharpens to a degree. Now the first pic I think I posted up, the finch, is way way over sharpened. The Rhododendron bloom hardly at all and the crater shot minimal.
You wouldnt be the first to say I oversharpen; in fact a good friend told me I am overboard with the sharpening slider on my of my shots :(

Aren't you in the Fuji world?
Poof just added a Oly m5ii. I like it so much I'm hoping for the Oly m1ii, that and the 300 F4. My bet is that the m1ii will answer tracking at even beyond Sony's A6000 then the dslr world can start thinking dinosaurs and extinction :)
And as an aside I've shot little video with the GH4.

From this morning walking out of the hospital...I'd seen them at distance the last few mornings getting off work so brought the 40-150mm thinking I might get lucky, of course after the shot wishing I'd brought something way longer but my first 'view' of this beautiful Zorro :)

One thing I can say now about m4/3s is that this format is just plain fun:

The GH4 has become, with the Venus Macro Lens, my favorite field macro kit-

I just have concerns re low light weddings !! That is why at this time the 5D III and my remaining lenses stay as backup for the wife at weddings.

I can't resist the pull of a GH4 though :)

Answer to those concerns could be the Panasonic Leica DG SUMMILUX 25mm f1.4 (equiv of the EF 50mm f1.4), Olympus M.Zuiko 45mm f1.8 (tiny lens but 90mm full frame equiv.), and possibly also the Olympus M.Zuiko 75mm f1.8 (150mm full frame equiv).

I have all three and consider them outstanding performers. Olympus also makes a 25mm f1.8 that is smaller than the Pan/Leica and it is considered comparable to the Pan/Leica.

Can we add the Nocticron 1.2 in the fast lens category? I just shot with it. The craziest lens Panasonic ever made in my opinion.

Reckon so...

...Never even looked through that one. With no "real" camera stores left here, I just have to "drool" on the catalog pages and order what can be afforded.
