most likely the gh5 will be the one to go.
Poor Af, being the main reason.
if I did doc type vids or , corporate , interviews etc where Focus is set it then i'd stick with gh5 , it really is a much better video camera than Fuji xt3 or sony a73 or a7s2 (in my opinion of course) , for that sort of work..
as far as low light , with the speedbooster I get equivalent to apsc capabilities up to about iso 3200.. then yeah the apsc pulls ahead as far as noise and color shifts..
but as far as portraits go..
im finding the Fuji xt3 and and xh1 to be just as capable as the sony a73 I have.
Honestly i'm shocked at how much improved the xh1 is from when I last owned one... the face detect accuracy and consistency has certainly improved by a lot and i'll say is as good as the xt3 in good to decent lighting., where as the xt3 will still pick up in poor light..
the xt3 eye aF is still a step or 2 behind sony's in my opinion .. but I think i'm talking little baby steps .. Fuji's eye AF is right there nipping at sony's heels, this is for the the type of use I need
so honestly , I have both cameras sitting on the shelf.. I just prefer to used the Fuji , expecially with their newer now usable eye af. for portraits.
As far as lenses go.. there's a couple of lenses id like to see ,, but for the most part Fuji has what I need.
1.8 zooms for a true 2.8 FF experience? .. well I don't know , the sigma via fringer adapter works really well.. even in video AF does a very good job, I was seriously impressed last night, and that was in poor lighting with 2 huge finger prints ton the front that I didn't see till after the shoot...
its a heavy combo though,, i'm fine with that for paid work or special projects where I want a certain look, so i'll use it for the conveneice of fast and zoom..
but Fuji has the 2.8 zooms , and a lot of 1.4 primes that would have given me the same look and be lighter.. so its a combo I will probably step away from.
in any case .. back to video.. yes the a7s3 should be a great camera.
I have hopes for the xh2. though I dont know that Fuji will do what I hope for.
I think they should focus on making the xh2 more video friendly.. as much as I love the dials on the xt3 and x100f and would hate to see them go in the future .. I think they are not ideal for video. .. more customizeable buttons is what i'd like to see.. and improved IBIS of course..and keep the size and ergos as it is.
I hope sony is following in Panasonics foots steps for the a7s3 and steps away from the a73/r3 type body..let all that stuff in their have some space to breathe and we should see some amazing FF 10 bit 422 at 4k 60 with no over heating issues
I think Panasonic was wise in doing so for there latest announced ff camera.
