What? I've never heard a experienced photographer bash a camera like this. I've shot weddings, sporting events, and shot with Nick Nichols (best you look him up) and these guys always prove it's not the camera, it's the person shooting it. You toss out nonsense with your smugness. Do post up your website.
One look at it's images on Flicker contradict your wild claim. Scheech.

These prices looks good. I need a 4k camera for marching band recording. I already have A6000 which does good 1080.

What I am specially looking for is good continuous auto focus, is it comparable while recording a video with Sony?

Video quality is great for what you pay but autofocus for video is one of the weaker features of this camera. Other brands like Canon and Sony have more reliable AF than Panasonic.

This is a beginner or non photographer Camera. I am a pro photographer and I do not think this camera will have any use for anybody that is into photography. The process file is somewhat gimmick... don't get me started on the bad autofocusing issue. I bought one during the amazon price mistake ended up selling for close to what I paid for it.
Might as well get you started. Can you share your experience about the autofocus issue?

I'm used to using camera with good autofocusing it was easy for me to see the lack of focused ability the minute I touch this camera. My biggest disappointment wasn't even the autofocus... it was the lack of quality after you export the file to Lightroom or photoshop. It was low quality and hard to post processing with the bad color profile coming out of the camera.

I've had gx85 for over a year now. I don't own top of the line cameras so I cannot tell you how this compares to one in terms of autofocus. I mostly shoot still photos (portrait and landscapes). Do I think the autofocus is bad? In my humbled opinion, not at all. I actually find it quite excellent for my need. I have a Nikon d750 as my main (it's old, but it used to be known to have excellent autofocus), I did not notice any dramatic difference in terms of autofocus with gx85. It nails the focus all the time in good lights. The best part of this camera is the 5 axis image stabilization PLUS the dual lens image stabilization. The camera IS and the IS on the lens work together for deeper stabilization. In my opinion, this feature alone makes this camera an excellent choice. BUT, if you are shooting moving subjects (sports or Wilde life photography) this is not it. Bottom line, i think it's unfair to call this a bad camera. This is excellent camera, it's just that current top of the line cameras are better. If you are new to photography, I would start with this. It's more challenging to use, but challenges always makes you a better photographer in the end

True. But nowhere near this price. Still love my GX7 even with having a Sony Aii. This is a great deal for a good mirrorless kit.

Have to agree, unfortunately. There are better options
