    This same thing must be made as firmware update for all m43 lenses. Not sure if it'll work perfect, but at least it'll be better.

  • Shure, i hope this for all owner of GH line cameras.

  • The linear function has it's own set of issues. I do lots of filming at long distances and in linear mode regardless of rotation range selected, it is almost unmanageable out toward infinity focus. You simply can't control it finely enough to hit critical focus. The non-linear mode allows ultra fine adjustment when out closer to infinity focus and is much more useful for a lot of the wildlife and landscape work I tend to do most often. With a focus ring clutch like the new 50mm it might be more useful but on the 24-105, I found it to be much worse than than the non-linear mode I've become accustom to and actually prefer.

    Cheers, Pete

  • "Improved AF performance : [AF-ON: Near Shift] and [AF-ON: Far Shift] functions have been added. [AF-ON: Near Shift] preferably focuses on a subject nearby while [AF-ON: Far Shift] preferably focuses on a subject far away."

    I wonder if this Panasonics attempt to try and stop the "hunting" that happens with their existing CAF mode. So when the camera is set to only focus on close by subjects it won't then attempt to focus shift onto the background like it does at present.
