Auto Focus Shoot Out With Lumix GH4, Fuji, Sony and Olympus
Auto focus shoot out with Lumix GH4, Fuji, Sony and Olympus. The boys from The Camera Store TV are at it again and doing another great review of several different cameras. As Chris Nichols points out, all the camera manufacturers are beating their chests with grandiose claims suggesting each of their newly released cameras are THE one to beat in auto focus capabilities.
The Camera Store TV puts the Lumix GH4, Olympus OM-D E-M1, Fuji XT-1, and Sony A6000 to the test. The Nikon D4S is the one they are all being compared to and none were able to beat it in all situations regarding autofocus. However, Chris Nichols does say at the end of the video that the Lumix GH4 is so close it’s a virtual tossup in the area of nearly instant, point to point AF. That’s an amazing claim, especially as he points out, the major difference in their prices.
One other thing to watch for in this video that Chris makes no reference to is the size of all the different systems. Notice how small the GH4 and Olympus cameras are with an equivalent 70-200mm F/2.8 lens. Fuji ‘s lens is a monster and isn’t anywhere close to the speed of an F/2.8. Sony’s lens is nearly as large as the Nikon with a 70-200mm F/2.8. The size difference between all the cameras and lenses compared to the GH4 and Olympus are staggering. Finally, you have the Nikon D4 with the 70-200mm F/2.8 which was still the best but not by far. It’s a different world out there and the mirrorless cameras have only just started to make things interesting. You can see more of what the GH4 is capable orby reviewing the my own Speeding Pooch Tests.
