They seem to be concerned about:
- potential focus hunting, so you may have to use manual focus or turn off autofocus like the LX100
- the new dual stabilization does not work for video

Panasonic GX8

I like my GX7 and LX100 a lot. That said, I may be in trouble. The controls on the LX100 fit my "old school" attitude of shutter speed and aperture control. 43 Rumors says that next week we will...

Waiting until July is not a problem! I'm in the middle of "moving" out of full sized motorhome with a decade's collection of stuff in it into a more nimble, much shorter version that will let us get...

Since I'm not likely to ever find my way to China, I have to say I can't wait for more of your video. In fact, I'm not sure I care what camera you are using. Keep shooting!

It is amusing, at least to me, that there is such a difference between those that need for a scientific, or accurate, look and those that need an artistic, or altered, look to video.

Above it was mentioned that the 2015 4K TVs will play from a USB HDD. WD makes one with a SD card reader built in. Do you see any reason why it would not work as a 4K media source for newer 4K...

Truth is if I were buying a camera right now for what you say you want it for, it is likely it would be the RX10ii.

I came very close to buying a RX10 when I was looking for a "wildlife" system. Instead, I bought a GX7 and Lumix 100-300. The RX10 still has my interest, especially now that it is the "ii" with 4K....

I think Olympus makes a a M43 75-300 and a doubler for it. It might work on the Panny 100-300 too.

Joe,

I'm surprised that you don't have the FZ1000 for that. It has greater zoom and only looses a single stop at full tele. What do you see is the key appeal of the RX10II over the FZ1000.

Nice shot! Very nice in fact!

A few stills like that in a frame on the wall may well demonstrate one of the best benefits of 4K shooting.

Ken,

Thanks for your advice. I'm not really waiting for a specific technology. I'm edging into an odd time zone where if the TV lasts ten years it might be my last! The one I'm replacing is a...

Thanks. It was the Samsungs at Costco that caught my eye and motivated me to ask this question. There were two 55" models side by side with different model numbers pretty close to $1100. I...

Thanks. I think I'm reading that in the middle of all those part a 6-core Mac is needed. That is not a solution I will pursue. I rather spend that money of cameras!

Is there a short list of 4K TVs to want?

I'm overwhelmed by the number of choices. I'm pretty sure many won't let me put my 4K videos from my LX100 on a thumb drive or USB hard drive and have them play well.

I have room for a 55". Do...
