My take right now: On paper these look like very good releases. We don't yet know how well they autofocus and their frame rates in AF-C won't make pro sports shooters happy. The 4k/60p internally is cropped,sorry. IMHO they will certainly appeal to some hybrid shooters. Glad to hear Sigma will make more affordable lenses in L- mount as well as make lens mount converters for their present lenses to L-mount. Sony, Nikon and Canon have some areas they must address, match or surpass or they will lose some new FF mirrorless buyers. Not so sure folks will be switching from their current more complete fullframe mirrorless systems, but Panasonic has raised the bar and raised the stakes here in a few key features. Well Done Panasonic ! I will be patiently waiting for real-world tests by real independent shooters, not paid influencers. Cheers

Yes the lack of really competitively fast frame rates in stills: 9fps only in AF-S; 6fps only in AF-C says that Pansasonic's sensor and processor aren't as advanced in this area as some others on the market, especially the exclusive stacked front-illuminated sensor and processor in the Sony A9 which can do 20fps in AF-C with no viewfinder blackouts.

But still a competent release IMHO.
