Will let everyone know how it works out when I get it. Couple of months to wait yet !!! My interest of course is as a fixed full stage camera at UHD60P to crop into in editing and create what I would get from several camera multicam. I can do this with the FDR-AX1 but the image at high gain just does not stand up to the crop to my satisfaction. Focusing is also difficult as the FDR-AX1 does not have touch focus to set well.

For me the main features of the GH5 I want are UHD60P, remote WIFI control with touch focus etc. Bonus if I get a Shogun Inferno is 10 bit UHD 60P that may also give me a better starting point for cropping etc. Will still do closeups with real camcorders but they will be less critical if the main show I can get from one camera.

Goal is to sit down rather than stand up 2 hours for the show now my wife and I are getting older and I feel UHD may solve this issue for us.
