Upgrade from GH4 to GH5, is it worth it?

4 months 2 weeks ago #661368 by FelixLuchinsky
I am thinking to upgrade my camera Panasonic GH4, there is a price drop on Panasonic GH5. It is currently on sale for $ 1398 body only

I am wondering if anyone here did switch from GH4 to GH5, is it still worth getting in 2019?
Thanks for your feedback

G'day Felix

Upgrades are nearly always incremental movements and as such, from one year to the next year may not be all that great ~ but after 3 to 5 years, the difference is then probably worth it. It also comes down to your needs versus your wants stemming from the advertiser's brochures, along with your budget

While this might not be the answer you were looking for, it's the best I can offer at the moment :)

Hope this helps

I own a GH5 and wouldn't consider another camera.  Love this camera and highly recommend it.

What problem are you trying to solve, or what use case requires different equipment? If you can't identify a need other than, "because i want it," then you probably don't need it. Sounds to be like you aren't even sure what a GH5 offers (other than it's one more...)

That said, if you have the money and want it, then buy it. Stop over-thinking it.
