So... who has the GH5!? Thoughts?

Ironically, the LCD screen on my GH4 went out mid Danny Trejo interview yesterday(only a mild heart attack, fortunately footage turned out great), and on top of a few other issues, I decided it was time to upgrade. I was fortunate to pick up a GH5 and my initial thoughts are that its incredible...

I figured us new GH5 owners could share our thoughts, criticisms, even clips of what we shoot with it. I'm taking it on a test run tonight with a concert that will be relatively low light and will follow up with my thoughts, and maybe some footage!

What do y'all think about the GH5?!

Here is something I shot last night, still getting used to the camera, but won't take long as I've got the GH4 memorized.

There has been many reports of the continuous AF while shooting video being very bad. What did you think of it, John? I understand that its not the only thing to look at when deciding to buy the GH5 but I was just wondering if you noticed the same issue.

Oh, just saw your response! Honestly, when filming an interview on tripod, I've found the continuous AF extremely helpful. Especially when the subject moves around, or bobs their head back and forth. It follows decently. That said, I would never really consider using it in other circumstances. I prefer to have manual control over my focus.
