Same here. I preordered early because these high-end m4/3 products always seem to have supply issues the first several months (possibly artificially). There are a lot of events this summer that I want to shoot video for.
I received my full frame VG900 camcorder in early November of 2012 and that is the worst time of the year here in NJ to get a camera for shooting outdoor video so if I get my GH4 soon it will be the best time of the year instead. I pre-ordered it at 5AM on March 10 with B&H so I should be getting one from their first shipment.

I have been testing out the GH4 in Budapest and made this short film over the past few days. It’s a mix of 4K footage, hyperlapse and time-lapse. The high speed shot of the pigeons is shot at 1080 96fps.

I will update more details about the shoot and my thoughts on the camera soon. For more info see - the-delivery-men.com

My UPS guy just dropped my GH4 off so I now have the battery on charge. Here is a photo with Voigtländer Nokton 25mm f/0.95 and Rode Stereo VideoMic.

4K UHD 2160p screen capture from my GH4 today

We had up to 6" of rain last night and there was flooding in my area so I shot some 4K UHD 2160p videos that are good enough to get some 8mp still shots off the screen captures for web use.

that is sharp, but there is also a lot of blockiness in the water, on that pan shot... i suspect that youtube compression is killing it... you did upload raw footage right out of the camera?

thx for the post.

Yes it was straight off the 128GB SDXC card but youtube compression does stuff like that.

4K UHD 2160p close up of a Bee on a Dandelion with GH4 at close focus with 15mm F2.8 Sigma full frame fisheye lens @F5.6 that I normally use with my full frame Sony VG900 camcorder. Update , I uploaded the 4K video to Vimeo Plus so the Original .MOV file (3840x2160 / 103MB is available for download.

The SMC Pentax-FA 50mm F1.4 and SMC Pentax-M* 300mm F4 compared very well to the Voigtländer Nokton 25mm f/0.95 @ F2.8 that is the sharpest lens ever tested at LensTip.com .
"The resolution test of the Leica DG Nocticron 42.5 mm f/1.2 Asph. P.O.I.S. was based on RAW files from the Olympus E-PL1. In the case of that body the highest results, reached by the best fixed focus lenses, amount to about 80 lpmm (and the record value of 82.6 lpmm belongs to the Voigtlander 0.95/25, with the Olympus 1.8/75 not far behind).The decency level is set near 44-45 lpmm. "
