Online photography communities and YouTube have been buzzing about the GH5’s potential autofocus issues. Apparently Panasonic caught wind of it and they’ve released a statement via PhotoJoseph a “Lumix Luminary” (sponsored photographer). The statement is basically settings recommendations with a hint that they may do some sort of firmware update. Here’s what they had to say:

“We recommend to select the 1-area AF in 30p or 60p frame rate for more comfortable Auto Focus speed. When you select 24p, 1-area AF is recommended.

If you are still experiencing slower than desired AF, Panasonic suggests to override the AF by pressing the shutter button halfway down.

Panasonic pledges to further improve the AF quality.”
