Exclamation Questions for Panasonic at Photokina this week?

While there is much expectation about what Photokina this week will bring for Olympus fans (see: http://www.fourthirds-user.com/forum...ad.php?t=14604) I am also meeting my friends from Panasonic. If you have any questions about Panasonic and Micro Four Thirds, in particular - post them here!

Re: Questions for Panasonic at Photokina this week?

My biggest questions are usually around AF performance. Will they be adding on-chip phase-detection AF to their cameras? Are there improvements to focus tracking, and/or better AF speed and accuracy with the older Olympus 4/3 lenses? Panasonic have typically devoted a lot of R&D and new features to video; do their new cameras have new features or improvements for still photography?

What's new from Panny? Anything that would make an Oly user switch camp?

My initial report on the GH5 and three new lenses is here:

They have also announced the G80 and G81, plus a new bridge camera (FZ2000).
