Dating back to the Panasonic GH1, the GH line of cameras has been targeted at videographers while sporting rich feature sets generally found on more expensive professional video rigs. The Panasonic GH4 is the latest in this popular line and has just completed the first pass through our test lab.

We'll be bringing you a wealth of test results over time on the video front to see if this latest model stands up to its promise, but in the meantime we know there are many of you wondering how its still image quality fares against the Panasonic GH3 and to other current competitors.

You can view all of our initial lab test samples on our First Shots samples page, and also pit the GH4's image quality across the available ISO spectrum against the GH3 (or any other camera we've ever tested) in our Comparometer.

If you run across any interesting comparisons, please report them in the comments section below which helps us and other readers become better informed. [Beware though, as the Comparometer can be a bit habit-forming.]
