Panasonic announces new Ultra High Definition "4K" DMC-G7 - $799.99!

Panasonic does it again - the world's first interchangeable lens 4K camera below $800 with a viewfinder and mic jack. They've also added the GH4's ultra-fast "depth from de-focus" (DFD) autofocus system (available for pre-order from Amazon and Adorama).  Here's the promo video:

The viewfinder and standard 3.5mm mic jack make this a better choice for entry-level 4K video than either the Samsung NX500 or the 1080p-only Sony A6000.

And Canon shooters would have to spend thousands of dollars more for 4K.

With Kipon's fast autofocusing Canon EF to micro 4/3 adapter ($309 at Adorama or $339 on eBay), this would be a perfect upgrade camera for Canon 1080p DSLR shooters who want to make the jump to 4K.

Here's the press release.

And here's some sample footage (please watch at 2160p):

Not bad for an $800 camera.
