Panasonic GH5 Officially Announced at CES 2017

Panasonic gave us a first glimpse of their long-awaited camera, GH5, at Photokina 2016, but the Japanese company didn’t share a lot of specs back then. Earlier today at CES in Las Vegas, Panasonic told us everything we need to know about the upcoming mirrorless camera, which is available for preorder right now and is expected to ship in March.
