Panasonic Lumix FZ1000 Autofocus


The FZ1000 has a contrast-based AF system with 49 AF areas. It supports eye as well as face detection.


The FZ1000 uses the same defocus DFD technology as the Panasonic GH4, which profiles the out-of-focus characteristics of the lens to establish where the focus is. This lets the FZ1000 get close to the correct point of focus quickly, before using traditional contrast-based method to fine-tune.


The autofocus is quite fast, even in fairly low light levels. The FZ1000 has good focusing assistance for manual focusing including peaking, and the ring on the lens barrel can be configured to adjust focus rather than zoom.
