Panasonic and DJI are jointly testing a new LIDAR based focusing method?

CameraBeta reports:

It looks like Panasonic and DJI are jointly testing a new focusing method. The new system is said to utilize the LiDAR focus technology released with the Ronin 4D. If this technology can be introduced to Panasonic’s mirrorless camera, we can expect a significant improvement in video shooting. It is currently undergoing in-house testing and will be available in the near future.

If Panasonic manages to fix their autofocus issues we can really look forward to get some great cameras!
