Conclusion from DPReview:

The GH5 II adds a fewer feature enhancements to one of the strongest stills/video cameras on the market. Autofocus is improved but is still a weak point for 24p video capture, taking the gloss of what’s otherwise a superlative video camera. Excellent image stabilization and a broad range of video support tools still make it one of the strongest options for 4K shooting under $3000.

Good for

4K capture in a range of circumstances

Not so good for

Run-and-gun shooting relying on autofocus
