@Marcin Golynski I was considering getting the P4 but I am now interested in seeing if this could be used instead for commercial purposes and so would be very interested in your feedback once you get it and have had a chance to test it out.

Here is a question I have about what appears to be a plastic dome around the camera. It occurred to me that lens flare or at the least light reflection/refraction  in sunny conditions would be unavoidable. Let me know if this is a problem.

Putting aside the old adage that "you can't tell a book by its cover" for a minute, I can't help but wonder.  Assuming it can or soon will, handle all the high end software and will be as capable as P4, it strikes me that in commercial use on a high paying assignment that showing up with this guy attached to your belt, or in some other small carrier might not instill confidence in the customer.  Even if it is every bit as capable.  As it happens, I received my P4 on Monday and Mavic was announced on Wednesday.  So far I'm still comfortable with my choice (time will tell).

@Ed O'Grady the same thought did cross my mind and the larger P4 should be able to handle windy conditions better. It was also mentioned in one of the reviews that the FOV of the camera is narrower on the Mavic but I am not sure yet if this is a good a bad thing. I am still leaning towards getting one but will hold off for awhile as I am sure in the next few weeks we will see plenty of reviews and comparisons with the P4 and other drones.

Together with DJI Goggles that will be out soon and Mavic with its new OcuSync transmission system offering low latency and slightly narrower FOV, I would imagine DJI aims to capture a fair share of the currently growing racing drone market. Mavic may be focused for the masses while at the same time quite appealing for those who do FPV flying rather than filming.
