    Panasonic have released an updated lens roadmap for their L-mount full-frame lenses. In addition to the three lenses that have already been announced today, Panasonic will launch 3 more new lenses in 2019 - a 24-70mm F2.8, 70-200mm F2.8 and 16-35mm F4 - plus 1.4x and 2x teleconverters. Then in 2020 they will add a super telephoto lens, 2 fixed focal length lenses and a macro lens to their L-mount range, bringing the total to 10. In a separate announcement at the launch of the Panasonic S1R and Panasonic S1 cameras, Sigma have revealed that they will release 14 new L-mount lenses by the end of 2019, plus a Canon EF/Sigma SA converter.

  • Panasonic S1R and S1 First Impressions
    on February 1, 2019 at 11:00 am

    The Panasonic S1R and Panasonic S1 are two new full-frame mirrorless cameras, offering 47 megapixels and 24 megapixels respectively and using the Leica L-mount. In development for the last 4 years, the Lumix S Series promises to offer “Full frame without compromise”. We were shown a very early prototype version of the S1R/S1 back in September 2018 by Panasonic. We weren't allowed to take any photos of the camera or presentation slides, such was the high level of secrecy at the time. Early prototype versions of the S1R and S1 were then displayed under glass at Photokina 2018, with a promised simultaneous launch date for both models of “early 2019”. Fast forward to 31st January 2019, and we've been able to shoot with a working version of the Lumix S1R and S1 at the Global press launch in Barcelona, Spain. We've updated our initial first impressions of the cameras and new lenses with some more detailed observations. So read on for our first impressions of the new […]
