Just after the brand new L-Mount announcement, a collaboration between Panasonic, Leica and Sigma (post here), we bring you all the latest news from Panasonic.

Panasonic LUMIX S Series – Two Full Frame Mirrorless Cameras

The new Panasonic LUMIX S Series will feature two cameras; the Lumix S1R and the LUMIX S1. Both will be capable of 4K 60p video however we do not know whether this is in 8-bit or 10-bit yet. They have differing sized sensors with the S1 seeming to be more geared towards video.

These are the key features of the Panasonic LUMIX S1R and S1 taken from the press release:

  • Lumix S1R full frame 47MP sensor.
  • Lumix S1 full frame 24MP sensor.
  • Both cameras will be capable or recording 4K in 50p/60p.
  • Both cameras will use the newly announced L-Mount.
  • New Dual I.S image stabilization works with both sensor and lens stabilization.
  • Dual memory card slots for XQD cards and SD cards.
  • 3-axis tiltable LCD screen.

Three New L-Mount Lenses Announced

Three lenses will be available for the new Panasonic LUMIX S Series, beginning with a 50mm F/1.4, a 24-105mm and a 70-200mm. It has been announced that 10 lenses will be in this range by 2020.

The new L-mount collaboration between Panasonic, Leica and Sigma now means that a whole new range of lenses are available for the S series.

World’s Fastest Constant F/1.7 Wide Angle Zoom Lens for Micro Four Thirds Mount

Panasonic have also announced a new lens for the micro four thirds range; the Leica DG Vario-Summilux 10-25mm F/1.7. “This would be the equivalent of five fast prime lenses in one.” They said that it would replace a 20mm, 24mm, 28mm, a 35mm, and a 50mm lens in one due to the quality of the lens.

Panasonic don’t show any sign of stopping the innovation, with a promise of 8K sensors, lenses and engines to come in 2020.
