  • S1 body + battery = 1kg weight

    G7 body + battery + 14-42mm + 15mm 1.7 + 25mm 1.7 + 42,5mm 1.7 = 1kg weight

    If you work alone with a backpack micro four thirds is the way to go. lenses and body are small and lightweight.

  • My short review of the Panasonic Lumix S1 and 50mm f1.4 and 24-105mm f4

  • V-Log firmware

  • $300 price drop (due to horrible sales)

    Panasonic management extremely delayed this first cut.

    Second cut time will depend on sales change (I expect almost no change), and can happen around late November/December and can reach another $500.

    In 2020 S1 price will match cheap Sony A7 offerings and will set around $999.

  • S1R Firmware Version 1.3 / S1 Firmware Version 1.3 Coming soon

    Expanded media compatibility

    Improved compatibility with Sigma interchangeable lenses and mount converter

    Ability to assign functions to the Fn buttons of Sigma L-Mount interchangeable lenses.
    The performance of Body I.S. (Image Stabilizer) when attaching a lens using the Sigma MC-21 mount converter has been enhanced by suppressing roll movement.

  • Be good if they included shutter angle option in Video Mode. (for old timers like me).

    Any word if S1 got highlight exposure like GH?

  • @alcomposer I'd prefer if they included shutter angle as well.

    Additional N. Driftwood content (ghosting tests) - seems that 1.3 is attending to several substantial shortcomings. What an interesting industry shift to be continually refining/improving post-release. Thanks Fuji?
