In addition to announcing the compact Lumix S5 full-frame mirrorless camera and promising feature firmware updates for the entire S series cameras, Panasonic has also unveiled four L-mount prime lenses and one telephoto zoom lens.

More specifically, these lenses are:

  • 24mm F1.8 — Coming near future
  • 35mm F1.8 — Coming near future
  • 50mm F1.8 — Coming near future
  • 85mm F1.8 — Coming Nov
  • 70–300mm F4.5–5.6 — Coming near future

Other than the 85mm prime that’s confirmed to drop this Nov, the other four lenses are coming in the ‘near future’.

What’s nice about the prime lenses is that they’re all the same size as the 85mm prime, which Panasonic says is ‘compact’. Versus their F1.4 siblings, this size reduction is somewhat expected. And of course, we expect their prices to be more wallet-friendly as well.

With these additions, the number of Lumix S series lenses will increase to 12. Panasonic is also working on another large-aperture wide-angle zoom lens but it’s unclear when that’d be ready.
