Panasonic S1R

  • 47MP
  • L-mount
  • 4k60p
  • Dual IS (in body stabilization and in lens stabilization)
  • Contrast AF (DFD technology)

  • Deep learning AI

As we reported here, the first S lenses will be a 50mm f/1.4, a 24-105mm f/4.0, and a 70-200mm f/2.8. The specifications certainly aren't far off from what Nikon, Canon and Olympus have released so far but the price points look quite attractive if true. Let's see if anything really gets announced towards the end of the week!
