Panasonic has revealed a pair of full-frame L-Mount mirrorless cameras, the 24-megapixel S1R, and 47-megapixel Lumix S1. They have built-in image stabilization, high-resolution EVF, and double slots for SD and XQD cards. Both models are scheduled to arrive next year in the market. Panasonic has partnered with Sigma and Leica, and it will be using Leica’s existing full-frame-L mount SL system. It has been considered a practical move as Panasonic and Leica have worked together in the past. Leica launched its first SL camera in 2015. It has nearly a dozen SL lenses and adapters, and the mount is compatible with its APS-C TL lenses, too.
Leica lenses are already available, but those are too costly. Panasonic announced a few of its own, including a 24-70mm, 70-200mm, and a 50mm f/1.4 prime. Sigma also revealed that it will develop lenses for the system, including a line of its highly-rated art lenses. Panasonic has created high- and medium-resolution cameras to take on Sony’s A7R III and A7 III, respectively. The S1 and S1R cameras will be more efficient with 4K 60fps, 10-bit 4:2:2 video the S1 and S1R cameras for photography and video. It is noteworthy that Canon and Nikon are also launching their cameras next month. The launching date for the new models of Panasonic hasn’t yet mentioned.
