Panasonic Introduces LUMIX S Series Full-Frame Mirrorless Cameras

Panasonic has just introduced a new LUMIX S Series line of cameras -- its first full-frame Digital Single Lens Mirrorless cameras, with a 35mm full-frame CMOS sensor. These are focused on full-up professional photographers and videographers, with an emphasis on advanced picture quality and extensive creative control.

The S series is launching with two cameras and three lenses, with the cameras very clearly distinguished.

- The LUMIX S1R is designed for professional photographers. It has an astounding 47.3-megapixel full-frame CMOS sensor, plus High-Resolution mode for 187-MP photos.

It also has extensive video capabilities, as expected from Panasonic cameras. Both cameras shoot video to 4K 60p/50p.

- The LUMIX S1 is designed for hybrid use by professional videographers, combining advanced photo capabilities with a 24.2-megapixel full-frame CMOS sensor. It has more cinematic features, including support for MP4 HEVC and 4:2:2 10-bit 4K.

These new LUMIX S series cameras are a big step forward for Panasonic, moving from the smaller and lighter Micro Four Thirds G series to bigger, heavier, and more rugged full-frame cameras designed for professional use.

The S1R with its 47.3 MP sensor targets photographers. It's priced at $3699 (body only), or $4599 with the 24-105mm lens kit.

The S1 with the 24.2 MP sensor is a "hybrid" camera for more balanced use for video and photos. It's priced at $2499 (body only), or $3399 with the 24-105mm lens kit.

Three new lenses are available from Panasonic: The LUMIX S PRO 50mm F1.4 lens is priced at $2299.99, the LUMIX S PRO 70-200mm F4 O.I.S. is $1699.99, and the LUMIX S 24-105mm F4 MACRO O.I.S. is $1299.99.
