Share

Tomorrow (Feb 1) at 11:00am you should follow L-rumors.com live-blogging if you are interested to learn everything there is to know about the new Panasonic S Full Frame mirrorless competition. Below you can find the specs and images leaked so far. But here are my quick considerations:

PROS in  (base on pure leaked tech specs)
– Dual IS seems to be more effective than the Sony IS
– Has 4k60p
– superb 5.76 million dot EVF (actually made by Sony!)
– three way LCD
– better weatherproofing and solid build quality

CONS in  (base on pure leaked tech specs)
– Expensive!!!
– no fast zooms at start
– Big lenses!
– heavy cameras compared to Sony
– no phase detection autofocus doesn’t promise Sony alike performance
– did I say it’s damn expensive? :)
