If anything at all, I would look for samples pushing the envelope. Check out the photos from their review of the camera, including many taken with the new 28-60mm F4-5.6 kit lens. This camera packs nearly every single feature Panasonic has released in a camera to date, into a robust professional-feeling body. The Panasonic S1 and Panasonic S1r have two exclusive focus modes. :), RubberWhy are you blatanly lying about the D810It doesn’t require mirror lockup to produce great image qualityAs you never had a Nikon FF camera , nor the D810 in particular , how would you know.I don’t think you have a camera at all, not even a Sony. I enjoy all this tech and the strives fwd, atm video is not my thing, just hoping the mirrorlerss brigade results in lower prices for us DSLR dinosoars. Really impressed with the choice of full-frame mirrorless available now, plus low-light or high-ISO ability is also on the improve.But I have a question re auto-focussing when using extenders. No experience with them, sorry. Wait for Canon. But by inference, doesn't what you say also mean there are many who will never buy anything else? The full frame mirrorless camera market has gotten crowded, and it's gotten crowded quickly. For certain types of photographers there is nothing better. I wonder if Panasonic would sell its sensors to others.

I've never been one who bought into the whole "patience is a virtue" baloney, but you and i are totally in the same boat. My qualified guess is that camera size is mainly about what people are used with. This camera is one of the largest and heaviest full-frame mirrorless cameras on the market today. Maybe they went out to get action shots and these were the only keepers. it had a very slow AF. Video on this camera is surely no slump either. In this video by Art of Photography, he gives us a first look at the testing of the new Panasonic Lumix S1 and S1R full-frame mirrorless cameras. Watch our full review to find out. The Canon EOS R6 doesn't quite live up to the full promise of its do-everything specs, but it's a great photographers' camera. We're talking about the here and now. The Panasonic Lumix DC-S5 is a full-frame mirrorless camera but in a body smaller than the Micro Four Thirds GH5. Current Panasonic shooters should consider switching if they have the budget to accompany the transition, especially current GH5 users. Sony's a7C is among the smallest full-frame mirrorless cameras you can buy, and in terms of core capability, not much has been sacrificed for the sake of compactness. Thanks, Lee -- either I or my text search may have been blind, earlier :). But despite those excellent controls, when it comes to autofocus, it's not all good news. Nobody offers true rangefinders digital or film that can be bought and are interchangeable new off the shelf. There is Sony for that. It's too big and heavy! With a DSLR it's difficult to judge focus manually, or to get a flat subject parallel to the sensor, or to judge d.o.f. They understand their place in the market, where their products sit vs the competition. The second link that you call full res and you say looks under-sharpened is what I experienced from using the embedded comparison in the article. Images captured are sharp across the frame with natural colors and rendering. We’ve chosen cameras that can take great photos and make it easy to get great looking video, rather than being the ones you’d choose as a committed videographer. I await further primes from Panasonic going forward in the hope that the market will support their efforts enough to continue developing the system. If you zoom in on his face it's not terribly sharp and with a 50mm at F4 it should be "tack sharp". The high contrast volume scenes look good as well. But as things stand, I'll probably stay with my 5DS, 5DMkiv, Canon lenses and tried and tested shooting methods, until the pro EOS-R gets launched. The Olympus M.Zuiko 100-400mm F5-6.3 IS offers an equivalent focal length range of 200-800mm, making it perfect for casual wildlife and motorsports photography. That's basically just sales tax. Body handling and size matter.
