It’s been a year since Panasonic first announced the Lumix S1 and Lumix S1R full-frame mirrorless camera in the market. Now, the company has launched the same cameras in the market, and we have full details about the same. The Lumix S1 and Lumix S1R are suitable for photographers and the videographers, as one is made for the photographic purpose and another for videography. The Lumix S1 comes with the 24.2 MP sensor and is suitable for the videography purpose. The Lumix S1R comes with a whopping 47.3MP sensor and is suitable for high-end photography purpose as it has more megapixels and can capture sharper images.
The Lumix S1 camera is priced at $2,499 without the lens and $3,999 with 24-105mm lens. Also, the Lumix S1R camera is priced at $3,699 without the lens and $4,599 with the 24-105mm lens. Both the cameras come with the L-mount to attach the lens. The L-Mount is licensed by Leica, and the Panasonic and Sigma are licensees. Not just the cameras, but the company has launched the three camera lenses for these devices.
The 50mm f/1.4 S Pro lens for $2,999/- is good for taking sharp, high-resolution images with the S1 camera. The 70-200mm f/4 S Pro for $1,699 for regular photography and videography and the 24-105mm f/4 Macro for $1,299 to take the Macro shots of the small objects without toggling any settings. As of now, the company has launched only these lenses. But by the end of 2019, Panasonic is planning to launch three more lenses for S1 and S1R mirrorless cameras. All of these lenses do not host the “Leica” branding on them as the Panasonic is manufacturing the lenses by themselves.
