Panasonic provides new prime lens, zoom lens to S sequence L-mount lens roadmap: Digital Images Assessment


Following the announcement of its forthcoming full-frame S5 II and S5 IIX cameras and Lumix S 14–28mm F4–5.6 Macro lens, Panasonic has up to date its lens roadmap to incorporate two new L-mount S sequence lenses: one prime lens and one zoom lens.

Primarily based on the brand new roadmap, embedded beneath, it seems the 2 new L-mount S sequence lenses shall be a 100mm macro lens and a zoom lens with a variety of roughly 28–200mm, though the precise vary may change between now and launch.

Assuming these estimations maintain true, that may make the 100mm Macro lens the corporate’s first macro prime and longest S sequence prime lens to this point. Till now, the one macros in Panasonic’s L-mount lineup are zooms: the Lumix S 14–28mm F4–5.6 Macro, 24–105mm F4 Macro OIS and 70–300mm F4.5–5.6 Macro OIS.

Should you have a look at the position of the 28–200mm zoom lens within the chart, it seems as if will probably be a variable-aperture lens (the entire fixed aperture lenses are listed beneath the primes and the variable aperture lenses are listed on the backside). Considering different full-frame lenses on this zoom vary, it’s doable the lens could possibly be an F2.8–5.6 or or an F3.5–5.6.

It’s doable these lenses may change or be dropped totally from the lens roadmap going ahead, however because it stands, we will anticipate at the very least another prime and another zoom lens for Panasonic’s S sequence L-mount lineup sooner or later, each of which fill areas within the lineup that don’t at the moment exist.
