    Kaboom, it's arrived!
    Sorry, no YouTube unboxing video or reading of spec list, just an initial impression whilst the battery is charging.
    I've come from 8-9 years of Fuji as my main cameras with some dabbling in 1" Sony and M4/3 Panasonic but have otherwise never owned a full frame mirrorless before.
    I had Nikon DSLR prior to Fuji for stills with a D7000 for filming...but things have moved on since 2010!
    First of all, it feels superb in the hand. In terms of size for handling and my use, just about perfect.
    Weight, perfect and I currently have the 20-60mm 'kit' lens attached I bought it with which will become my personal travel lens and my stills work wide angle.
    Build quality. Well all my old gear has now been sold but I'd say it's all a step up from Fuji and I had no complaints about that, but the build and finish are superb and the way the dials click and operate etc.
    Next up, some stills and video tests to get a feel for how it all works etc and that all important AF test..., but so far, it's all looking good!
  2. Thanks

    Maybe not in the UK as all I see on the CVP website is the free Sigma 45mm or free XLR1 MICROPHONE ADAPTER offer. So yeah maybe not outside EU.

    Neither does it seem to be available in Ireland (who are thankfully still in the EU 🤣), so it must be a continental Europe thing. But I guess you could try ordering from a continental seller if you're in Ireland or UK?

    In the UK there’s a main dealer S5 bundle for £2080 which includes 20-60mm lens, Sigma 45mm lens, extra battery and shooting grip. 
    Given that the kit lens is over £400 more on its own, the value of the extras in the bundle makes the S5 body price around £1100.
    This assumes that you want the two lenses, grip and battery of course. 
    But does put it at the same price level as the Canon RP. 
    How would everyone have reacted if the body only price had been this low?
    Seems to me that Panasonic really wants to kick start sales of this.

    I imagine at this point that he's relieved to be running any test that doesn't involve a thermometer, a fridge or an oven.
