I'm presuming the kit lens in those prices is the 24-105mm f4

If its £700 in the kit that means its probably £850-900 as a separate item.

Considering that is a £4K saving over the Leica 24-90mm (which is f4 at the long end anyway) I think that might well find its way onto more than a few Leica SLs.

Including mine.

Fascinated to see what Sigma are going to bring to this and when.

I might be interested, they are saying its DFD auto focus, which I doubt will be good for video. If it has internal 10 bit though, that would be interesting. 

I just assumed that it would be at least as good for video as the GH5.  If it didn't have 10-bit then I'd be stunned.

The problem is Panasonic said many times that S1/S1R are for photographers with some high end video capacity. So I hope we will have 10 bits and LOG internally. Without that S1/S1R will look like mirrorless 1DX Mark II for video (with better codec thoug but no DPAF). I have waited so far for S1 and I hope I will not be disapointed. After all Panasonic said S1/S1R will be "without compromise". Wait and see!

Launch is almost here, Full Frame with 4K 60p, maybe 5K, many Video options, Auto focus is still a mystery...

Leaked specs suggests a very good camera, with somewhat hefty price tag.

But very good chances to be a dud because Panasonic stubbornly sticks to DFD for AF (like they refused for years to implement IBIS).

I hope so, though I can see them just thinking full frame and 4k 60p with external 10 bit is good enough. Considering no other camera has those specs. Who knows though. 

If it has internal 10bit 422, that might mean the price of the GH5 and GH5S will drop, which would be good since I am considering buying one again. Here's hoping to that ?
