No news here, it seems. Canon and Sony have put out about a dozen cinema cameras since the EVA-1.

Remember the Panasonic Varicam S35 is even older than the EVA1, and it still has seen no new release to replace it. 

But then again, they're still seeing usage! I'm about to start this week on a popular tv series shooting this season with 3x Panasonic Varicam S35 cameras.

In my opinion, Panasonic makes the best cameras with the best IQ (especially video IQ) in the business. They are reliable, packed full of features, ergonomically nearly perfect, and just fantastic to

Basically an S1H with 120fps in 4k in a video-camera body (XLRs, internal NDs, etc). Has to be 20-24 megapixels to get 6k raw output or maybe even get it up to 8k raw output (36 megapixels?). 

Dear Panasonic, I would buy this L-mount, FF, 4K 120fps, EVA2 in a heartbeat. Signed, a former EVA1 owner that is getting by with two S1H bodies at the moment.

That's true. But it does seem those higher end models are less inclined to be a part of the spec race. Venice, C700, Arris, etc often can't match some of the spec-race cameras (8k, 6k, raw out, 120fps! ,etc), but just have superior IQ (which they do), so maybe the Varicam doesn't need to be updated in the same way as the EVA-1 does. But right now, the EVA-2 needs to get in the under $10k game with an L-Mount so Panasonic can start making money on lenses. And give S1/S1H owners more expansion options.

With that said, I think the EVA-2 needs to be feature-packed. Though i don't need more than 4k at the moment, I think the solidly just 4k cameras FX6/FX9/C70/C300 gives Panasonic an opportunity to leapfrog them in some areas. 

We'll see but looking forward to seeing it.

Since the Varicam S35 / LT has came out, all of Canon / Sony / ARRI / BMD / RED have released (multiple! Each) cinema cameras.

So yes, their refresh cycle is slower at the high end, but still, Panasonic is slipping behind.
