First Panasonic S1 and S1R reviews

Here are some new Panasonic S news:

First: You get a free battery and grip with the S1-S1R preorder at BHphoto (Click here).

Second: Photographyblog posted their full Panasonic S1R Review. The conclusion:

Panasonic’s first attempt at a 35mm full-frame mirrorless camera is an impressive one, offering a long list of mouth-watering features, superb image quality, and great handling. The S1R is definitely a serious contender to the Sony A7R III and Nikon Z7.

Fuji XG vs Sony-Nikon-Panasonic-Canon FF comparison. Fuji I will hate you forever if you don’t make this cam!

Fujirumors.com made these size comparisons between the Fuji XG prototype model and the current Full Frame mirrorless competition.

But this post is just an excuse for me to rant over Fuji’s decision to NOT produce the XG. Dpreview guessed that the reason why Fuji doesn’t want to make this camera is because it looks like the X-T3. But for me that’s EXCACTLY the reason why they have to do it:
– The X-T line is the most popular line
– The X-T also has the best usable camera design. Why not keep doing what’s successful?

Do it Fuji!
