Panasonic S1-S1R rumors and specs roundup!

We still know little about the new Panasonic S1 and S1R cameras. The facts we know can be seen on the image on top and below:

But there are also some rumored new specs that might be true:

Panasonic S1-S1R rumors:
Panasonic might announce more S1-S1R specs in January (article here).
Rumored price: $4,500 (article here).
Panasonic S1 and S1R camera might output RAW video? (article here).
List of new S1-S1R features “under consideration” (article here).
The Panasonic 24-105mm and 70-200mm have a constant f/4.0 aperture (article here).
Panasonic will not make an MFT to L-mount adapter (article here).

These are some stunning new images of the Nikon 58mm f/0,95 Z lens.

Oh boy! GearHeads like us will  go crazy looking at these brand new images of the Nikon 58mm f/0,95 Z lens. And thanks to Nikon photographer Yusuf Kathawala for the first time we can see this lens mounted on the Nikon Z camera. And I have to say that this lens looks less big than I expected.

This image in particular should help to give you an idea:

On the left you see the 58mm lens and on the right the 105mm f/1.4 F-mount lens.

I know it’s still a big lens. But maybe not as crazy big as we all expected. Here are some more images:


Now let’s hope the original $6,000 rumored price tag is wrong and the lens will cost half of that. If not I will have to sell a kidney :)

These could be the first leaked images of the new SUPERHEAVY Olympus E-M1X :)

If these images are legit than get ready for a first supersized MFT camera! The new E-M1X is huge and solid like a tank. I still cannot figure out if this makes sense or not…
