Strong speculations about the new Panasonic S5 Mark II being released at Cp+ and having the new phase detection autofocus system

On the web I see many speculating with a release of the new Panasonic S5II ate the CES show. It’s also said it will be Panasonic’s first S camera with phase detection AF (maybe even Lidar!). So let’s start with the facts:

  1. Yes, Panasonic held a big secret meeting in Tokyo with many famous youtubers and reviewers. So obviously something big is coming soon.
  2. Panasonic has a scheduled CES press conference on January 4th. But so far there is no hint or teaser about some camera related announcement.

And now to my speculation:

  • I do believe the S5II will be the next new camera to be announced by Panasonic.
  • I am not sure if it’s coming at the CES show but the fac they fahd that big Tokyo meeting surely suggests there is something coming soon
  • While I am certain they will have a new autofocus system I am not sure if this means they will implement the new LIDAR tech. It might be the “Normal” phase detection AF

Anyway, let’s see what’s going to happen on Jan 4th!
