Summary

Overall, the S5 looks like an interesting addition to Panasonic's S-series. Its launch price makes it a much more direct competitor to the likes of the Nikon Z6 and Sony a7 III, though it inevitably initially looks expensive next to these cameras (and even the better specced S1) given they've been on the market for more than 18 months and have dropped away from their MSRPs.

We're told the other Panasonics will receive the autofocus improvements of the S5 by the end of 2020, but for now the S5 adds yet another competent-looking stills/video hybrid camera to the mix. Especially as Panasonic has already said that the S5 will receive a free update adding DCI 4K, Raw video output and shutter angle control at a later date.
