I'm a 50mm aficionado and with the Covid work/shooting slowdown this is the right time to try out some new gear. I have been wanting a system where I can consolidate an awesome stills machine with quality video (I don't need a cine-rig or anything) as video or more an interest than anything I get paid to do yet. All said, I don't want to shell out $2-3K for a dedicated rig.

Not as excited by Canon or the Nikon Z. But, 50mm is my primary focal length for stills work. I am super intrigued by the 50 S Pro lens, but also VERY curious of the new 50 1.8. I will often stop down to F2 with 50s so it might cut the mustard for me

Anyway, with the AF updates I'm confident I will be in love with this system. Also really intrigued by the Lumix color coming from Nikon and Sony, the latter of which I didn't ever like. Thanks!

Given that the 85mm is shipping now, let’s hope that the rest of the lineup will follow in Q1 and Q2 next year...
