I am Currently on The Market For A Full Frame Travel/Family Camera To Upgrade My G85 (I am Not A professional), I was thinking between The A7c Or S5 w/ Sigma 28-70 f2.8, but there aren’t many reviews of that lens on l mount, so does anybody know How Good The AF Is with The S5, I am OK with the AF Performance Of The G85, But As Far As i Know Sigma Lenses Dont Use DFD Data, So Is The Autofocus Usable For Family Or Travel? Is it better than the G85 or should i just go with the A7c?

gotta decide what's most important to you, size or ergonomics?

Easy choice for me; i could not live w/ the A7C's evf and lack of index finger dial

(even the totally superior A7riii doesn't match the ergo/UI of S5)

Obviously the sony lens lineup trumps L-mount, but Sigma is really coming through for panasonic.  I own sigma 14-24, 35&65f2, and 100-400 - all designed for mirrorless, and all excellent (IQ, AF, size and value).  What more could we ask for?!

I will probably buy the 105 DG DN Art, and will definitely look closely at the 28-70.  Don't miss out on the kit 20-60, although it overlaps the 28-70!
