hi all,

I am putting in my G9 , exchanging to full Frame....

I am slightly hesitant , should I go for the S5 with 20-60 , or the S1 with 24-105 f4.

I have the S5 and the 24-105. I wouldn't want the S1 because of its size. The 24-105 is a really nice lens, but is big and heavy. I wish I had the option of the 20-60.

If you're going to add a longer telephoto, which you choose could influence the choice of midrange lens. If you go with the 70-300, the 20-60 is a valid option. If you go with the 100-400, you might prefer the 24-105 to avoid the large gap between 60 and 100.

I just did a client shoot with my S1 and S1H, using the 20-60 and the 24-105. At every focal length, the 24-105 if significantly sharper than the 20-60.

Simply no comparison.

Additionally, you also have the Dual I.S. capability with the 24-105, which makes a significant difference with many photos.

Take a look at this photo I shot with the 24-105 and the S1H. The vertical stabilization is automatically enabled as soon as a user pans.
