Panasonic seems to have lost interest in making cameras for photography, and now are only making cameras for video, so I'd say another high res model is not very likely.

I do almost no video, and I'd personally love an S5 with the 61MP sensor like the Sigma fp-l, but I think the best I can hope for is the 33MP sensor like the Sony A7iv, but I'd be ok with that.

I don't really NEED higher resolution, but at this point I want to see some evidence that there is a future in the S series for stills photography before I put any more money into lenses for it. I kind of wish I went with Sony for this reason, but every time I pick one up the ergonomics make me want to throw it against a wall.

I think you (and we) will be safe. Even with video in first , new sensors will come and Panasonic will definitely join the 8k train, so we simple photographers will also get a new cameras with more resolution then the actual S5…
