If you don’t need to rely upon tracking AF then the L-mount options would suit you. They all have very very strong video capabilities, and access to a very large range of affordable, high-quality lenses - including native Sigma: (Over 100 lenses)

They have extensive features and the highest IQ for their respective classes:

The smallest, specialised options are the 24mpx Sigma fp and 61mpx Sigma fp L with "crop-zoom" (also the Lumix box cine camera).

The medium-sized all-rounder is the 24mpx Lumix S5

The hefty options are the 24mpx Lumix S1, S1H, and 47mpx S1R. These generally have the best full-frame IBIS available.

(There are also Leica SL and APS-C options.)

DPReview’s L-mount, Leica, and Sigma forums have more info.

The system is also notable for small lens options: 350g Lumix 20-60, 470g Sigma 28-70mmF2.8 and "I" series primes. (Also 295g 18-50mmF2.8 aps-c lens)

Note also that Sigma provides teleconverters for the 105mm macro, 100-400, 150-600 which are not available for the E-mount versions (Note that they also unofficially work with the Leica-certified Panasonic 70-200 lenses, the f/4 version is quite affordable given the Leica designation. The non-Leica Panasonic Lumix 70-300 doesn’t take any teleconverters, though.)

Hi, thanks for the suggestion - I'll check out the L-mount too.
