Best Match- S1R & Sigma 40mm 1.4 HSM "Big Performance"
9

The Panasonic S1R and the Sigma 40mm 1.4 HSM go together like peas & carrots.

Before you say "But the SIZE" and "What about the weight?" keep one thing in mind:

Shaquille O'Neal DOMINATED the NBA for years & has the rings to prove it!

Height: 7′ 1″, Shoe size: 23, Weight: 324 lbs --- he was BIG!

Now- back to photography. The charts on the Sigma 40mm are stellar.. outstanding!

The sheer weight of the S1R and the Sigma 40mm f1.4 HSM will have you listing to one side if you are of slight stature. I'm 6'1" and 275lbs and it tires me out on extended shoots. But I will not hesitate when I want every megamorsel of IQ from my S1R.

Quick photo shoot at the nybg.org as I was trying to shoot at very shallow aperatures w/o flash to get a look I wanted:
