bokehmon22: I bought S1 after considering Sony A7III, A7RIII, A9, EOS R. Panasonic S1 is the camera I ended buying and keeping.

No other camera check mark all the boxes I want to move away from my DSLR. Best EVF, best IBIS, dual card slot, great dynamic range and high ISO performance, fully touch screen, 400,000 shutter life, great ergonomic and work with my Canon lens. The 4K24/30 10 bit upgrade is amazing. I ended up getting the camera for $2000 and I think it's a steal.

It might be too big or AF isn't as great as competitor, but I'm used to dslr size and the AF is better than my Canon 6D & 5DIV. I'm really happy using the camera traveling with it on vacation, shooting wedding and landscape.

I've used my Canon 5DIV to shoot occasionally. I wouldn't say it blow it out the water.

Regardless, I've used the camera to record my vacation in Europe and the files are much more beautiful than any Canon I've used and smaller

It's better than Canon 5DIV AF in some ways. No micro adjustments, and eyeAF. It's also more sensitive in low light - 6EV.

It definitely open more photographic opportunities for me and make it more enjoyable than my Canon 5DIV. It's really easy for me to take pictures - eyeAF, IBIS, EVF, high dynamic range.

The IBIS is useful in places that ban tripod.

The eyeAF and lock lever to lock the setting is useful for handling over to someone to take our pictures. Dummy proof

I really enjoy the dynamic range and high ISO this camera captured. It give me more latitude in post.

I wish it's smaller and lighter but it isn't a deal breaker. All this for $2000 is a great deal

JackM: "AF system less reliable than competition"

Next.

There are more to a camera than AF system. It's not the best but it's mile ahead of Canon 6D and better in some way than 5DIV (eyeAF).

It does exceptionally well for pose portrait, slow walking, or landscape. I have no problem shooting family, wedding, engagement, and lanscape with it.

I hope it get to Sony level but it's more usable than suggested.

nitroman: Can you use Canon EF lenses on this camera with an adapter? If so, is AF still good?

I don't use teleconverter ever so I can't comment on it. I did use Sigma 105 1.4, Canon 24-70 2.8, 70-200 2.8. It focus pretty fast. It's -6 EV @ 1.4 just like Canon.
I think at 2.8 it won't focus as great.

Yes works with Canon EF lens. -6EV. Fast and quick. No AF-C though. Fast enough for wedding.

bokehmon22: Free FW update until Sept 30th.

I got free battery and grip ($430 value), free 3 year extended warranty, and free FW update ($200). You made a fan out of me Panasonic. I sold my Canon 5D IV for $2000 - same price I got S1 for.

Don't forget that too.

That's one of the advantage of living in the US. My cell phone service and internet speed is much more expensive though.

MirrorLessHater: Very nice specs, congrats Panasonic.
Competition is good for consumer.

I hope Sony respond to the challenge. I know Canon won't.
Sony need to match 4K, EVF, better IBIS, better heat management, menu, better ergonomic and build quality. If they can deliver all that with their excellent eyeAF, I might consider Sony A9II. Loving my S1 right now though

bokehmon22: Panasonic is pushing the industry forward: best EVF, best IBIS, best build qualit, 6K, 10 bit 422 4K30 4K24 internal with unlimited recording and 4K60. I'm glad Sony is pushing in AF dept. I hope Panasonic will get there!

S1H has flippy screen & OLED info screen.

There are places for EOS RP and Panasonic pushing the industry. It's good for consumers when there are competitions!

@ybizzle, yes they don't have the best AF but it's more than acceptable for me and get the job done but I hope more FW will update to Sony level. I shot back in the day of single AF point focus and recompose so I know how to get my shot without it. EyeAF, AF tracking, animal AF, 225 AF points, -6EV is good enough for me, but there are always room for improvement.

I shot a wedding with it and -6EV is super helpful for dark reception. No banding is also a plus of no PDAF.

Regarding banding: my A7RIII buddy complain about banding on it in certain lighting condition. I don't shoot wildlife or sport so I don't need the best AF. I also don't need to worry about lighting scenarios that will trigger it and ruin the shot.

People like to overblown banding and Panasonic AF. I think the truth lie in the middle.

GoodKnight: I wonder if Tamron or Sigma or well anybody can make a go of it making super fast glass for the really wide and shallow Nikon Z system and Canon R.

Nikon is having alot of sale including free adapter. I also see alot of users selling Z6 camera. 14-30 has software correction and vignetting and bow for a pricey lens so I don't know if they see doing that well

That's all I want from them - covering the trinity zoom lenses.

I'm surprised I'm not seeing Sony is better than this or that crowd in here and Panasonic getting love. Am I the wrong forum? lol

liquidsquid: Wow, that resolution is incredible. The blue, white, and black fabric in the lower right. In other examples you cannot really tell it is fabric. On this cam? It is very clear it is!

Impressed by not only the resolution, but the sticker price :-(.

I got the Panasonic S1 for $2250 with free battery and grip pre-order special.

That's just cheaper than EOS R with best EVF, IBIS, new sensor, dual card slot, 4K60, high resolution mode, focus bracketing.

Compare to Sony A7III, it's the same price after selling my grip for better EVF (5.76 million dot EVF vs 2.4 million), better ergonomic, better built, 2.1million fully touch screen LCD vs 900,000 partial touch screen and no 4K60.

You get what you pay for and more with S1. Best camera I've own and best value I've owned. I had Canon 5DIV and EOS R
