Fujifilm has updated its X-mount lens roadmap, with the promise of an 18mm F1.4 and a 70-300mm F4-5.6 OIS, both due in 2021.
Richard graduated as a scientist but had a lot more fun writing and shooting for his university magazine. A number of years spent variously as a reporter, writer and editor on science and engineering titles combined his knowledge of science with his interest in images and words. But it was spotting the connections between emission spectra, white balance and all the nonsense he'd taught himself playing around in Photoshop that helped kindle an interest in digital photography. Searching for a camera led to him discovering DPReview and Richard was recruited by Phil Askey in 2007. He's been combining his love of photography, communication and attention to detail (pedantry?) ever since.
He has unusually strong opinions about lenses for the APS-C format.

Panasonic's S5 shows improved autofocus performance, particularly for stills shooting. It's not there yet but Technical Editor Richard Butler thinks the changes show that DFD isn't necessarily a dead-end.

Updated Lens availability is a critical part of choosing a camera system. We have a look at the four full-frame mirrorless mounts to see how their lineups and technologies currently compare.
The Panasonic Lumix DC-S5 is a smaller, more affordable addition to the line of full-frame mirrorless cameras. Its video spec is similar to that of the S1 with V-Log upgrade, its autofocus (particularly for stills) is improved, but it's both smaller and less expensive than the S1.
