Panasonic Lumix vs Sigma ART 50mm f/1.4 review – L Mount

Richard Wong:

In this review, I’ll compare the two 50mm f/1.4 lenses for L-Mount cameras: Panasonic Lumix 50mm f/1.4 and Sigma ART 50mm f/1.4. Which is the better lens? I’ll talk about and compare the build quality, autofocus performance, image quality (Sharpness, bokeh, flare, distortion, CA, vignetting..etc), special features of these two lenses in this video.

DPReview TV: Panasonic DFD vs. Canon Dual Pixel Autofocus


Panasonic’s proprietary DFD (Depth from Defocus) autofocus system has both its critics and its fans, but Chris and Jordan think the system might have gotten a bad rap. In this episode they compare DFD to Canon’s Dual-Pixel autofocus system. Might the results surprise you?

Panasonic S1H: What we know so far, and what we think’s likely (Dpreview)

Here are a couple of extra info via Dpreview:

  • Panasonic says it will combine aspects from the GH-series, the full-frame S-series and its pro-level Cinema Varicam series
  • The “H” stands for stills/video hybrid with high quality
  • The most likely implication of these specs is that the camera has a 24MP sensor.
  • Panasonic talks about the S1H offering ‘multi-aspect’ shooting, including 4:3 anamorphic shooting. But we’re not taking this as proof that it has an multi-aspect sensor, in the same way the GH2 and GH5S have.
  • The 60p video will probably come from a Super35 crop
  • It’s possible that this greater gimbal and steadicam friendliness, combined with the improved heat management of being able to attach the sensor to a heat sync would push the S1H towards using a fixed sensor (no IBIS)

Published specs:

  • 6K 3:2 capture at 24p
  • 16:9 5.9K capture at up to 30p
  • ‘Multi aspect’ recording including anamorphic 4:3 capture
  • 10-bit DCI and UHD 4K capture at up to 60p
  • Unlimited recording times
  • 14+ stop V-Log/V-Gamut capture
  • Color reproduction to match Cinema VariCam series
