SAR reports:

The same sources whom shared all the correct info about Sigma lenses confirmed that Sigma has decided to postpone the 70-200mm f/2.8 FE lens launch to autumn 2020. One of the sources says the reason has to do with Sigma trying to improve the autofocus algorithm. This works very good on prime lenses but is said to not be flawless on zoom lenses. They need time to improve it.

Sigma 85mm f/1.4 L-mount lens will cost $1,199

(L3) Will Panasonic soon announce the new DC-S5?

The Japanese site Nomadly claims to have found a Panasonic document accidentally listening a new unreleased DC-S5 camera. There was no info about the possible specs of the camera.

Panasonic stated multiple times that they are working on a new entry level FF camera. I think it’s highly possible we might get this one in autumn!
