Panasonic will soon announce two new cameras and a new lens: S5II, S5II X and 14-28mm f/4.0-5.6

Digicameinfo confirmed the following products will be announced soon:

    – Body/Standard Zoom Lens Kit/Double Lens Kit-
    Scheduled release date: February 16, 2023
    – Body/Standard zoom lens kit/Double lens kit-
    Scheduled release date: Late June 2023
  • LUMIX S 14-28mm F4-5.6 MACRO
    – Model number: S-R1428
    – Release date: March 16, 2023

The surprise now is to see that S5II X model. Maybe a higher Megapixel version of the S5II?

Is the Panasonic S5 II coming at CES?

On the web I see many speculating with a release of the new Panasonic S5II ate the CES show. It’s also said it will be Panasonic’s first S camera with phase detection AF (maybe even Lidar!). So let’s start with the facts:

  1. Yes, Panasonic held a big secret meeting in Tokyo with many famous youtubers and reviewers. So obviously something big is coming soon.
  2. Panasonic has a scheduled CES press conference on January 4th. But so far there is no hint or teaser about some camera related announcement.

And now to my speculation:

  • I do believe the S5II will be the next new camera to be announced by Panasonic.
  • I am not sure if it’s coming at the CES show but the fac they fahd that big Tokyo meeting surely suggests there is something coming soon
  • While I am certain they will have a new autofocus system I am not sure if this means they will implement the new LIDAR tech. It might be the “Normal” phase detection AF

Anyway, let’s see what’s going to happen on Jan 4th!

On Damiens story it looks like I can see Lumix ambassador Sean (his youtube channel is here) and Richard Wong (his youtube channel here). So this might be a Panasonic announcement!
