Soundimagesplus shared his interesting thoughts about the L-mount. I am only sharing the final conclusion here:
It’s impossible to know whether Panasonic can penetrate the Canon / Nikon professional market. They will certainly have to prove themselves to working photographers, whose concerns are about reliability and the overall robustness of the system. I’m certainly thinking that we may well be talking about 5 years down the line. However if Panasonic can get a working 8K hybrid camera out for the Tokyo Olympics, then that may speed things up. Lets not forget that 8K provides for 36MP stills, via video ‘grabs’, which may mean that when that emerges we will all be shooting on video and sorting out the stills later.
The said S1R does seem to be what I hoped. A ‘Full Frame’ G9. So will the L Mount rule? Well for me the answer is yes it will and I suspect that if Panasonic get it right, it will for lot’s of other people too.
You can join the new L Full Frame Facebook group if you plan to buy this camera. There you can discuss all features and tests once it’s released!
