I Was Right About Panasonic’s L-Mount Alliance: The Lumix S Series

L1

I wrote about the various possibilities for what Panasonic’s countdown timer for Photokina 2018 could mean, and I was right. Ah, so good to gloat. This was my prediction:

Possibility 4: They really are doing a new, regular FF ML product line. In which case I say they should get ready for massive failure against the existing competition.

FF has been perceived as the ultimate medium for image quality as long as we do not cross over to the pro-level medium-format and its eye-watering price tags. The best medium one can buy within the boundaries of (relative) affordability. However, does one really need it? Continue reading “Do You Need Full-Frame?”
