A couple of new cameras isn’t the only thing Panasonic announced today. Along with the official announcement for the Panasonic Lumix S1 and S1R full frame mirrorless cameras, comes three new Panasonic L mount lenses. There’s the Panasonic S PRO 50mm f/1.4, the Panasonic S PRO 70-200mm f/4 OIS and the Panasonic S 24-105mm f/4 Macro OIS.

Panasonic reaffirms the alliance between Panasonic, Sigma and Leica, stating that it’s “a user-friendly solution that will allow photographers to ‘mix and match’ any of the three manufacturers’ […] cameras with any lens from each other’s product portfolios”.

    “Certified by Leica”. It’s a Panasonic 50mm at $2200. They couldn’t brake a deal to brand it Leica and label it Summilux. They are dead and they know it.
