Panasonic Lumix S1 Review

Panasonic is planning to release an L-mount full-frame mirrorless camera at an affordable price tag, according to a senior representative of the company.

Speaking in an interview with PhotoTrend, Yosuke Yamane, Director of Panasonic’s Imaging Business Division, said that Panasonic wants to expand its product line and release a budget version of its L-mount full-frame mirrorless cameras.

Yamane opined out that Panasonic currently has 10% of the full-frame mirrorless market, with the S1 as its top-selling camera. Further development of this range could help the company increase market share.

However, Yamane said that Panasonic remains committed to its Micro Four Thirds line, and also has no plans for an APS-C-format mirrorless camera.

What’s more, Yamane says that Panasonic plans to release more L-mount lenses by the end of the year.
