Re: My latest foray into FF mirrorless - and why I'm sticking with m43

I spent half a day with the FF Panasonic Lumix S1 on Saturday - it's undoubtedly nice and I'd not say no if offered one, but it's huge! The 50mm f/1.4 is the size of a ZD 14-35 f/2.0 - and some of you will know how large and heavy that is. It must be 3-4 times longer than a film-era Zuiko 50mm f/1.4 and 5-6 times the weight. It's astonishing. On the other hand, it's very sharp and playing with the DOF (or lack of it) at f/1.4 is fun.
