Panasonic S5 Mark II with new AF system on the way?

Panasonic S5 Mark II with new AF system on the way?

[11:06 Tue,8.November 2022   by ]    

There are rumblings on the web again - this time about a new Panasonic full-frame camera: There is talk about a successor to the Panasonic full-frame DSLM S5 - i.e. a Panasonic S5 Mark II, which could be introduced at the beginning of 2023.

The rumors are not very concrete yet - so let&s throw on our crystal ball and mix in a few scattered bits of info and some wishful thinking of our own and see what comes out:


The biggest update potential that Panasonic needs to address if they want to be in the "creator" segment is likely to be autofocus performance. As can be read in this interview from Imaging-Recource - a PDAF (Phase Detection Autofocus) seems to be quite an alternative to the previous DFD (Depth from Defocus) system.

If one wanted to think in a completely different direction on the subject of autofocus, one could also bring Panasonic&s Long-range TOF Image Sensor into play, which was introduced a few years ago for industrial use and calculates 3D maps of its surroundings with accurate distances via Time of Flight procedures. The extent to which knowledge can be derived from this for AF development for DSLM sensors remains a matter of speculation.

And ultimately, the development of more AI-supported AF systems could also be an option for expanding AF performance. We are sure that we will see a lot more in camera system development in the future, especially in intelligent scene and object recognition - not only, but also in the topic of AF.

With V-Log, Panasonic has an excellent LOG design that leaves hardly anything to be desired. Dynamic range and color stability are among the traditional strengths of Panasonic DSLMs - as is the excellent stabilization performance in combination with IBIS and OIS.

If we wanted to go one step further, the next logical step would be to integrate ND filter systems into the camera. Whether we go for a mechanical "real" ND filter implementation or an electronic one or a combination in the form of an electric Vario ND filter remains to be seen. In our opinion, this will come as surely as the amen in the church - the question is only when and who will implement it first. If Panasonic had it on the development list, we would rather see it in the successor of an S1H than in an S5 Mark II - but who knows ...

So far a couple of first speculations from our side - what would you like to see in the next Panasonic fullframe DSLM generation?
