I was so disappointed to see "26mm f8 pancake". My expectation was something at f2.8-4, but at f8, it's just a lens cap lens.

Come on Panny, make something like Nikon's 26mm f2.8!

At least you won’t need to focus at all! Just point and shoot!

L-rumors has the pancake lens on his video, looks like older 20mm f/2 m43 lens. I don't know why they cannot do it faster esp when both Canon and Nikon have 26/28mm f/2.8. Other Pana lenses look big on the camera. Sigma 24mm 3.5/45mm f2.8/90 2.8 are current small triplets, nothing on Pana side.

Says 28/1.8 S on the end of it though, no? That's not bad at all.

*edit* NVM misread it.

Looks like a nice compact option. I hope they offer an add-on EVF.

Regarding the pancake lens, apparently it will be included "free" with the body.

L-rumors: Panasonic S9 costs $1499 in the USA and 1699€ in Europe!
26mm is $199
no attachable EVF

I'm afraid it might have the fate of GM1/5. Small alone doesn't sell.

I wish someone would make a compact camera like this but with a EVF+diopter and no rear screen. Rear screens suck for me since I have to use reading glasses to even see them clearly.

I think (hope) it's more accurate to say no EVF at launch but there could be one in the future. They'd be throwing away money not to offer one as an add-on.

It should look good with the sigma 45mm f/2.8 or 35mm f/2.

Does anyone know if the Panasonic has the same sensor stack as the SL?

I really want a digital video body that can natively support M mount-

Only the original SL has thin stack. Panasonic uses thick stack just like Nikon, Sony.. Kolari can mod your camera with their super thin stack for few hundred dollars.

Which is a shame!

The new Lumix S9 looks great, being super compact and having interchangeable lenses. However, the lack of a viewfinder is a deal-breaker for me personally.

The Panny system is great, but even this small body it would be coupled with Panny’s relatively bulky lenses (1.8 primes with 67mm threads). We just really want a small FF RF alternative, but no makers seem to be interested in this

I guess we could use the iSeries, but you’re really looking at an a7c variant then…

It looks bigger than A7C series with the added grip that is posted at rumor sites... Similar to GM1 or FP, needs a grip esp with the bigger lenses...



Grip

It's flat and minimally rectangular shaped for SmallRig type cages. The lack of grip and EVF is likely to make it lighter for gimbals too.

Pretty sure some kind of Leica "EVF M" will come. Hopefully with smaller M-mount! But pricing will be easily double compared to the Panny.

I also think something is in the works. Maybe not a camera with the M-rangefinder designator unless of course they go back to the drawing board and are able to revive the dual RF/EVF M camera prototype with better results this time. But even something like the Leica version of the full frame compact S9 L-mount camera geared toward Photography and not Video, could be very interesting IMO.
