There is a saying in IT (was it from Tom Cook?): if something is free, you are the product. has a basic account fo $48 p.a. That's not free but cheap. And they are pretty good.

That would make the S-mount cameras have a crop factor of 28 / 20 = 1.4x  Tongue Big Grin

who would get 28-70 when he can have 20-60 ?? I wanted a compact standard zoom and that was the only one available for full frame mirrorless
Just taking your words seriously for fun... "that's exactly what I was asking for".
I agree that gaining a lot at the wide angle is worth it when you only lose the 60-70mm range, for me. 70mm is never long enough anyway, when you want something longer than "normal".
It's now official :

What an amazing and unique range!
Traditional standard zooms always start at 24 which I often find too narrow for landscapes, hence the necessity to carry another 16-35 or similar lens which means swapping.
If Panasonic were to release a small S body (please Panasonic...), I'd seriously consider the system for this lens alone :-) Definitely a unique selling point!

BTW this lens is about the same size and weight as the Olympus 12-40 f2.8 MFT (FF equiv to 24-80 f5.6).

Also, I wonder why Samyang and other small third party makers are not releasing any of their FF lenses for L mount? That would attract new people to the system I think.
I strongly believe Panasonic would attract people to their L system if they had a smaller form factor body.
