Two new Full-frame mirrorless cameras announced by Panasonic

Panasonic has announced development for its two upcoming full-frame models, the Lumix S1R and Lumix S1 at Photokina 2018 . They're based around the Leica L mount, as a part of its new 'L-Mount Alliance', which is a strategic partnership with Sigma and Leica.

Panasonic has split its initial line-up into two pro-focused models, one with a high-resolution 47-megapixel sensor optimised for still photography, the  Panasonic S1R and the other with a lower 24-megapixel sensor optimised for video, the Panasonic S1.

Although Panasonic has not given out much details about the upcoming cameras, there are a few inclusions that will make their way into the cameras.
