Along with the announcement of the Lumix S5 camera, Panasonic has updated its L-mount lens roadmap to confirm five new lenses; four f/1.8 primes plus a 70-300mm telephoto zoom.

A new Lumix S 35mm f/1.8 lens was added to the Lumix S 24mm f/1.8, Lumix S 50mm f/1.8 and Lumix S 85mm f/1.8 lenses which were heralded in the previous lens roadmap, released in March. Also new is the Lumix S 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6 lens. The four prime lenses are said to have the same physical dimensions and are expected to have lower prices than existing equivalents. The 50mm and 85mm F1.8 lenses are expected to become available before Christmas.

There are currently seven Panasonic-branded, L-mount lenses available in Australia for the S-series cameras. Click here for details
