Reviewers from Digitaltrends have found the following[***]:
At 1.5 pounds, the S5 isn't just Panasonic's lightest full-frame camera. It's even lighter — barely — than the Lumix GH5, the company's MFT flagship. The S5 can detect bodies and faces at half the size as the S1 — as small as 2.5% of the frame.
Reviewers from Pcmag have found the following[***]:
The Lumix S5 follows the standard design paradigm followed by most full-frame mirrorless cameras. It sports front and rear dials on the top plate, as well as a flat command dial on the rear. The camera is compatible with L-mount lenses, available from Leica, Panasonic, and Sigma.
Reviewers from Techradar have found the following[***]:
The Panasonic Lumix S5 is the baby brother of the company's existing full-frame mirrorless cameras. Available at a cheaper price point, it also has a much smaller and lighter body than the rest of the S1 range. The only drawback is that while the 20-60mm lens is nicely sized, other L Mount lenses from Panasonic are much larger – so in terms of overall system size, it's not quite so straightforward.
