    Or you could just get a DSLR that’ll outperform it for the same price or less...

    This seems to be the general situation/dilemma for me with the introduction of all the latest FF mirrorless cameras - Nikon Z has (still) not the AF capabilities I need, Canon is missing IBIS and useable 4k, Panasonic is far too much on the PRO side making these cameras too large, heavy and expensive for what I want.

    The R lenses (especially that announced small size 2.8/70-200) are just to die for, also that 2/28-70, the 1.2/85 and the 15-35 would make my dream kit forever and make me waiting when Canon will finally introduce this new Pro level R camera. I could not care less about entry level lenses, although I am pretty sure they will soon add some of them.
    The 28-70 is an extremely large lens of size is a concern of yours. There’s a 95mm filter thread and the lens weighs over 3lbs. Excellent lens no doubt but it doesn’t solve theprice or size concerns you have with Panasonic at all. By comparison, all of the announced Panasonic lenses are cheaper and likely smaller.

    Interesting thread.

    Just a thought but how is it possible in this day and age to create a mirrorless digital camera which can only achieve 5fps? That is an almost unique achievement.

    What’s more “impressive” is that it drops to 1-2fps when you want to track in AF mode...

    A frame rate of 5 fps is not a limitation for general photography. Not very many years ago, I shot motor sports with cameras around that speed (D2Xs, D300). The only serious limitation I can see in the RP is the sensor, particularly it's limited exposure lattitude when correcting under exposure and/or lifting shadows.

    A good point about the sensor. I was potentially very interested in the RP but online reviews are fairly abysmal....whats the point of buying a FF camera if the image quality (resolution and DR anyway) is not better, or even equal, to APS-C....? Ken Rockwell thinks the RP is great but he is the only one and Dpreview were much more clinically questioning.......
