Panasonic just fixed the biggest weakness of its Lumix mirrorless cameras

Panasonic grabbed the camera headlines at CES 2023 by announcing two full-frame cameras that bring a much-needed new feature to the Lumix lineup – phase detection autofocus.

The successors to the Panasonic Lumix S5, the Panasonic Lumix S5II and Lumix S5IIX are shaping up to be impressive video work thanks to their 24MP full-frame CMOS sensors. A first for Lumix cameras, this sensor brings a hybrid phase-detection autofocus system, which should (in theory) be a big leap from the contrast-based detection system seen in its previous cameras.
