Just finally received the S5 and tested it’s autofocus and formats.

Autofocus is much better than the 99% of people would make you believe.
For me best settings so far: speed 0 and sensitivity +3.

Have both the 50mm 1.8 and 20-60 3.5 both are really good lenses but the 50mm f1.8 is much better for low light and portraits photos or videos.

For YouTube the 20-60 is the best for us.

For home photos and family videos the 50mm 1.8 is the one!

Video unboxing

Lumix S5 kit with 2 lenses unboxing

this Panasonic Lumix S5 kit comes with the camera and two lenses.

First lens is the 22-60mm 3.5-5.6 kit lens.

The second lens is the 50mm f-18, a very good lens for low light when the 20 to 60 mm lens doesn’t have enough light to to work.

The 50mm prime lens doesn’t have any zoon so that might be a problem but when you need zoom you can use the 20-60mm lens.

Unboxed the camera + 2 lenses kit and charged the battery. Tried the Panasonic 20-60 lens today and it works pretty good evening low light conditions.
