    Hope this is the right location to post? Can't find a Lumix S-camera thread.

    I am looking for input from S1H owners who have tried the following zoom lens options, for video and stills?

    Panasonic Pro S 16-35 f/4 L-Mount
    Sigma 12-24 Art f/2.8 DG DN L-Mount

    Panasonic Pro S 24-70 f/2.8 L-Mount
    Sigma 24-70 Art f/2.8 DG DN L-Mount

    For longer I am pretty sold on Panasonic Pro S 70-200 f/2.8 L-Mount

    I wasn't aware of a Sigma 12-24 2.8 (I thought it was a 4.0)
    I have the Sigma 14-24 2.8 in Canon Mount - which I use on My EVA1 (which is of course super 35) as well as adapted onto an A7s for full frame/stills.
    I've been very happy with the images from it on both cameras. For full frame it doesn't lose exposure around the corners the way my Nikkor 17-35 does, so it's become a go-to wide lens for full frame stills.
    One thing to be aware of, though, is that it has a curved front element and a design that makes it almost impossible to add filters!

    Thanks OnSet, Appreciate your reply and input. Sigma just came out with this lens in the fall. Looks like a great option. There is a spot in the back of the lens for filters.

    The sigma 14-24 is a great lens but adding a ND filter is a pain. You need the NiSin adapter and a 150x150 filter. That’s huge and expensive. I use it a lot for stills with the S1R. Love it. I had to re-shoot some photos which where done with the D850 and the Nikon 14-24. The sigma was far outstanding better.
    But for video I will get the 16-35 also because of it’s 77mm filter thread and the more versatile focal lengths.

    The Panasonic 24-70 is superb. Can’t say anything about the Sigma but it’s common that AF works much better on native lenses

    Thanks, Clermond,

    I now have the Panasonic S Pro 24-70 f/2.8, L-mount and am very impressed. Agree I did not go for the Sigma 14-24 because of the filters. At that wide filters are just needed more often then not. So I am waiting for the Panasonic S Pro 16-35. At f/4 it won't be a problem with the S1H.

    Also looking at getting the L-mount Sigma 85mm f/1.4 for interviews. Then the Panasonic 70-200 S Pro. That will get me going.

    So far I am very impressed with the S1H, one beast of a camera. And that is after using the Sony FS7 MK2 for a couple of years. Prefer the S1H.

    Just out of curiosity, does your Panny 24-70mm lens hold focus when zooming from 70mm to 24mm ?

    Apparently some people are lucky and have a copy that will hold focus, while others have said that their copy won't do it.

    Just curious to see how common this is.

    Mine seems pretty good. I would not call it ParFocal like a good Cine lens, but better then any other still lens I have used for video.

    Late to the party and see you already got the Panny 24-70, but I'd affirm that and just say for me - I'd probably go either all Sigma or all Panasonic, and right now, without further research, I'd go all Panasonic. Native L mount from ground up first party support and from what I've read they really are cutting no corners on the lens designs. So I think you've chosen well, and while it costs more $$, it's not *THAT* much more in the grand scheme of the package and ROI and the benefits tentatively seem like they may well be worth it.

    Thanks for the input, I agree the 24-70 is showing its value each time I use it. And native to me always seems the right path. Now to have the 16-35, 70-200 be in stock this week would be nice. And the SmallRig cage.
