    Unless I missed it, it looks like $99 just to rent the camera for a week. I might take advantage of it if a simple lens was included. However, I have no compatible lenses.

    Or am I missing something?

    Looks like Panasonic is getting desparate.

    But what can you expect, use a mount for which MFT lenses are impossible to be used and for which the L lenses are impossible to be used on MFT.
    That's no cooincidence!

    I own a dozen MFT lenses and would never want to use them on a Panasonic S camera because most of them wouldn't properly cover the APS-C format, let alone the FF format.

    And L mount lenses are already huge on the big S cameras. They would be humongous when mounted on MFT cameras. I can't see why anyone would want to do this ?

    What lenses do you own ? Sony E mount ? Nikon Z lenses ? Canon R mount lenses ?

    I own eight old Nikon AI-S FF lenses and bought a $20 L-mount adapter that works perfectly on Panasonic S cameras.

    It seems that pretty much any lenses that cover FF and are not designed for mirrorless cameras can be used with the right adapter. ( you might have to deal with manual everything, but I'm ok with that )

    All I have are Panasonic MFT lenses, so nothing that will fit the S1H.

    Are you disparaging their desperation?

    PS. It's a nice camera but overpriced without any form of Raw. The company has been working with Atomos for a similar type of arrangement as Nikon with its Z6 and Z7. It's supposed to come out in early 2020 but no date has been offered or set. The Panny/Atomos announcement was last September. It took almost a year between the announcement and the actual release for Nikon/Atomos.

    PPS. It ought to be noted that the Z6Ninja5 combo runs about $2,700, while S1H alone is $4,000.

    Frankly, I feel they left their MFT customer base in the cold by introducing a new line that has no transition capability whatsoever with their MFT customer base.

    If they would have introduced a larger frame mount while still enabling, with an adapter, full video using MFT it would have given customers the ability to gradually transition to a larger frame and larger lenses.
