Well folks, it’s not Canon nor Nikon, but it’s Panasonic that really went all-in with the features of their new S1R and S1 Full Frame L-mount camera. L-rumors.com shared these images and specs and Panasonic did everything right:
Press text:OBERKOCHEN/Germany, 2018-09-27.With a 40 millimeter fixed focal length, the ZEISS Batis 2/40 CF (Close Focus) is the latest addition to the product family. This standard lens in the ZEISS Batis family features a quick autofocus and an extremely short minimum focus distance. Delivery will start in November 2018. “The focal length on the ZEISS Batis 2/40 CF makes it suitable for a wide range of applications, something customers have been eagerly awaiting.

These sensors would support H. 265 codec and cost 30% less than what you have to pay for equivalent Sony sensors.
