The Panasonic Lumix S9 has been the subject of numerous leaks, with all the specifications and design known except for a few details. Today, a new leak claimed by prolific leaker Andrea Pizzini claims that the Lumix S9 will launch with an aggressive retail price of just $1,499.

While the $1499 price is supposedly confirmed, there seems to be some confusion over whether this is a kit lens or not. Pizzini’s Source tells him that this could be a lens package with the 26mm F/8.0 lens that will be used for the first time 26mm F/8.0 that was rumored at the over the weekend, but the kit is unlikely to cost $1,499.

Moving into the realm of speculation, it’s entirely possible that Panasonic will offer the new 26mm lens with the Lumix S9 for pre-orders or as a limited-time introductory offer, simply because the Reaction to the announcement of the target was rather marauding.

Either way, Panasonic’s Lumix S9 appears to be aggressively priced, especially considering the Sony-dominated creator market it’s apparently targeting. This price puts it in the same range as Fujifilm’s recently announced APS-C X-T50, which launched at $1,399.95 for the body alone (or $1,499.95 with a kit lens). 15-45mm).

Along with the price leaks, it appears that at least one accessory maker, Sirui, has preemptively released a grip for the Lumix S9 on Amazon, giving us the most detailed look at the front, sides, and above the next full-frame camera.

The images confirm a number of things. First of all, the Lumix S9 won’t have a built-in flash, but it looks like it will have a dedicated mic jack – likely 3.5mm – hidden behind a door on the top left of the camera. The marketing images also show the hinged screen and a separate door for the SD card slot – and likely other ports – on the right side of the camera body.
