To further strengthen the S-Series lens system, Panasonic has announced that the development is underway for a new 18mm f/1.8 ultra-wide-angle lens that will join the 85mm (S-S85), 50mm (S-S50), 24mm (S-S24) and the new 35mm (S-S35) which you can read ePHOTOzine's review of now. 

No more details have been released about the 18mm f/1.8 lens as of yet but we'll share any information we receive as soon as we can. 

Alongside the development of new lenses, firmware update programs are also available for the S-R70200, S-E70200, S-R70300 and S-R24105 lenses to improve the stability of the Image Stabiliser during video recording. In addition, the image stabilisation performance of Dual I.S. 2 has been increased from 6.5 stops to 7.5 stops for photoshoots when the S-R24105 is mounted on the LUMIX S1H, S1R or S1.
