It might have been a while since the Black Friday and Boxing Day sales finished - but stellar discount deals aren't just saved for the biggest sale events of the year. And to prove that point we have just spotted this extraordinary deal from Wex on the Panasonic Lumix S5 II that comes with THREE lenses for just £2,099! - this has to be the deal of the year so far!
This is incredible for a number of reasons. First, this full-frame mirrorless camera only came out in January 2023 - so it is still the latest model from Panasonic. Secondly, when you take into consideration the FREE LUMIX S 85mm f/1.8 lens (worth £599) you're getting thrown in, and the available Panasonic £200 voucher (use the code PANA-200 at checkout) you're saving a massive £799!
The three lenses in this bundle are the versatile Lumix S 20-60mm f/3.5-5.6, which is great for video, the high-performance Lumix S 50mm f/1.8 prime, and the perfect-for-portraits Lumix S 85mm f/1.8 - this is an amazing deal on the top-of-the-line, flagship camera from Panasonic!

SAVE £799 at Wex The Lumix S5 II is a full-frame mirrorless camera with a big filmmaking pedigree. It’s built around a 24.2MP CMOS sensor, boasts phase hybrid AF, cinema 4K 60p and 6K 30p – and it’s no stills slouch either. It’s not surprising we gave it five stars in our review!
The Panasonic Lumix S5 II is already an incredible bang-for-buck full frame camera, even without this wild saving - and got a five-star rating in our full review. We summarised the camera like this…
"Building on the solid foundation of the original LUMIX S5’s tough compact frame, class-leading 5-axis in-body image stabilization, and excellent color science, the LUMIX S5 II didn’t need any significant overhauls. However, the addition of phase detection autofocus brings the S5 right in line with some of the best hybrid cameras money can buy. We could be looking at a camera of the year contender."
It's the first Panasonic camera with phase detect autofocus, its 24.2MP sensor delivers 6K 30p or 4K 60p video, 30fps burst shooting, dual native ISO, 4:2:2 10-bit recording, dual memory card slots, and the list goes on.
Nothing is certain, but we are willing to say it is unlikely we are going to see many better deals than this so early on into 2024!
