The X Vario 14-42mm lens boasts high performance specifications like autofocus, nano surface coating and Power O.I.S. (Optical Image Stabilization) as well as offering a versatile zoom range of 14-42mm (35mm camera equivalent: 28-84mm) making it suitable for a wide range of scenes from dynamic landscapes to portraits.
Two ED lens elements compensate for chromatic aberration, and the silent design makes this an ideal lens for shooting video. For those new to interchangeable lens cameras, using the zoom at the push of a button will be familiar to them from their compact camera; while more advanced users will appreciate the smooth zooming when shooting video.
Comprised of nine lenses in eight groups, the lens system features excellent contrast across the entire zoom range. The inclusion of four asphericallenses also improves optical performance by minimising distortion, even at the 28 mm wide end. The two ED lenses effectively compensate for chromatic aberration.
