The new Panasonic Lumix G X Vario PZ 45-175 mm f/4-5.6 ASPH. / POWER O.I.S. lens with HD video support is designed for use with G Series Micro Four Thirds compact system cameras and offers an outstandingly compact design with a versatile zoom range of 45-175 mm (35 mm camera equivalent: 90-350 mm). Ideal for taking portraits due to high contrast and resolution being assured at the wide-end, it also allows distant subjects such as sports and wildlife to be captured clearly, even at the tele-end. Made for use when capturing HD movies, the zoom lever allows for stable zooming with ease, even when shooting moving subjects.
The lens system features the inclusion of two ED lenses, which suppress chromatic aberration, contributing to high descriptive performance at the entire zoom range. Seven aperture blades make up the circular aperture diaphragm and produce an attractive smoothness in out-of-focus areas even when shooting at a large aperture.
A unique Nano Surface Coating is designed to minimise ghosts and flaring, minimising reflection at the entire visual light range (380nm-780nm). The POWER Optical Image Stabiliser integrated in the lens makes it easy to shoot super clear shots even in low-lit situations such as at night time or indoors. With the improved sensitivity of the gyro sensor, the new POWER O.I.S. is twice as effective in suppressing large, slow movements.
When the lens is mounted on LUMIX G Micro System cameras, users can take advantage of the Contrast AF system. Adopting an inner focus system driven by a stepping motor, the superior optical design of the lens offers smooth operation to support Light Speed AF of approximately 0.15 second. By speeding up the aperture control, shutter time lag is also shortened.
