The new Lumix G Vario 14-140mm/F3.5-5.6 ASPH./POWER O.I.S lens, an interchangeable lens suitable for shooting everything from vast, open landscapes to action packed sports photos.
Complying with the Micro Four Thirds System standard, the LUMIX G VARIO 14-140mm / F3.5-5.6 ASPH. / POWER O.I.S. (H-FS14140) offers a wide and long zoom range of 14-140mm (35mm camera equivalent: 28-280mm) in a stylishly compact and lightweight form. The lens has high versatility and mobility and can be used to capture subjects up close or for shooting impressive portraits with beautifully defocused backgrounds.
Comprising of 14 elements in 12 groups, the lens system features three aspherical lenses and two ED (Extra-low Dispersion) lenses to achieve dramatic downsizing despite its powerful 10x optical zoom, while minimising distortion and chromatic aberration.
The POWER O.I.S ( Optical Image Stabiliser) boasts double repression power compared to the MEGA O.I.S. It is particularly effective for a low-frequency vibration, which is physically generated when pressing the shutter button or when shooting at night with a slow shutter speed. This greatly improves the quality of shots taken at night or indoors where flash cannot be used, or where the photographer doesn't want to use flash because it would spoil the mood. It captures beautiful photos in situations that previously resulted in blurring.
Incorporating an inner focus drive system and stepping motor, the Lumix G Vario 14-140mm / F3.5-5.6 ASPH. / POWER O.I.S. (H-FS14140) is capable of smooth, silent operation to work with the camera’s high-speed, high-precision contrast AF system for both photo and video recording. It is also compatible with the sensor drive at max. 240 fps to take maximum advantage of cameras with high-speed AF such as DMC-GH3 and the new DMC-G6.
Panasonic have applied an extra-low refractive index coating with nano-sized structure on the surface of the lens. The resulting pictures are clear, with dramatic reduction of ghosts and flare.
These lenses prevent spherical and distortion aberrations, so higher magnification can be achieved with fewer lenses. Resulting in smaller size and weight, these lenses feature the high dimensional accuracy of Panasonic’s cutting-edge production technologies, including concave lenses that measure just 0.3mm at their thinnest part.
