This versatile, high-quality standard zoom lens has a wide focal length range, making it suitable for a variety of shooting situation: from travel snapshots to landscapes and portrait. It also provides well-balanced compensation to eliminate various types of unwanted aberration and deliver superior optical performance across the entire zoom range. So you can enjoy clear results with every photo.
Capture scenes carefree or at the spur of the moment. The optical image stabilisation (O.I.S.) technology built directly into the lens ensures your photos will look great, with sharp blur-free contours across the entire picture.
That’s because this technology immediately compensates the kind of minor movements and vibrations that can so easily occur in photography. But you won’t notice any of this – all you’ll see are wonderfully crisp images.
With HD video support any user has everything they need for recording with their LUMIX camera. Not only does it perform smooth aperture changes so there are no sudden jumps in exposure, it also boasts a silent design for enhanced capture of the scene’s audio. What’s more, it offers excellent tracking performance – so you won’t miss a moment of the action.
12 elements in 9 groups:
- 1 aspherical lens
Aspherical (ASPH) lenses reduce size and weight, effectively preventing spherical and distortion aberration.
For lenses that are capable of compensating distortion, the horizontal axis of the MTF shows the distance from the center of the corrected image.
