Capable of using under harsh conditions with its splash / dust proof design.
*As of September 17, 2012, as a digital interchangeable lens of 70-200mm F2.8 (35mm camera equiv.).
1 UED (Ultra Extra-Low Dispersion) lens and 2 ED (Extra-Low Dispersion) lenses minimise chromatic aberration and distortion.
Panasonic's Nano Surface Coating technology minimises reflection at the entire visual light range (380nm-780nm) by applying the extra-low refractive index coating with nano-sized structure on the surface of the lens. It results in super clear pictures with dramatic reduction of ghost and flare.
POWER O.I.S. (Optical Image Stabiliser) that suppresses large, slow movement 2x more effectively*
* Compared with the conventional MEGA O.I.S.
High descriptive performance for resolution and contrast at entire zoom range without changing the overall length.
