Drawing subjects in from a distance, this 300mm (35mm camera equivalent: 600mm) ultra-telephoto zoom lens is ideal for capturing intense action sports, or even animals you couldn’t normally get close to. Unlike conventional lenses, LUMIX G lenses like this one are small, lightweight and fit perfectly in the palm of your hand. Now you can take professional-looking shots of an athlete – and even capture individual drops of water falling through the air.
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.
17 elements in 12 groups:
- 1 Extra-Low Dispersion lens
Extra-Low Dispersion (ED) lenses correct chromatic aberration rendering sharp, high-contrast images with clear colors from corner to corner.
For lenses that are capable of compensating distortion, the horizontal axis of the MTF shows the distance from the center of the corrected image.
