(35mm camera equivalent: 24 - 70mm) covers wide-angle
to standard to medium telephoto shooting. Not only ideal
for capturing landscapes while traveling, this lens’s wide
diameter gives you top-quality indoor shots too. Perceptive
and defocusing effects add to the features, giving you
exactly the kind of photos and videos you’re looking for. Its
splash/dust/freezeproof design also makes it great for

POWER O.I.S. for Ultra-Sharp Photos
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.
Taking highly popular MEGA O.I.S. further, this advanced
technology immediately compensates even large camera
shake and vibrations that may occur in photography. So
you can capture true-to-life scenes without the need for a
tripod. In the end, you’ll enjoy wonderfully crisp images.
Nano Surface Coating Gives Superb Clarity
Put an end to unwanted ghosting and flaring – the Nano
Surface Coating has been applied to lenses within the
system. This special, ultra-thin coating was developed
originally by Panasonic to reduce bothersome reflections
across the entire light spectrum. The result: crystal-clear
pictures even if you’re photographing a light source in the

14 elements in 9 groups:
– 4 aspherical lenses
– 1 Ultra Extra-Low Dispersion
– 1 Ultra High Refractive Index lens
Aspherical (ASPH) lenses reduce size and weight,
effectively preventing spherical and distortion aberration.
Ultra-high refractive index (UHR) lenses improve optical
performance, reduce size and weight, and achieve uniform
image quality from the centre to the edges of the image.
Ultra Extra-Low Dispersion (UED) lenses correct
chromatic aberration rendering sharp, high-contrast
images with clear colours from corner to corner.
For lenses that are capable of compensating
distortion, the horizontal axis of the MTF
