This wide-angle zoom lens combines top-level resolution with a lightweight, compact design. As a member of the LUMIX S PRO series, it meets all stringent LEICA standards. Its resolution performance excels throughout the zoom range and in every pixel of the image.
In addition, the focus actuator with double magnet linear motor helps deliver 480 fps AF control for high-speed, high-accuracy AF performance. To support outstanding video recording, the lens is designed to minimise focus breathing and make smooth exposure changes. In both still photography and video, the LUMIX S PRO 16-35mm F4 delivers uncompromising quality and expressive power.

Rugged Design for Intrepid Photography
Brave the elements in nearly any kind of weather or shooting location. This lens is dust- and splash-resistant* and designed for use at temperatures as low as -10 °C. Protecting the lens system inside from sand, rain and more, this structure makes the lens perfect for shooting under harsh conditions and tough enough to withstand heavy field use. Now there is nothing holding you back from capturing the creative nature or landscape shots you desire.
* Dust and Splash Resistant does not guarantee that damage will not occur if this lens is subjected to direct contact with dust and water.
Video Support for Perfect Recording
Video support gives users everything they need for recording with their LUMIX camera. The lens offers stunningly responsive autofocus and smooth aperture changes to minimise exposure jumps. This top-level performance allows you to record beautiful, ultra-sharp 4K video. In addition, the silent design of the lens makes possible enhanced audio capture.
12 elements in 9 groups: – 3 aspherical lenses – 1 extra-low-dispersion lens – 1 ultra-high-refractive index lens
Aspherical (ASPH) lenses reduce sise and weight, effectively preventing spherical aberration and distortion.
An extra-low-dispersion (ED) lens corrects chromatic aberration to help render sharp, high-contrast images with clear Colours from corner to corner.
An ultra-high-refractive index (UHR) lens improves optical performance, reduces sise and weight, and helps deliver uniform, outstanding image quality from the centre to the edges of the image.
For lenses that are capable of compensating distortion, the horisontal axis of the MTF shows the distance from the centre of the corrected image.
The Lumix S PRO 16-35mm f/4 lens is a welcome addition to the growing portfolio of Panasonic L-mount lenses. It combines professional build quality and performance with a compact, relatively lightweight design, suitable for both stills and video.
