Designed for professional use in challenging outdoor conditions, this large-aperture telephoto zoom lens delivers F2.8 brightness throughout the zoom range. A double focus system minimizes optical aberrations and ensures optimal expression at every distance, including up close. 5-Axis Dual I.S. 2* offers 7 stops of stabilization,** helping photographers capture those quick-moving moments with ultra-crisp realism.
As a member of the LUMIX S PRO series, LUMIX S PRO 70-200 mm F2.8 O.I.S meets all stringent LEICA standards. It delivers uncompromising quality and expressive power throughout the zoom range and in every pixel of the image.
* 5-Axis Dual I.S. 2 can be used with LUMIX S1R, S1 and S1H cameras (as of November 6, 2019). ** Based on the CIPA standard [Yaw/Pitch direction: focusing distance f=200 mm], when LUMIX S1R/S1/S1H is used. • Leica is a registered trademark of Leica Microsystems IR GmbH.
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 minimize 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.
Compatible with Teleconverters (sold separately)
LUMIX S PRO 70-200 mm F2.8 O.I.S. shines in a wide focal length range, from 70 mm mid-telephoto to 200 mm telephoto. This flexibility makes it an excellent choice for multiple subjects and uses, including sports, wildlife, and even portraits. Teleconverters (sold separately) can extend its range even further, up to 280 mm (DMW-STC14, 1.4 x) or 400 mm (DMW-STC20, 2 x).
• Use of the teleconverter reduces the effective aperture by one f/stop (DMW-STC14) or two f/stops (DMW-STC20).
Maneuverability — More Creative Options
Outstanding maneuverability and durability make the LUMIX S PRO 70-200 mm F2.8 O.I.S. an ideal choice for tough shooting conditions, for every type of weather and location. Dust-,* splash-,* and freeze-resistant construction protects the lens system from sand and rain, and allows you to work in temperatures as low as -10 °C. To support quick, intuitive control and help you get those rare shots, the lens features three focus buttons, and the focus clutch mechanism provides instant AF/MF shifting. In addition, the tripod adaptor features the widely used Arca-Swiss system. Outdoor photography involves many challenges. This lens empowers you to take them on.
* Dust and Splash Resistant does not guarantee that damage will not occur if this lens is subjected to direct contact with dust and water.
O.I.S. (Optical Image Stabilizer) for Ultra-Sharp Photos
Capture what you see on the spur of the moment. Optical image stabilization (O.I.S.) technology built directly into the lens ensures your photos will look great, with sharp, blur-free contours across the entire image.
22 elements in 17 groups: – 1 aspherical lens – 2 ultra-extra-low-dispersion lenses – 3 extra-low-dispersion lenses
An aspherical (ASPH) lens reduces size and weight, effectively preventing spherical aberration and distortion.
Extra-low-dispersion (ED) and ultra-extra-low-dispersion (UED) lenses correct chromatic aberration to help render 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.
