Nano Surface Coating –
clarity from all angles
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
POWER O.I.S. –
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.
more creative options
Brave the elements in nearly any kind of weather or
shooting location. This lens features a
splash/dust/freezeproof construction* that is tough enough
to withstand even heavy field use. It protects the lens
system inside from sand, rain and more, making it perfect
for shooting under harsh conditions. Now there is nothing
holding you back from capturing the creative nature or
landscape shots you want.
*The lens supports this feature in conjunction with
splash/dust/freezeproof LUMIX cameras. Splash Proof is a term used
to describe an extra level of protection this lens offers against
exposure to a minimal amount of moisture, water or dust. Splash Proof
does not guarantee that damage will not occur if this lens is subjected
to direct contact with water.
Video Support –
With 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, the
stunning AF performance of this lens records excellent 4K
video, where precise focusing is essential.
