Panasonic has unveiled today a new telephoto zoom interchangeable lens designed specifically for the cameras compatible with Micro Four Thirds System standard. The new LUMIX G VARIO 45-200mm/F4.0-5.6/MEGA O.I.S. lens offers a zoom range of 45-200mm (35mm equivalent: 90-400mm) while achieving minimum aberration at all focal length, high-contrast representation and high colour reproduction by implementing 3 ED lens elements.
The new LUMIX G VARIO 45-200mm/F4.0-5.6/MEGA O.I.S. lens incorporates Panasonic’s Mega O.I.S. optical image stabiliser, which makes it easy to shoot super clear shots even in telephoto shooting or in low-lit situations without using a tripod by suppressing the blur caused by a hand shake. When the lens is mounted on the newly announced Lumix G Micro System DMC-G1 camera, you can use the contrast AF system, which is implemented in the DMC-G1 to offer a wide variety of convenient functions.
Seven aperture blades give the aperture a rounded shape that, when shooting at larger aperture, produces an attractive smoothness in out-of-focus areas. Featuring a highly reliable metal mount, the new lens system uses multi-coated lens elements that reduce ghosts and flare to an absolute minimum, helping deliver a high optical performance.
