Product Description

Panasonic Lumix S Series 70-200mm f4 - L mount Lens

Covering a versatile and popular range of focal lengths, the Lumix S PRO 70-200mm f/4 O.I.S. from Panasonic is an L-mount telephoto zoom featuring an f/4 constant maximum aperture. The sophisticated optical design is employed, which incorporates a series of aspherical, low dispersion, and high refractive index elements, to control a variety of aberrations, colour fringing, and distortion for sharp, clear, well-corrected imagery throughout the zoom range. Complementing the optics is a unique double focus system, which utilises both a linear motor and a stepping motor, to provide especially fast and precise focusing performance. Additionally, an Optical Image Stabiliser reduces the effects of camera shake for sharper handheld shooting and the lens sports a weather-sealed design for use in harsh conditions

Telephoto zoom is designed for full-frame L-mount mirrorless cameras, however, can also be used with APS-C models where it provides a 105-300mm equivalent focal length range.

Constant f/4 maximum aperture maintains consistent illumination throughout the zoom range.

One aspherical element and one ultra-high refractive index element help to minimize distortions and spherical aberrations throughout the zoom range in order to maintain edge-to-edge sharpness and illumination.

One ultra extra-low dispersion element and three extra-low dispersion elements greatly reduce chromatic aberrations and colour fringing in order to produce a high degree of clarity and colour accuracy.

A double focus system employs both a linear motor and a stepping motor to deliver impressively fast, precise, and quiet autofocus performance.

Optical Image Stabilizer minimizes the appearance of camera shake for sharper handheld shooting and also supports the Dual I.S. and Dual I.S. 2.0 functions for increased stabilization performance.

Splash, dust, and freezeproof design benefits working in inclement weather conditions down to -14°F.

Rounded nine-blade diaphragm contributes to a pleasing bokeh quality.

Removable rotating tripod collar is included and benefits working with the lens atop a tripod or monopod.

Understanding: Aperture

Aperture is the opening in a camera lens that controls how much light enters the camera. It's measured in f-stops like f/2.8 or f/8. Lower f-stop numbers mean wider openings, letting in more light and creating a shallow depth of field (blurry background). Higher f-stop numbers mean smaller openings, letting in less light and creating a larger depth of field (more of the scene in focus). Aperture also affects the quality of out-of-focus areas in the image (bokeh).

Understanding: Lens Types

Different lenses have different purposes to achieve different styles of images, some popular ones include:
Prime Lens: Fixed focal length, sharp images, great for portraits and dark settings.
Zoom Lens: Variable focal length, versatile for different shots and everyday use..
Wide-Angle Lens: Captures wide scenes like landscapes.
Telephoto Lens: Magnifies distant subjects, ideal for sports & wildlife.
Macro Lens: Perfect for close-up photography of small subjects.
Fisheye Lens: Ultra-wide perspective, creates unique images.

Understanding: Lens Mounts

Different camera brands use different lens mounts, which are like connectors that attach lenses to camera bodies. Each mount is specific to a particular brand and camera series. For example, Canon uses the EF and RF mounts, Nikon uses the F mount, Sony uses the E mount for its mirrorless cameras. These mounts dictate which lenses are compatible with which cameras. Some brands offer adapters to use lenses from other systems, but it's essential to ensure compatibility for proper functionality and autofocus performance.

Understanding: Manual and Autofocus

Manual focus and autofocus are two ways to adjust the sharpness of a camera lens. With manual focus, you turn a ring on the lens to bring the subject into focus yourself, giving you full control over what appears sharp in the image. Autofocus, on the other hand, relies on the camera's built-in technology to automatically adjust the focus for you, usually by detecting contrast or phase differences in the scene. Autofocus can be convenient, especially for fast-moving subjects or when you need to capture a quick shot, whereas manual focus allows for precise adjustments and creative control over the final image.
