Get high F2.8 brightness over the entire zoom range with this high-speed zoom lens. Its focal length of 12-35mm (35mm camera equivalent: 24-70mm) covers wide-angle to standard to medium telephoto shooting. Not only ideal for capturing landscapes while travelling, but this lens's wide diameter also gives you top-quality indoor shots too. Perceptive and defocusing effects add to the features, giving you exactly the kind of photos and videos that you're looking for. Its splash/dust/freezeproof design also makes it great for shooting outdoors, so you can use it in nearly any weather with a weather-sealed LUMIX camera and be creative.
Ultra sharp photos
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.
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 dark.
Perfect video recording
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.
Brave the elements in nearly any kind of weather or shooting location. This lens features a weather-sealed 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.
14 elements in 9 groups
- 4 Aspherical lenses
- Ultra Extra-Low Dispersion lens
- 1 Ultra High Refractive Index lens
Aspherical (ASPH) lenses reduce size and weight, effectively preventing spherical and distortion aberration.
Ultra-high refractive index (UHR) lenses improve optical performance, reduce size and weight, and achieve uniform image quality from the centre to the edges of the image.
Ultra Extra-Low Dispersion (UED) lenses correct chromatic aberration rendering sharp, high-contrast images with clear colours from corner to corner.
