An ultra-compact medium-telephoto lens designed for full-frame L-mount mirrorless cameras, the Lumix S 100mm f/2.8 Macro Lens from Panasonic offers a unique perspective for capturing portraits and detailed close-ups. Panasonic's incorporation of their dual phase linear motor system ensures high-speed autofocusing performance. Sporting a highly lightweight design, this lens weighs just 10.5 oz, making it ideal for traveling with. Chromatic and spherical aberrations are greatly reduced by the lens's construction, which includes three aspherical elements.

Dual Phase Linear Motor
A newly developed dual phase linear motor suppresses focus breathing and allows near-silent lens operation. Not only is this motor a benefit for still photography, it is also a great asset for capturing high-quality video.
Aside from providing high lens performance, this compact motor design reduces the overall size and allows for class-leading mobility.

Macro Design
A 1:1 magnification ratio and a minimum focusing distance of 8" is available for working with close-up subjects. The featured 9-bladed circular diaphragm creates flattering, round bokeh.
Focus bracketing with this lens allows you to capture images at multiple apertures and avoid an excessively shallow depth of field in your images.

Optical Design and Lens Construction
The Lumix S 100mm f/2.8 delivers crisp image sharpness while maintaining its compactness by incorporating three aspherical elements, two ultra extra-low dispersion elements, and one extra-low dispersion element. Additionally, this design greatly contributes to reducing chromatic and spherical aberrations.
Featured on the exterior of the lens is a focus mode switch for quickly alternating between auto and manual focus. Directly next to it is a focus range selector switch that allows you to choose between 0.204-0.5m, 0.5m-∞, and FULL.

Both dust- and splash-resistant, the Lumix S 100mm f/2.8 can operate at temperatures as low as 14°F.

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.
