An Easy-to-Use Zoom that Goes All the Way to 400mm1
Capture natural-looking portraits in the medium telephoto range, or zoom all the way from 45mm to 200mm (35mm camera equivalent: 90mm-400mm) to move in and grab dynamic action shots at sports events. This zoom lens covers a huge amount of ground. And with 16 elements in 13 groups, including 3 ED lenses, it corrects various aberrations with excellent balance to deliver images of stunning power and beauty. The unique Inner Focusing system allows high-speed contrast AF, and the 7-blade circular aperture renders images with a beautiful soft focus.
Use the 45mm setting (35mm camera equivalent: 90mm) to take impressive landscape shots. With the 200mm setting (35mm camera equivalent: 400mm), the background appears as if it were right behind your subject, even when it is not. The telephoto zoom lets you adjust the way you capture your images, depending on the subject and your intent.
The LUMIX G VARIO 45-200mm/f4.0-5.6 with MEGA O.I.S. lens offers a zoom range of 45-200mm (35mm equivalent of 90-400mm) while achieving minimum aberration at all focal lengths, high-contrast representation and high color reproduction by implementing 3 ED lens elements. Notably, high contrast and resolution are assured for images shot at its wide-end, which means it is suitable for taking portraits. In addition, far away subjects like sports athletes or wildlife animals can be captured sharply even at tele-end.
Mega I.O.S. Improves Upon Image Stabilization
The LUMIX G VARIO 45-200mm/f4.0-5.6 lens incorporates Panasonic's Mega O.I.S. optical image stabilizer, 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 blurs associated to hand shake.
Circular Aperture Diaphragm Provides Professional Effects
Seven aperture blades give the aperture a rounded shape that, when shooting at larger aperture, produces an attractive smoothness in out-of-focus areas.
Highly Reliable Metal Mount
Designed for years and years of use on Cameras that see a lot of lens changes, this lens has a study, reliable Mount.
Multi-Coated Optics Provide Higher Accuracy
This new lens system uses multi-coated lens elements that reduce ghosts and flares to an absolute minimum, helping deliver high optical performance.
