Featuring an ultra-compact size and light weight body, the LUMIX G VARIO 45-150 mm / F4.0-5.6 ASPH. / MEGA O.I.S. lens offers a versatile zoom range of 45-150 mm (35 mm camera equivalent: 90-300 mm) providing a versatile medium zoom range for daily situations.
The LUMIX G VARIO 45-150 mm / F4.0-5.6 ASPH. / MEGA O.I.S. lens incorporates Panasonic's MEGA O.I.S. (Optical Image Stabilizer), which makes it easy to shoot super clear shots even in low-lit situations by suppressing the blur caused by a hand movement. The lens’ inner focus system enables excellent resolution and contrast from full life-size magnification to infinity and the inclusion of a stepping motor makes focusing action smooth and near silent for use in both video and photo recording. When used with the LUMIX G Micro System line, users can also take advantage of the high-speed, high-precision Contract AF (Auto Focus) System.
Comprised of 12 elements in nine groups, one UHR (Ultra High Refractive Index) lens and two aspherical lenses in the LUMIX G VARIO 45-150mm / F4.0-5.6 ASPH. / MEGA O.I.S. achieves uniform sharpness from the center to the corners for high optical performance.
The lens’ seven aperture blades produce an attractive smoothness in out-of-focus areas, even when shooting at large aperture. Additionally, a multi-coated lens element reduces ghost and flare, to deliver high optical performance.
