New Panasonic Lumix Interchangeable Zoom Lens

  By Ryley Smith

 

Panasonic Lumix has released a new interchangeable telephoto zoom lens! The Lumix S 70-300mm F4.5-5.6 MACRO O.I.S! Based on the L-Mount system for the Lumix S Series Full-frame Digital Single Lens Mirrorless Camera, this lens focuses on the professional. With Lumix’s high-quality technology, this new lens brings uncompromising photographic expression!

The new Lumix S 70-300mm F4.5-5.6 MACRO O.I.S. boasts high descriptive performance and beautiful bokeh across the entire zoom range. It also provides high-speed, high-precision AF and Dual I.S. for agile mobility to be used in wide-ranging situations including sports, animals, portraits, and more.

Adopting the state-of-the-art optical technology, the S 70-300mm F4.5-5.6 MACRO O.I.S maximizes 17 lens elements in 11 groups, including 1 UED (Ultra Extra-low Dispersion) lens, 2 ED (Extra-low Dispersion) lenses and 1 UHR (Ultra-High Refractive Index). This effectively suppresses both axial chromatic aberration at the tele-end and chromatic aberration of magnification at the wide-end. Expanding further, the UHR lens achieves uniform image quality from the center to the edges of the image while contributing to the overall downsizing of the lens unit.

Combining the O.I.S.(Optical Image Stabilizer) in the lens and the Body I.S. in the LUMIX S Series camera, the Dual I.S.(Image Stabilizer) system powerfully compensates for the handshake in telephoto shooting, making it possible to use a 5.5-stop slower shutter speed. The focus control with a maximum 480 fps high-speed sensor drive realizes fast, high-precision AF. With an outstanding minimum focusing distance of 54cm and a maximum magnification of 0.5x (at 300mm), this lens produces stunning macro photography and videography. A circular aperture with an 11-bladed iris diaphragm provides beautifully rounded bokeh for the unfocused light. 

The Lumix S 70-300mm F4.5-5.6 MACRO O.I.S. is compact and lightweight for extreme mobility. The rugged dust and splash-resistant design withstand use under harsh conditions even at 10 degrees below zero. Additionally, the fluorine coating on the front element repels water and oil and prevents them from attaching.
