Panasonic Lumix S Pro 70-200mm f/4.0 O.I.S Lens
This telephoto zoom lens provides high-resolution, high-contrast images across the entire zoom range. It is a staple in any pro photographer’s kit, offering versatility in a wide range of applications from portraits to sports. The LUMIX 5-Axis Dual I.S. 2 system delivers powerful stabilisation performance to support handheld shooting at telephoto focal lengths.
A high-precision linear motor achieves sensor drive at a maximum speed of 480 fps for fast auto focusing, while a focus clutch mechanism enables instant AF/MF switching and accurate manual focusing. The lens also excels in video recording performance with a mechanism that suppresses focus breathing.
The lens unit comprises 23 lenses in 17 groups, and the use of an aspherical lens and 3 ED (Extra-low Dispersion) lenses effectively suppresses both axial chromatic aberration and chromatic aberration of magnification. The filter diameter is 77mm, with a 9-blade circular aperture diaphragm.
Through the L-Mount Alliance, Leica Camera, Panasonic and Sigma are set to offer a user-friendly solution that will allow photographers to ‘mix and match’ any of the three manufacturers’ APS-C and full-frame cameras with any lens from each other’s L-Mount product portfolios. The Alliance will provide customers with a diverse and future-proof range of products.
The L-Mount advantages are a large inner diameter of 51.6 mm that enables the realisation of extremely fast lenses and compact dimensions. The configuration of the lens-to-camera communication interface is future-proof and the L-Mount also offers an option for the construction of sealed systems that are resistant to dust and moisture. The L-Mount thereby opens up an almost limitless spectrum of new creative possibilities.
