Its focal length of 12 - 35 mm (35 mm camera equivalent: 24 - 70 mm) covers wide-angle to standard to medium telephoto shooting. Not only ideal for capturing landscapes while travelling, this lens' wide diameter gives you top-quality indoor shots too. Depth and defocusing effects add to the features, giving you exactly the kind of photos and videos you're looking for. Its splash / dust / freezeproof design also makes it great for shooting outdoors, so you can use it in nearly any weather with a splash / dust / freezeproof LUMIX camera and be creative.
POWER O.I.S. - ultra-sharp photos:
Capture scenes carefree or at the spur of the moment. The optical image stabilization (O.I.S.) technology built directly into the lens ensures your photos will look great, with sharp blur-free contours across the entire picture.
Taking highly popular MEGA O.I.S. further, this advanced technology immediately compensates even large camera shake and vibrations that may occur in photography. So you can capture true-to-life scenes without the need for a tripod. In the end, you'll enjoy wonderfully crisp images.
Nano Surface Coating - clarity from all angles:
Put an end to unwanted ghosting and flaring - the Nano Surface Coating has been applied to lenses within the system. This special, ultra-thin coating was developed originally by Panasonic to reduce bothersome reflections across the entire light spectrum. The result: crystal-clear pictures even if you're photographing a light source in the dark.Video Support - perfect video-recording:
With video support any user has everything they need for recording with their LUMIX camera. Not only does it perform smooth aperture changes so there are no sudden jumps in exposure, it also boasts a silent design for enhanced capture of the scene's audio. What's more, the stunning AF performance of this lens records excellent 4K video, where precise focusing is essential.
Splash /Dust / Freezeproof:
Brave the elements in nearly any kind of weather or shooting location. This lens features a splash/dust/freezeproof construction* that is tough enough to withstand even heavy field use. It protects the lens system inside from sand, rain and more, making it perfect for shooting under harsh conditions. Now there is nothing holding you back from capturing the creative nature or landscape shots you want.
14 elements in 9 groups:
4 aspherical lenses
1 Ultra Extra-Low Dispersion
1 Ultra High Refractive Index lens
Aspherical (ASPH) lenses reduce size and weight, effectively preventing spherical and distortion aberration.
Ultra-high refractive index (UHR) lenses improve optical performance, reduce size and weight, and achieve uniform image quality from the center to the edges of the image.
Ultra Extra-Low Dispersion (UED) lenses correct chromatic aberration rendering sharp, high-contrast images with clear colors from corner to corner.
