The LUMIX G X VARIO 45-150 mm/F4.0-5.6 Telephoto Zoom Lens Design
Panasonic's long time collaboration with Leica inspired a uniquely LUMIX in-house design for a premium lens series exclusively for LUMIX G Series Micro Four Thirds mirrorless cameras. With the Panasonic G X Vario 45 -150mm / f4.0-5.6 Lenses, LUMIX is blending its own unique mix of broadcast video and advanced mirrorless camera technologies into a premium lens line. In several X Series models LUMIX blended forward looking features like advanced near silent Power Zoom (PZ Models) and advanced POWER O.I.S. support for improved video capture.
The new Panasonic 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’s superior 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 silent for use in both video and photo recording. When mounted on the cameras of the LUMIX G line, users can also take advantage of the high-speed, high-precision AF (Auto Focus) System.
Comprised of 12 elements in nine groups, one UHR (Ultra High Refractive Index) lens and two aspherical lenses in the Panasonic 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’s 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.
