Compatible with Lumix G cameras’ Dual I.S. function, it employs sensor-shift and lens-shift stabilization methods for optimal stability, particularly at longer focal lengths.
  3. High-Speed AF Motor: Capture fast-paced moments with ease using the 240 fps high-speed AF motor. This motor ensures quiet, precise, and rapid focusing, making it suitable for both stills and video applications. The focus limiter function allows you to customize the focusing range for even quicker performance.
  4. Close-Up Photography: With a minimum focusing distance of 4.3′ and a maximum magnification of 0.5x, this lens excels in close-up photography. The versatile focus limiter lets you choose focusing distances from the minimum to infinity or from 16.4′ to infinity.
  5. Weather-Resistant Design: Embrace outdoor photography with confidence. The lens boasts a gapless construction that makes it dust- and moisture-resistant, ensuring durability in various environmental conditions.
  6. Intuitive Handling: The lens is designed for intuitive handling with features like a quick-shift rotating tripod collar for seamless orientation changes, an integrated hide-away lens hood for flare prevention, and a zoom ring lock to prevent lens creep during transportation.
