Introducing the Pana-Leica 200mm f2.8 beast
Compact and Lightweight Ultra-Telephoto
The highly mobile lens supports handheld ultra-telephoto shooting. The F2.8 aperture is designed for low light shooting at dusk or dawn, while the 200mm (35mm camera equivalent: 400mm) focal length is a staple for sports and wildlife photography. For even greater versatility, a bundled 1.4x Teleconverter extends focal length to 560mm (35mm equivalent) and the H-ES200 can also be used with the optional 2.0x Teleconverter (DMW-TC20) to extend focal length to 800mm (35mm equivalent)

Nano Surface Coating – Clarity From All Angles
With this new 200mm you can 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 your photographing a light source in the dark.
Power O.I.S. – Ultra Sharp Photos
Capture scenes carefree or at the spur of the moment. The optical image stabilisation (O.I.S.) technology built directly into the 200mm f2.8 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 larger 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.
Splash/Dust/Freezeproof – More Creative Options
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. *The lens supports this feature in conjunction with splash/dust/freezeproof LUMIX cameras.
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.
