The Panasonic LUMIX S PRO 70-200mm F2.8 Lens is an L-mount telephoto zoom characterized by a bright f/2.8 constant maximum aperture and sophisticated optical and focusing performance.
Developed to be the workhorse for events, portraiture, and other mid-length subjects this lens is a fast, high-quality telephoto zoom option for the expanding your L-Mount collection.
The optics layout incorporates several aspherical and low dispersion elements in order to minimize chromatic and spherical aberrations throughout the zoom range for higher clarity, sharpness, and accurate rendering.
Complementing the optics is a unique double focus system, which utilizes both a linear motor and a stepping motor, to provide especially fast and precise focusing performance. A focus clutch also enables especially quick switching between AF and MF settings for fine-tuned control. Additionally, an Optical Image Stabilizer reduces the effects of camera shake for sharper handheld shooting and the lens sports a weather-sealed design for use in harsh conditions.
An aspherical (ASPH) lens reduces sise and weight, effectively preventing spherical aberration and distortion.
Extra-low-dispersion (ED) and ultra-extra-low-dispersion (UED) lenses correct chromatic aberration to help render sharp, high-contrast images with clear Colours from corner to corner.
Capture what you see on the spur of the moment. Optical image Stabilisation (O.I.S.) technology built directly into the lens ensures your photos will look great, with sharp, blur-free contours across the entire image.
Designed for professional use in challenging outdoor conditions, this large-aperture telephoto zoom lens delivers F2.8 brightness throughout the zoom range. A double focus system minimises optical aberrations and ensures optimal expression at every distance, including up close. 5-Axis Dual I.S. 2* offers 7 stops of Stabilisation,** helping photographers capture those quick-moving moments with ultra-crisp realism.
It delivers uncompromising quality and expressive power throughout the zoom range and in every pixel of the image.
*5-Axis Dual I.S. 2 can be used with LUMIX S1R, S1 and S1H cameras (as of November 6, 2019).
**Based on the CIPA standard [Yaw/Pitch direction: focusing distance f=200mm], when LUMIX S1R/S1/S1H is used.
Outstanding maneuverability and durability make the LUMIX S PRO 70-200mm F2.8 O.I.S. an ideal choice for tough shooting conditions, for every type of weather and location. Dust-,* splash-,* and freeze-resistant construction protects the lens system from sand and rain, and allows you to work in temperatures as low as -10 °C. To support quick, intuitive control and help you get those rare shots, the lens features three focus buttons, and the focus clutch mechanism provides instant AF/MF shifting. In addition, the tripod adaptor features the widely used Arca-Swiss system. Outdoor photography involves many challenges. This lens empowers you to take them on.
*Dust and Splash Resistant does not guarantee that damage will not occur if this lens is subjected to direct contact with dust and water.
This lens offers stunningly responsive autofocus and smooth aperture changes to minimise exposure jumps. This top-level performance allows you to record beautiful, ultra-sharp 4K video. In addition, the silent design of the lens makes possible enhanced audio capture.
