Panasonic has announced a new Micro Four Thirds interchangeable lens, the Lumix G 25 mm f/1.7 ASPH.
The company says it will be available in October, with final pricing to be announced.
Dangling a carrot in front of us, Panasonic also says it’s working on the first Leica DG 100-400 mm f/4.0-6.3 telephoto zoom lens (equivalent: 200-800 mm) for the Micro Four Thirds system.
The company notes Leica DG lenses are designed and developed in keeping with the stringent quality certification standards set by Leica.
The new zoom is claimed to achieve exceptional imaging performance over the entire zoom range. It features high speed digital signal exchange at 240 fps to comply with the high-speed, high-precision autofocus with DFD (Depth From Defocus) technology on the Lumix G camera. Together with the Power O.I.S. (Optical Image Stabilizer), the lens allows users to focus on a target quickly. In addition, the new lens is features a splash/dust-proof rugged design.
