Designed specifically for the Lumix G line of cameras, the Lumix G Vario 12-60 mm f/3.5-5.6 ASPH. / Power O.I.S. lens (24-120 mm equivalent) features a splash/dust-proof design and Dual I.S. (image stabilization).
Incorporating an inner focus drive system and a stepping motor, the lens is said to deliver smooth, silent operation to work with the camera’s high-speed, high-precision contrast AF system for both photo and video (including 4K) recording. It is also compatible with the sensor drive at max. 240 fps to take maximum advantage of cameras with high-speed AF.
A highly reliable metal mount assures durability for active use, and the lens uses multi-coated lens elements to minimize ghosts and flare.
It also features 0.54x (equivalent) magnification for macro shots.
Comprised of 11 elements in 9 groups, the lens system features three aspherical lenses and an ED (Extra-low Dispersion) lens which effectively suppresses spherical distortion or chromatic aberration to achieve stunning picture quality.
The Panasonic Lumix G Vario 12-60 mm f/3.5-5.6 ASPH. will be available in May.
