Premium lens design

Comprising of 9 lenses in 8 groups, the lens system features excellent contrast at entire zoom range. The inclusion of 4 aspherical lenses that help achieving the downsizing of lens unit also improve optical performance by minimising distortion, even at the 28mm wide end. The 2 ED lenses effectively compensate for the chromatic aberration.

Compact retractable lens barrel design

Although the lens is not a single focus length lens but is a zoom lens, the retractable-type zoom lens boasts outstanding compactness to realise ultra-high mobility. Notably, the astonishingly short overall length is realised by the inclusion of 4 aspherical lenses. The zoom lever on the lens barrel gives user a stable zooming while manual focusing is also available with manual focus lever for more precise control.

POWER O.I.S.

The POWER O.I.S. (Optical Image Stabiliser) which is integrated in the Lumix G X Vario PZ 14-42mm/F3.5-5.6 ASPH./POWER O.I.S. lens makes it easy to shoot super clear shots even in low-lit situations such as in night time or indoors. With the improved sensitivity of the gyro sensor, the POWER O.I.S. suppresses large, slow movement.

Support for Light Speed AF

When mounted on the cameras of Lumix G Micro System, users can take advantage of the contrast AF system and the convenient functions applied from it. Adopting an inner focus system driven by a stepping motor, the superior optical design realises outstanding smoothness to support the high speed AF system of Lumix G cameras. It achieves approx. 0.1 second Light Speed AF, thanks to the downsizing of focus lens and its amount of movement.

Focus and aperture design

With its minimum focus distance of 0.2m (14-20mm)/0.3m (21-42mm), the lens provides a maximum photographic magnification of 0.34× (35mm equivalent). 7 aperture blades consists a circular aperture diaphragm and produces an attractive smoothness in out-of-focus areas even when shooting at large aperture.

Exclusive Nano Surface Coating

Crystallising Panasonic’s optical technologies, the “X” lens features superb image rendering for lifelike textures, crisp edge-to-edge contrast and natural atmospheres with remarkable transparency. Plus, Nano Surface Coating technology is adopted to minimise the reflection at entire visual light range (380nm-780nm) by applying the extra-low refractive index coating with nano-sized structure on the surface of the lens. It results in the super clear picture with dramatic reduction of ghost and flare.
