For even more powerful zooming, use the 200mm setting (35mm camera equivalent: 400mm). The telephoto zoom lets you adjust the way you capture your images, depending on your subject and creativity. This lens provides well-balanced correction of various aberrations while producing high image quality.
Brave the elements in nearly any kind of weather or shooting location. This lens features a splash/dustproof 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/dustproof LUMIX cameras.
Capture scenes carefree or at the spur of the moment. The optical image stabilization (O.I.S.) technology built directly into the 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 large 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.
