Characterised by its slender profile, the Lumix G 20mm f/1.7 II ASPH. from Panasonic is a compact, slightly wide 40mm equivalent prime for Micro Four Thirds mirrorless cameras. Its bright f/1.7 maximum aperture offers notable control focus for working with shallow depth of field techniques and also benefits working in difficult lighting conditions. The optical design incorporates a pair of aspherical elements to suppress spherical aberrations and distortion for high sharpness and accurate rendering, and individual elements have also been multi-coated to control surface reflections and flare for improved contrast in strong lighting conditions.

An amazingly sharp compact lens with superb brightness

This Lumix G 20mm f/1.7 II lens is an update to the original Lumix 20mm f/1.7 pancake lens made popular by Micro Four Thirds system photo enthusiasts because of its razor sharpness and compact size. The Lumix G 20mm f/1.7 II lens system is also designed to work with the Micro Four Thirds lens standard and is compatible with Panasonic Lumix G digital cameras.

A new metal finish replaces the original 20mm lenses resin body and combines with a durable metal mount for a sophisticated premium feel.

Optically the new The Lumix G 20mm f/1.7 II lens offers the same great performance with two aspherical lenses and a multi-coated lens surface for reduced ghosts and flaring.


High Speed f/1.7 Compact Single Focal LengthFOCAL LENGTHMeasured in mm, it is the distance from the focal point of a lens (its centre or curved mirror where light converges) to the plane of the image sensor (film) when an object is in focus. A shorter focal length lens sees a wider image and a longer focal length brings your subject closer. For example, a 15mm lens sees a very wide image and is perfect for landscape photography. Conversely, a 500mm lens sees a very narrow image, brings the subject much closer and is thus great for subjects that are far away, like a bird in a tree. With zoom lenses, its minimum and maximum focal lengths are indicated, for example, as 24-105mm. A zoom lens allows you to change the lens’ focal length, with shorter (wide-angle) and longer (telephoto) options, whereas a fixed focal length lens requires you to move back and forth to find the correct image composition.

Allowing a beautiful soft focus for photos to be even more impressive 2 aspherical lenses for a superb optical performance.


Features

  • Micro Four Thirds System
  • 40mm (35mm Equivalent)
  • ApertureAPERTUREAperture, shutter speed and ISO form what is known as the exposure triangle in photography. Aperture refers to an opening inside the lens, similar to the iris of your eye, that changes in diameter to control the amount of light that enters a camera. Aperture is expressed in f-stops: the lower the number, the larger the aperture, e.g. f/1.4 is larger than f/8. A larger (or wider) aperture allows more light to pass through the lens to the sensor (film) as a picture is taken, particularly useful in low-light conditions. A larger aperture also produces a shallower depth-of-field, and thus more background blur. Range: f/1.7 to f/16
