Panasonic Lumix G X Vario PZ 45-175mm f/4-5.6 ASPH Power OIS Lens

Spanning a versatile telephoto range, the Lumix G X Vario 45-175mm f/4-5.6 ASPH. Power O.I.S. from Panasonic is a 90-350mm equivalent lens designed for Micro Four Thirds mirrorless cameras. The lens's optical design includes a pair of aspherical elements and a pair of extra-low dispersion elements, which help to control aberrations, distortion, and colour fringing in order to realise a sharp, colour-accurate image quality, and a floating elements system is also used to maintain clarity throughout the zoom and focus ranges. A Nano Surface Coating has also been applied to suppress lens flare and ghosting for greater contrast when working in harsh lighting conditions.

Crystallising Panasonic's optical technologies, the new "X" lens features superb image rendering for lifelike textures, crisp edge-to-edge contrast, a unique Nano Surface Coating for minimal ghosts and flaring and natural atmospheres with remarkable transparency.


Multi-Actuator Floating Inner Focus System

The Industry's first adoption of Multi-Actuator Floating Inner Focus System* which controls 3 lens groups separately by the individual actuator achieves downsizing in both size and weight. It also achieves high descriptive performance for resolution and contrast at entire zoom range 45-175mm (35mm camera equivalent: 90-350mm) without changing the overall length.

*For a digital interchangeable zoom lens as of August 26, 2011.


New X Series Compact Hybrid Design

Although the Lumix G X Vario 45-175mm f/4-5.6 ASPH. Power O.I.S. covers long zoom range from standard to telephoto, it boasts outstanding compactness with approx. 90.0 mm in length and approx. 210g in weight to realize ultra-high mobility. Notably, the astonishingly short overall length is realized by the inclusion of 2 aspherical lenses. The zoom lever allows stable zooming with ease even when shooting moving subject.

The new Lumix G X Vario 45-175mm f/4-5.6 ASPH. Power O.I.S. lens offers a versatile zoom range of 45-175 mm (35 mm camera equivalent: 90-350 mm). Notably high contrast and resolution are assured for images shot at its wide-end, which means it is suitable for taking a portrait. In addition, subject distant away like sports or wildlife animal can be captured sharply even at tele-end.


ED Glass and Exclusive Nano Surface Coating

The lens system features the inclusion of 2 ED lenses, which suppress chromatic aberration, contributing to high descriptive performance at entire zoom range. Plus, Panasonic's Nano Surface Coating technology is adopted to minimize the reflection at the 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 a dramatic reduction of ghost and flare.


Featuring POWER O.I.S.

The Power O.I.S. (Optical Image Stabiliser) which is newly integrated into the Lumix G X Vario 45-175mm/F4.0-5.6 ASPH. Power O.I.S. 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 new Power O.I.S. suppresses large, slow movement 2x more effectively**.

**Compared with the conventional MEGA O.I.S.


Rapid Focusing Support and Circular Aperture Diaphragm

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 realizes outstanding smoothness to support the Light Speed AF of approx. 0.15 second***. By speeding up the aperture control, a shutter time lag is also shortened by approx. 20% compared with the Lumix G Vario 45-200mm f/4-5.6 MegaO.I.S..****

***The time for focusing on the subject is measured with the DMC-GF3 to move the lens position to "2m" from "infinity" position at wide-end. The firmware of the GF3 must be updated to Ver.1.1 or later. Panasonic measurement method.

****Measured with DMC-GF3. The time required to start exposure after the shutter button is fully pressed after the lens position is moved from "infinity" to "2m" at wide-end. The firmware of the GF3 must be updated to Ver.1.1 or later. Panasonic measurement method.


Two Lens Barrel Colour Options

Offering more fashionable, sophisticated look with two colour option of black and silver, the new Lumix G X Vario 45-175mm f/4-5.6 ASPH. Power O.I.S. perfectly matches any colour of cameras from Lumix G Micro System to be a part of the photographic life.
