Panasonic LUMIX G X Vario Power Zoom 14-42mm f3.5-5.6 Power O.I.S. Lens (Silver)

A marvel of design and innovative technology, the Panasonic Lumix G X Vario PZ 14-42mm lens is by all means remarkable. The lens is a super-compact retractable zoom lens with size and weight of only 20cm. Being compact, it weighs just 3.35 oz./95g, which makes it easy to carry along, especially when you need to shoot on a safari or when you are doing wedding photography. The lens has high-performance specs, including an electric-powered zoom operation along with special autofocus during movie recording. The Panasonic Lumix G X Vario PZ 14-42mm (H-PS14042) is the world's first digital interchangeable power zoom lens.

Exclusive Nano Surface Coating

This lens provides you with superb images with crisp, clear, edge-to-edge contrast. The unique Nano Surface Coating minimizes flare, which results in a natural atmosphere with remarkable transparency.

Retractable Lens Barrel Design

The Panasonic premium lens has a retractable zoom; the lens boasts outstanding compactness. The zoom lever on the lens barrel gives the user stable zooming, while manual focusing allows more precise control.

Optical Image Stabilizer

The lens is equipped with optical image stabilization. This newly integrated feature makes it easy to shoot clear photos even in low light conditions, such as at night or indoors. The Power O.I.S suppresses slow movement efficiently.

Support for Light Speed AF

In tandem with LUMIX G Micro System cameras, this lens takes advantage of a convenient contrast AF system. It adopts an inner focus system driven by a stepping motor. The optics are designed with the extraordinary smoothness demanded of the high-speed AF systems of the LUMIX G series. Because of the downsizing of the focus lens and the amount of movement, the lens achieves approximately 0.1 second Light Speed AF when mounted to a LUMIX G camera. And since the aperture control is sped up, the shutter time lag is shortened by approximately 40 percent compared with the LUMIX G VARIO 14-42mm f/3.5-5.6 ASPH. MEGA O.I.S. lens.

Focus and Aperture Design

The Lumix G X Vario Power Zoom 14-42mm gets a minimum focus distance of 0.2m (14-20m) / 0.3m (21-42mm) and a maximum photographic magnification of 0.34x (35mm equivalent). The aperture design consists of 7 diaphragm blades in a circular aperture diaphragm. It gets impressive smoothness in the out-of-focus areas, even when you shoot at a large aperture.
