Panasonic LUMIX S Series 85mm f/1.8 Mirrorless Lens for L-Mount

The LUMIX S 85mm f/1.8 is a large-aperture medium-telephoto fixed focal length lens, compatible with all L-mount cameras for maximum versatility. It enhances portrait photography with its beautiful bokeh effect in a compact and lightweight body. Comprising of 9 elements in 8 groups, the 2 ED (Extra-low Dispersion) lenses effectively suppress both axial chromatic aberration and chromatic aberration of magnification. The LUMIX S 85mm f/1.8 provides smooth defocus gradation from the focus peak to the neighboring area of the image as well as smooth, round bokeh of point light source without vignetting.
