Panasonic 14-42mm f/3.5-5.6 ASPH O.I.S Lens (Black)
For all your photo assignments, this ultra-compact lens is a must-have in your photo-taking gear. Its retractable optics increases your mobility while delivering smooth zooming and blur-free video recording.
Smooth Zoom, Perfect For Video
You can capture sharp wide-angle to medium telephoto scenes at a focal distance of about 3x in all kinds of shooting situations: landscapes, daily goings-on, or portraits. And revel in fantastic, high-image-quality results.
Optical Image Stabilisation Technology
Capture scenes carefree or at the spur of the moment. The optical image stabilisation (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.
Nano Surface Coating Clarity From All Angles
To put an end to unwanted ghosting and flaring, this lens features Nano Surface Coating within the system. This special, ultra-thin coating was developed originally by Panasonic to reduce bothersome reflections across the entire light spectrum.
This lens features Power Zoom which consists of a fully automatic, integrated motor that drives the zoom function making for easy zoom operation. This is especially great to have when recording a video: for example, you can determine the speed of the zoom so that you can capture subjects precisely even when zooming slowly. The motor is also whisper-quiet for more enjoyable, subtle shooting.
HD Video Support Perfect Video-Recording
With HD video support any user has everything they need for recording with their LUMIX camera. Not only does it perform smooth aperture changes so there are no sudden jumps in exposure, it also boasts a silent design for enhanced capture of the scene's audio. What's more, it offers excellent tracking performance so you won't miss a moment of action.
