It features an outstanding closest focusing distance of 0.105m allowing you to shoot true-to-life macro shots of flowers or small accessories.
The inclusion of a stepping motor makes the focusing action smooth and silent for use in both photo and video recording. When mounted on the LUMIX G cameras, you can take advantage of the high-speed, high-precision Contrast AF system with a 240 fps digital signal exchange, achieving high speed AF faster than approx. 0.5 sec (infinity – 0.105m).
Comprising of 9 lenses in 9 groups including an aspherical lens, the lens system achieves both high compactness and high optical performance. It incorporates a superior inner focus system that enables excellent resolution and contrast from full life-size magnification to infinity. Offered in sharp, metallic black, this lens stylishly matches the LUMIX G cameras.
The MEGA O.I.S. (Optical Image Stabilizer) effectively compensates for hand-shake movement making it easy to capture images clearly even if they are shot with small aperture.
Seven blades give the aperture a rounded shape that produces an attractively smooth effect in out-of-focus areas when shooting at larger aperture settings.
