Panasonic introduces new compact, lightweight LUMIX S 85mm F1.8 lens for its full-frame S Series cameras

From Panasonic: 4th November 2020 - Panasonic is pleased to introduce a new large-aperture medium-telephoto fixed focal length lens, the LUMIX S 85mm F1.8 (S-S85).

Based on the L-Mount system for LUMIX S Series full-frame mirrorless cameras, the 85mm F1.8 is the first out of four F1.8 large-aperture lenses Panasonic has announced it will be releasing. These four F1.8 lenses feature common size and position of control parts to provide practical advantages in use. The same filters can also be used due to identical diameters.

Comprising 9 elements in 8 groups, the use of 2 ED (Extra-low Dispersion) lenses effectively suppress both axial chromatic aberration and chromatic aberration of magnification. Panasonic S Series lenses pursue the beauty of bokeh and the LUMIX S 85mm F1.8 provides smooth defocus gradation from the focus peak to the neighbouring area of the image as well as smooth, round bokeh of point light source without vignetting. The LUMIX S 85mm F1.8 also excels in video recording performance with a mechanism that suppresses focus breathing. The filter diameter is 67 mm, with a 9-blade circular aperture diaphragm.

With its compact 355g (approx.) of light weight, the LUMIX S 85mm F1.8 is incredibly flexible. The rugged dust/splash-resistant* design withstands use under harsh conditions even at 10 degrees below zero.

In addition to the four planned F1.8 large-aperture lenses, A 70-300mm telephoto zoom lens is also under development to further enhance LUMIX S Series lens line-up. Panasonic and L-Mount system alliance are committed to the development of L-Mount lenses for the further expansion of its line-up to fulfil the needs of customers.
