LUMIX S PRO 70-200mm F4 O.I.S

Panasonic has announced 3 new lenses for its newly released line of full-frame mirrorless cameras, the S1 & S1R

All the lenses feature a weather-resistant design, quick switch between focus modes and are designed for photo and video work. 

Panasonic says it hopes to have 10 or more lenses developed, with a focus on S PRO models, by 2020. 

From Panasonic:

Designed for versatile use

  • Weather-resistant design
  • Quick switch between Focus modes
  • Designed for photo- and video-work

All three S lenses have a rugged dust/splash*-resistant design to withstand use under harsh conditions even in 10 degrees below zero to match the professional level of the S1 and S1R cameras.

The focus element of the lenses is moved by motors with a sophisticated design, supporting the high frequency of the S-System sporting up to 480 frames per second.

For ultimate control, the PRO lenses have a focus clutch mechanism allowing instant switching from autofocus to manual adjustment at any time.

The LUMIX S-lenses also excel when used for video as they are designed to suppress focus breathing during recording.

*Dust and Splash Resistant does not guarantee that damage will not occur if this lens is subjected to direct contact with dust and water.

All the lenses will be available from 18 March 2019:

  • 50mm f/1.4 - £2299.99
  • 70-200mm f/4 O.I.S - £1749.99

LUMIX PRO 50mm F1.4

LUMIX S PRO 50mm f/1.4 (S-X50)

  • Large aperture f/1.4
  • 11-bladed iris for exceptional bokeh
  • Outstanding sharpness across the frame

At the core of the LUMIX S lens series is the new LUMIX S PRO 50mm F1.4. A large-aperture lens with a focal length considered ‘standard’ for the full frame format, the LUMIX S PRO 50mm F1.4 boasts stunningly high resolution and incredible sharpness from centre to corner even when used wide open. The optical design and the use of an 11-bladed iris provide beautifully smooth focus transition and exceptionally attractive bokeh.

Comprising 13 elements in 11 groups, 2 aspherical lenses and 3 extra-low Dispersion lenses are used to avoid chromatic aberrations and to ensure outstanding resolution centre to corner.

 

LUMIX S PRO 70-200mm f/4 O.I.S. (S-R70200)

  • Sport, action and wildlife lens
  • 6-Stop image stabilisation
  • Beautiful bokeh

The LUMIX S PRO 70-200mm F4 O.I.S. telephoto zoom lens provides high-resolution, high-contrast images across the entire zoom range. Designed to be used in a wide range of situations, from portraits to sports, the lens is compatible with Panasonic’s 5-Axis Dual I.S. 2 system*1 and offers 6 stops of image stabilisation*2 – a first for a full-frame mirrorless camera system.

9 aperture blades create a circular opening for attractive out-of-focus highlights. The optical performance of this LUMIX S PRO lens is outstanding to comply with stringent Leica standards.

The construction comprises 23 elements in 17 groups and uses a single aspherical lens and 3 extra-low Dispersion lenses to minimise chromatic aberrations and maximise sharpness. It achieves a beautiful bokeh and minimal vignetting.

*1 5-Axis Dual I.S. 2 can be used with the camera LUMIX S1R and S1, as of February 1, 2019.
*2 Based on the CIPA standard [Yaw/Pitch direction: focusing distance f=200mm, when LUMIX S1R is used.

LUMIX S 24-105mm f/4 MACRO O.I.S. (S-R24105)

  • Perfect general purpose lens
  • 0.5x magnification macro shooting
  • 6-Stop image stabilisation

The LUMIX S 24-105mm F4 MACRO O.I.S. is a versatile standard zoom lens covering wide-angle to medium-telephoto focal lengths. It assures excellent sharpness across the entire zoom range and is useful for many applications from landscapes to portraiture. It is also perfect for close-up and macro work, offering 0.5 x magnification and a closest focus distance of merely 0.3 m. 

Combining the Optical Image Stabilizer (O.I.S) with the Body Image Stabilization system of the LUMIX S1 and S1R cameras allows 5-Axis Dual I.S. 2 technology to offer up to 6 stops of compensation*1.

The lens comprises 16 elements in 13 groups and uses two aspherical lenses and two extra-low Dispersion elements to avoid chromatic aberration and achieve high degrees of detail resolution.
