Panasonic Lumix G Vario 14-42mm F/3.5-5.6 ASPH OIS Lens
The Panasonic Lumix G Vario 14-42mm F/3.5-5.6 ASPH OIS is a wide to short telephoto zoom designed for cameras with a Four-Thirds (2X) sensor. This variable-aperture zoom covers a 14mm to 42mm focal-range. It provides the same field of view as a 28-84mm lens on a Full-Frame camera. An optical Image Stabilization System built into this lens compensates for camera shake.
This zoom can focus down to 30cm from the imaging plane which gives it a maximum magnification of 0.16X. The lens offers a Quick-Shift AF system which lets the user simply rotate the focus-ring to focus manually. A built-in focus motor is used to set the focus-distance. It allowed Panasonic to optimize the motor precisely for this lens in order to maximize performance.
This lens is only available for Micro Four-Thirds. Follow this link for all current compatible digital cameras: Micro Four-Thirds mount cameras.
