Product Description

The Lumix G Vario 14-42mm / F3.5-5.6 II ASPH. / MEGA O.I.S. lens for Lumix G based on the Micro Four Thirds standard offers a versatile zoom range of 14-42mm (35mm camera equivalent: 28-84mm) suitable for a wide range of situations from landscape to portrait. It’s also ultra-compact and lightweight, so it makes a great addition to any photographer’s camera bag.

Comprising of 9 elements in 8 groups, the Lumix G Vario 14-42mm / F3.5-5.6 II ASPH. / MEGA O.I.S. lens adopts 2 aspherical lenses to achieve a reduction of both size and weight yet maintaining its high optical performance across the entire zoom range.

The Lumix G Vario 14-42mm / F3.5-5.6 II ASPH. / MEGA O.I.S. lens incorporates Panasonic's MEGA O.I.S. (Optical Image Stabilizer), which makes it easy to shoot super clear shots even in low-lit situations by suppressing the blur caused by a hand shake.

With its minimum focus distance of 0.2 m (14-20 mm) / 0.3 m (21-42 mm) even at full zoom, the this lens provides a maximum photographic magnification of 0.17x (35 mm camera equivalent: 0.34x). The 7 aperture blades create a circular aperture diaphragm and produces an attractive smoothness in out-of-focus areas even when shooting at a large aperture.

Designed to compensate for hands-shake ‘blur’, the MEGA O.I.S’s internal LSI compensates by processing the output of the gyrosensors at approximately 4,000 times a second. What you see in the Live View Finder or LCD image is what you get in the shot (especially effective when using a zoom lens).
