A redesigned replacement of the fast standard zoom, this Panasonic Leica DG Vario-Elmarit 12-35mm f/2.8 ASPH. O.I.S. Micro Four Thirds Lens features a variety of optical upgrades for photo and video applications alike. The most well-rounded standard zoom to date, this compact and versatile lens provides a convenient 24-70mm full-frame equivalent focal length range for covering wide-angle to portrait-length perspectives.
A bright f/2.8 constant aperture allows users to capture images in dim lighting conditions and with a shallow depth of field, and a unique Nano Crystal Coating further reduces less flare and ghosting when shooting under strong light sources. The lens features a POWER Optical Image Stabilizer to minimize the appearance of camera shake, and this O.I.S. system is also compatible with Dual I.S. for enhanced stabilization performance during handheld shooting.
Redesigned Professional Quality
A redesigned replacement of the Lumix G X Vario 12-35mm f/2.8 II ASPH. POWER O.I.S. lens, this professional-quality zoom has passed the stringent optical standards of Leica. Standard zoom for Micro Four Thirds mirrorless cameras, this compact and lightweight lens provides a 24-70mm full-frame equivalent focal length range.
Bright and Versatile
Bright f/2.8 constant maximum aperture allows users to capture images in dim lighting conditions and with a shallow depth of field. Updated Nano Crystal Coating further reduces less flare and ghosting when shooting under strong light sources. Four aspherical elements, one ultra extra-low dispersion element, and one ultra high refractive index element all contribute to minimizing chromatic and spherical aberrations in order to produce a higher degree of clarity, sharpness, and color accuracy.
Optical Image Stabilization and Close-Up Performance
POWER Optical Image Stabilizer minimizes the appearance of camera shake for sharper handheld shooting while also supporting the Dual I.S. function for increased stabilization performance. Improved close-up performance provides a minimum focusing distance of 5.9" at focal lengths of 12-17mm. Minimum focusing distance of 9.8" at focal lengths of 18-35mm.
Enhanced Video Features
Updated with a series of attributes that appeal to video shooters' needs, this lens minimizes focus breathing to prevent unwanted movements and angle of view variations for greater compositional accuracy during recording. Micro-step aperture control provides for smooth exposure changes during video recording.
Splash, dust, and freezeproof design benefits working in inclement weather conditions. Rounded seven-blade diaphragm contributes to a smooth and pleasing bokeh quality.
