Standard Zoom Lens
Starting from 24mm wide angle (35mm camera equivalent), the Panasonic 12-32mm f3.5-5.6 Micro Four Thirds Lens is suitable for capturing a variety of scenes.
High Image Quality
Comprising of eight lenses in seven groups, the new lens system adopts three aspherical lenses to achieve reduction of substantial length of lens unit while maintaining the optical performance. The ED (Extra-low Dispersion) lens also minimizes chromatic aberration to corners at entire zoom range. To pursue further downsizing, every lens element is designed as slim as possible and located in minimum margin while using the fourth and fifth lens group as an O.I.S. (Optical Image Stabilizer) lens unit by shifting itself, which is integrated in the Lumix G digital interchangeable lens for the first time.
Optical Image Stabilizer
Panasonic's MEGA O.I.S. (Optical Image Stabilizer) makes it easy to shoot super clear shots even at tele end or in low-lit situations by suppressing the blur caused by a hand shake.
240 fps Drive Capability
The Panasonic 12-32mm lens is compatible with the sensor drive at max. 240 fps to take full advantage of cameras with a high-speed AF. An inner focus drive system and stepping motor for smooth, silent operation work with the camera's high-speed, high-precision contrast AF system for both photo and video recording. (Sensor drive performance varies depending on the camera.)
With its minimum focus distance of 0.20m (12-20 mm) / 0.30 m (21-32 mm) even at full zoom, the new lens provides a maximum photographic magnification of 0.13x (35 mm camera equivalent: 0.26x).
