Product information

Use your Panasonic compact system camera to capture vivid telephoto images with total confidence. This tough metal bodied LUMIX G VARIO lens is right at home shooting HD video or capturing crisp long distance shots. Combined with advanced optical image stabilisation, it’s essential for wildlife and sports photographers.

Key features:

  • Track the action without disturbing your subjects. A versatile zoom range of 45-200mm (35mm camera equivalent: 90-400mm) is suitable for impressive telephoto shots of sports or animals.
  • Using 16 elements in 13 groups, three ED lenses, the LUMIX G VARIO 45-200mm achieves uniform image quality from the centre to the very corners of the frame. The result is a compact lens size that corrects aberrations and maintains edge-to-edge image quality.
  • This lens incorporates a superior inner focus system, which enables excellent resolution and contrast from full life-size magnification to infinity. A linear motor makes focusing smooth and silent whether shooting photo or video.
  • Seven aperture blades create a circular aperture diaphragm that produces an attractive smoothness in out-of-focus areas - even at higher aperture settings.
  • Splash and dust-proof design gives you the confidence to use out in the field.
