Panasonic Unveils Lumix S 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6 Macro O.I.S. Lens
Panasonic has introduced the Lumix S 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6 Macro O.I.S. lens for L-mount. The corporate says it boasts each excessive efficiency all through the zoom vary in addition to shut focusing capabilities which mix right into a well-rounded bundle.
Regardless of the comparatively sluggish and variable aperture, Panasonic appears assured within the lens’s efficiency, citing its wonderful sharpness and bokeh.
The 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6 makes use of “state-of-the-art optical technology” to align its 17 components in 11 teams, which incorporates one extremely extra-low dispersion component (UED), two extra-low dispersion components (ED), and one ultra-high refractive index (UHR) component. Panasonic says this mix successfully suppresses axial chromatic aberration on the telephoto finish in addition to the chromatic aberration of magnification on the extensive finish.
“Specifically, the UHR lens achieves uniform image quality from the center to the edges of the image, while contributing to an overall smaller configuration of the lens unit,” the corporate writes.
The aperture diaphragm is eleven-bladed with the purpose of reaching smoothly-rounded bokeh.
On the extensive finish, the 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6 has a minimal focusing distance of 0.54 meters (~21.3 inches) and achieves a most magnification of 0.5x at 300mm. This permits the lens to understand half lifesize macro photographs in each photograph and video purposes.
The O.I.S. within the lens title stands for Optical Picture Stabilization, which mixes with the in-body picture stabilization of Lumix S cameras to compensate at as much as 5.5 stops at 300mm.
Panasonic says the lens is light-weight and compact regardless of its massive zoom vary whereas additionally ruggedized with mud and splash resistance (not formally rated by an IP rating) and may stand up to circumstances as little as 14 levels Fahrenheit or -10 levels Celcius.
The 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6 may additionally attraction to video shooters because it has a mechanism that minimizes focus respiration, a characteristic that may be present in all Lumix S Sequence lenses. Moreover, Panasonic says that focus shift is suppressed throughout zooming whereas the corporate additionally guarantees distinctive zoom monitoring efficiency.
Lastly, Panasonic guarantees that extra L-mount lenses are on the way in which, together with three extra f/1.8 optics it says are “under development.”
