The Panasonic Leica Elmarit 200mm F2.8 Power IOS lens is a new, compact and very light telephoto lens with Power Optical Image Stabilization. The lens is ideally suited for making 400mm (equivalent of 35mm camera) handheld shoots.
The Panasonic Leica Elmarit 200mm F2.8 Power IOS lens is the first large-diameter and fixed focal length ultra telephoto lens called Leica DG. It offers the sharpest image quality from corner to corner ever in the history of the Lumix G DSLM cameras. Due to its compact size and low weight, the lens is extremely mobile and allows handheld ultra-telephoto shoots.
The ultra-telephoto focal range of 400 mm and superb performance make the Panasonic Leica Elmarit 200mm F2.8 Power IOS lens especially suitable for nature and sports photography. With the included 1.4x teleconverter (DMW-TC14), the focus distance can be increased op to 560 mm (equivalent of 35mm camera) to get the subject even closer.
Thanks to the bright diaphragm of F2.8, fast moving subjects can be captured. The lens is robust, dust and splash proof and even frost resistant up to temperatures of -10 degrees Celsius, making it extremely suitable for professional use under extreme conditions.
Power Optical Image Stabilizer
The Power O.I.S. (Optical Image Stabilizer) effectively compensates blur caused by jitter, making it possible to record even without tripod or in low ambient light. The lens can be used with the Dual I.S. (Image Stabilizer) and the Dual I.S. 2 system when attached to an Lumix G DSLM camera from Panasonic. Thus, blur caused by jitter is even more powerful suppressed.
High resolution contrasting images
The lens system complies with Leicas strict quality requirements and consists out of 15 elements in 13 groups, including two UED (ultra Extra-low Dispersion) lenses. Using UED lenses and Panasonics advanced optical technology allow for high-resolution contrasting images from corner to corner, while distortion and chromatic aberration are suppressed. The lens features a triple linear motor system and a sensor drive with a speed of up to 240 fps, providing a fast and highly accurate contrast AF system for both photo and video recordings. This beautiful AF performance is ideal for making 4K videos because especially then accurate focusing is important. In addition, the drive system with micro-steps in the diaphragm control section helps the camera to quickly adapt to changes in brightness when panning.
