Thanks to the sophisticated design of these lenses, you will enjoy brilliant clarity all the way to the edges of your photos. At the same time, distortions of all kind are prevented to enable precise, sharp picture rendering. This means you have the ideal tool for pro-level images in the palm of your hand.

Versatile high performance

Get high F2.8 brightness over the entire zoom range with this compact zoom lens. Its focal length of 12-35mm (35mm camera equivalent: 24-70mm) covers wide-angle to standard to medium telephoto shooting. Ideal for everything from capturing landscapes while traveling to top-quality snapshots. Leverage the low-light performance of F2.8 and enjoy delightful bokeh and superior closeups. Outdoors, the dust/splash/freeze-resistant design makes it ideal for creativity in nearly any conditions.

Superb close-up performance

Utilizes a maximum magnification of 0.42x* and a closest focusing distance of 0.15m**, for excellent close-ups of everything from flowers to insects to table settings.

Special technology for crystal-clear images

Panasonic’s Nano Surface Coating minimizes unwanted ghosting and flaring, reducing the reflection of light rays across the entire light spectrum for crystal-clear images. And special glass eliminates unwanted light to minimize ghosting and flare even more powerfully.

O.I.S. for ultra-sharp photos

Capture what you see on the spur of the moment. Optical image stabilization (O.I.S.) technology built directly into the lens ensures your photos will look great, with sharp, blur-free contours across the entire image.

Ideal for video recording

The lens offers fast, accurate autofocus and smooth aperture changes, critical for the modern content creator, allowing you to record beautiful 4K video and stills without disturbing your subject.
