DIS, Vienna 24th April 2013– Panasonic has launched the LUMIX G VARIO 14-140mm/F3.5-5.6 ASPH./POWER O.I.S lens, an interchangeable lens suitable for shooting everything from vast, open landscapes to action packed sports photos.
The new lens includes 10x optical zoom, comes in a stylish compact, metal body and is designed specifically for Digital Single Lens Mirrorless LUMIX G cameras and the Micro Four Thirds System standard. It is also compatible with the sensor drive at max.240 fps to take maximum advantage of cameras with high-speed AF such as the LUMIX DMC-GH3 and the new LUMIX DMC-G6.
The LUMIX G VARIO 14-140mm (35mm equivalent focal length: 28-280mm) is also optimized for HD video recording and is perfect for capturing crisp, blur-free images when shooting sporting events and other distant subjects.
