Panasonic H-HS12035 LUMIX G X VARIO 12-35mm/F2.8 ASPH X Series Lens
Photography Pros Appreciate X Vario Technology
The Panasonic LUMIX G X VARIO camera lens represents the next natural step in design and build for digital interchangeable zoom lenses. A first for the LUMIX G Series, the G VARIO constant with F2.8 zoom is suitable for professionals and enthusiasts alike. You can focus on a wide range of scenes from dynamic landscapes to studio lit portraits. Panasonic’s long time collaboration with LEICA inspired an exclusive X Series design. With the X Series Lenses, LUMIX blends its own unique mix of broadcast video and advanced mirrorless camera technologies into a premium lens line. Featuring professional grade aperture in a compact body, use it in your professional studio photography.
Professional Grade Glass for Great Images in Various Shooting Conditions
The LUMIX G X VARIO interchangeable lens system is comprised of 14 elements in 9 groups. The UED (Ultra Extra-Low Dispersion) glass minimizes chromatic aberration while the UHR (Ultra High Refractive) lens realizes high descriptive performance from corner to corner. Featuring high contrast and resolution within the entire zoom range – the X VARIO lens highlights intricate details that command your attention lending a true-to-life portrait perspective in almost any scene. Advanced Focusing happens because seven blades give the aperture a rounded shape that produces an attractive smooth defocus effect for those out-of-focus areas. Mount it on any LUMIX G body and delight in high-speed Contrast Auto Focus.
Power O.I.S. Minimizes Blur and Enhances Images
By integrating POWER O.I.S. (Optical Image Stabilizer), movement, whether slow or fast, is accounted for making your job easier to shoot in those low-lit situations at night or even indoors at a get-together. By adopting an inner focus system, driven by a stepping-in-motion motor, the lens’ superior design provides smooth and near-silent focusing action that is ideal for both picture and video recording.
Constructed to be Light and Durable for your Photo Expeditions
This interchangeable lens boasts about how light and compact it really is. As you travel, this zoom lens results in extreme mobility for your busy, on-the-go tour days and travel expeditions. It also protects against nature’s elements, countering moisture and dust with its rubber ring around the lens mount. It is ideal for outdoor photography enthusiasts. And a highly reliable metal mount assures long periods of use. Have fun and travel light.
Nano Surface Coating Reduces Reflection
With Panasonic’s unique Nano Surface Coating technology, reflections in the entire visual range (380nm-780nm) are minimized giving you a dramatic reduction in glares, flares and ghosting. The result? Unbelievably clear, professional pictures whose superior clarity tells more than a thousand words.
