The LUMIX G VARIO 45-150mm: Panasonic’s new compact, lightweight telephoto zoom lens is unveiled

We are very pleased to announce the launch of the LUMIX G VARIO 45-150mm (35mm equivalent focal length: 90-300mm), the latest telephoto zoom interchangeable lens for Digital Single Lens Mirrorless LUMIX G cameras. This compact, lightweight lens with a metal body, optimized for HD video recording is perfect for capturing crisp, blur-free images when shooting sporting events and other distant subjects.

The lens incorporates Panasonic’s MEGA O.I.S. optical image stabiliser, which makes it easy to shoot extremely clear photos even in low-lit situations by suppressing the blur caused by handshake.

Panasonic’s Nano Surface Coating technology has also been adopted in the lens, minimising reflection across the entire visual light range. This enables the lens to achieve clear pictures and a dramatic reduction in ghosting and lens flare.

The LUMIX G VARIO 45-150mm is the latest addition to Panasonic’s LUMIX G microsystem, which includes the world’s largest range of Micro Four Thirds lenses and accessories.
