Panasonic introduces a new 200mm f/2.8 super-telephoto lens, the LEICA DG ELMARIT 200mm / F2.8 / POWER O.I.S. (35 mm camera equivalent: 400 mm). It boasts the sharpest-ever corner to corner image quality in LUMIX G CSC (Compact System) camera history. Featuring a fast constant aperture lens in a compact, lightweight design, and thanks to the O.I.S (Optical Image Stabilizer) enables handheld super-telephoto shooting.
With its 400mm super-telephoto focal length equivalent and stunning performance, the LEICA DG ELMARIT 200mm / F2.8 / POWER O.I.S. is suitable for wildlife and sports photographers. The 1.4x Teleconverter (DMW-TC14) increases the focal length to 560mm (35mm camera equivalent) for getting closer to the action.
The fast F2.8 aperture lets you capture fast-moving subjects while the POWER O.I.S. effectively compensates for the hand-shake movement, making it easier to shoot even without a tripod or in low-light situations. The lens is compatible with Dual I.S. (Image Stabilizer) and Dual I.S. 2 systems when mounted on the Panasonic LUMIX G CSC cameras for the most effective image stabilisation.
Complying to LEICA’s stringent quality standard, the lens is comprised of 15 elements in 13 groups, featuring two UED (Ultra Extra-low Dispersion) lenses. The use of UED lenses and the crystallization of Panasonic cutting-edge optical technology helps achieve high resolution, high contrast corner to corner images while suppressing distortion and chromatic aberration.
Incorporating a triple linear motor system and max.240 fps sensor drive, the new LEICA DG ELMARIT 200mm / F2.8 / POWER O.I.S. achieves high-speed, high-precision AF system in both photo and video recording. This stunning AF performance is excellent for recording 4K video, where precise focusing is especially required. In addition, the micro-step drive system as part of the aperture control helps the camera to smoothly manages brightness changes while panning.
It boasts a rugged, dust/splash-proof design and are even freeze-proof up to -10℃ to withstand professional use under harsh conditions.
The LEICA DG ELMARIT 200mm / F2.8 / POWER O.I.S. can also be used with the 2.0x Teleconverter DMW-TC20 (see accessories), which extends the focal length to 800mm (35mm camera equivalent) for capturing distant objects.
