Panasonic Lumix G 42.5mm f/1.7 ASPH. POWER O.I.S. Lens
Key Features
  • Micro Four Thirds System
  • 85mm (35mm Equivalent)
  • Aperture Range: f/1.7 to f/22
  • One Aspherical Element
A standard portrait-length prime, the Lumix G 42.5mm f/1.7 ASPH. POWER O.I.S. from Panasonic is an 85mm-equivalent lens designed for the Micro Four Thirds system of mirrorless cameras. One aspherical element is incorporated within the optical design, which helps to control spherical aberrations and distortions for enhanced sharpness and accurate rendering. The f/1.7 maximum aperture is particularly beneficial for selective focus imagery, and also aids shooting in low-light conditions. Further cementing its place as a versatile tool for portraiture, the rounded seven-blade diaphragm produces a smooth out-of-focus quality when making shallow depth of field photos and movies.

question

If I buy a step up ring for this lens (37mm to 46mm), will I still be able to use the lens hood? Or would a step up ring block the thread from being able to mount on the hood?

I’ve heard this lens had stabilization issues ...

I’ve heard this lens had stabilization issues when mounted to the original BMPCC (micro jitters, IS turning off & on, etc). Is this the same case with the BMPCC4K?
