Panasonic 200mm f/2.8 overview

  • 1Description

A big lens for the Micro Four Thirds system, the Leica DG Elmarit 200mm f/2.8 POWER O.I.S. Lens from Panasonic is a 400mm-equivalent super telephoto prime, developed in partnership with Leica, that promises sharp imagery and excellent handling. With a fast f/2.8 maximum aperture users can work in low-light conditions and create images with a shallow depth of field. Ensuring optimal image quality, the design incorporates two Ultra Extra-Low Dispersion (UED) elements that combat aberrations while a Nano Surface Coating is applied to minimize flare.

Optimized for the capture of distant and fast-moving subject matter, this lens is equipped with a quiet triple linear motor autofocus system that has a 240 fps sensor drive for exceptionally fast performance in both stills and video. Also, a POWER Optical Image Stabilizer will compensate for camera shake and works with Panasonic's Dual I.S. and Dual I.S. 2.0 in-camera stabilization functions. Along with this, quick access lens controls, including a focus limiter, focus button, and focus memory switch, are available for tactile control over numerous settings.

Further benefitting the professional nature of this optic is a splash, dust, and freezeproof design for use in less-than-ideal weather conditions. It is compatible with teleconverters for added reach and the DMW-TC14 1.4x Teleconverter is included for creating a 560mm-equivalent lens at the cost of one stop of light.

With a 400mm equivalent focal length on Micro Four Thirds cameras, this telephoto prime is well suited to working with distant subject matter.
A fast f/2.8 maximum aperture excels when working in difficult lighting conditions and provides extensive control over depth of field.
Two ultra extra-low dispersion elements minimize various aberrations in order to produce a high degree of clarity, sharpness, and color accuracy.
Nano Surface Coating has been applied to individual elements to reduce flare and ghosting for improved contrast and color neutrality.
A triple linear motor autofocus system delivers smooth, near-silent performance that is especially beneficial to video applications when working in noise-sensitive areas. It is also able to drive the motor at up to 240 fps for high-speed applications and is silent for use in video.
POWER Optical Image Stabilizer minimizes the appearance of camera shake for sharper handheld shooting, and also supports the Dual I.S. and Dual I.S. 2.0 functions for increased stabilization performance.
Physical controls located on the lens barrel provide quick access to many commonly adjusted settings. This includes a focus control limiter for changing from full-range focusing or 9.8' to infinity for faster operation in some circumstances. Also, there is a focus button and a focus memory switch that can be set up to store focus position or to recall a specific camera function. In addition to these more unique controls, there is an AF/MF switch and a POWER O.I.S. on/off switch.
Splash, dust, and freezeproof design benefits working in inclement weather conditions down to -14°F.
A quick-shift, two-part rotating tripod collar permits quick switching between horizontal and vertical shooting orientations, and keeps the lens controls in the same place once rotated for more intuitive handling.
The lens comes supplied with a 1.4x teleconverter, providing users with a 560mm-equivalent focal length at a cost of 1 stop of light. For even more reach, an optional 2x teleconverter is available for an 800mm-equivalent focal length.

    Panasonic 200mm f/2.8 reviews

    Leica DG Elmarit 200mm f/2.8 POWER O.I.S. Lens is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 4.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful lens Pretty expensive lens, however the price drop to $2,500 is welcomed. Outstanding quality, build quality and photo quality are superb. This focal length works incredibly well at the zoo, alongside the included 1.4x teleconverter for the occasional times you need to reach just a bit further. I paired this lens with a GH5. Fast and accurate auto focus. Can't really think of anything bad to say about it, beautiful lens. Attached tiger photo was taken without the teleconverter at f/8.0. Cheetah is with 1.4 teleconverter at f/4.0.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from There's a reason why it's not cheap Yes this lens will take a chunk out of your retirement savings. And for good reasons. It focuses really fast and is razor sharp. I still don't like the hoods on pany telephotos (also have the 100-400) but they addressed the annoyance I had with the tripod collar not rotating 360*, because this one rotates all the way around. One minor gripe, which I won't mark it down for, is that the rattle (common with stabilized lenses when the camera power is off) is much louder than usual. Quite possibly because of the size of the elements. Unlike the full frame equivalent this fits into my domke with room to spare. It is so nice having a telephone lens that is compact but not a sacrifice in quality (thinking of the 100-300 lenses on full frames DSLRs). This is my most expensive lens and so far the best performing. The 100-400mm will always have a place with me, but the 200mm is my new wildlife lens of choice.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Top notch and so light! I am coming from 20years of Nikkor 300 f/2.8 up to their 800mm. No more... This 200mm f/2.8 paired with the G9 is a high performance tool, at a fraction of the cost and weight. Sharpness is stellar, as well as stabilisation, way better than the good old Nikon VR. No tripod with a 400mm equivalent field, that’s a reality. Thanks to Panasonic for re-inventing photography. I’m with you guys.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really nice lens This is a 200 mm lens f/2.8 that is very sharp and fast, even with the 1.4X teleconverter. This would be the equivalent of a 400 mm f/2.8 lens for a full frame camera (or equivalent to a 560 mm f/4 when the teleconverter is used) at a fraction of the cost of the equivalent full frame lens! There is also an optional 2X teleconverter available. Can lens be very easily hand held (providing a good technique) due to the internal stabilization system that can be paired to the Camera stabilization system. This represent a 6.5 stop of stabilization when used with the Lumix 9G body. Furthermore, there is a programmable button on the lens barrel that is very handy (I use it for auto-focus and remove the auto focus on the shutter button). There is also a programmable focal length memory selector button. On top of this, there is a f stop ring at the end of the barrel that I really like. This f stop ring can be use to any f stop, overriding the camera (manual) or could be set to "auto" for the camera to take over. With such a low f/stop, this is an excellent telephoto lens to use in low light condition. I would highly recommend this lens to any serious photographer, especially for birds and wildlife photography.
