Panasonic 50-200mm f/2.8-4.0 overview

  • 1Description

A flexible optic ideal for wildlife, outdoor, and nature photography, the Leica DG Vario-Elmarit 50-200mm f/2.8-4 ASPH. POWER O.I.S. Lens from Panasonic is a 100-400mm equivalent zoom designed in collaboration with Leica for Micro Four Thirds cameras. The long reach is complemented by a bright f/2.8-4 maximum aperture range, which benefits working in low-light conditions and also affords control over depth of field for isolating subjects. The optical design incorporates several low dispersion elements, two aspherical elements, and an ultra-high refractive index element to control both chromatic and spherical aberrations for improved clarity and sharpness. A Nano Surface Coating has also been applied to limit flare and ghosting for increased contrast and color fidelity when working in strong lighting conditions.

Benefitting both stills shooting and video recording, a 240 fps high-speed AF motor offers quick, quiet, and precise autofocus performance. 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 to minimize the appearance of camera shake. Additionally, the physical design of the lens is dust- and moisture-resistant, as well as freeze-proof, for use in inclement shooting conditions.

With a 100-400mm equivalent focal length range on Micro Four Thirds cameras, this telephoto prime is well suited to working with distant subject matter.
Bright f/2.8-4 maximum aperture range excels when working in difficult lighting conditions and provides increased control over depth of field.
Two ultra extra-low dispersion elements and two extra-low dispersion elements minimize various aberrations in order to produce a high degree of clarity, sharpness, and color accuracy.
Two aspherical elements and one ultra high refractive index element help to reduce distortion and spherical aberrations for improved sharpness and accurate rendering throughout the zoom range.
Nano Surface Coating has been applied to individual elements to reduce flare and ghosting for improved contrast and color neutrality.
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.
A 240 fps AF motor offers fast, precise, and near-silent focusing performance to benefit both stills shooting and video recording applications.
Splash, dust, and freezeproof design benefits working in inclement weather conditions down to -14°F.
Compatible with optional 1.4x and 2x teleconverters to further extend the effective reach.

    Panasonic 50-200mm f/2.8-4.0 reviews

    Leica DG Vario-Elmarit 50-200mm f/2.8-4 ASPH. POWER O.I.S. Lens is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 5.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sharp, nice color rendition This is a very nice lens as it should be considering the price. The range makes it very useful. It is really sharp (Leica lens design after all) and the color rendition is very nice and pleasing. With the Dual IS (I have a GX8), the stabilization is truly amazing. I came to Panasonic from Canon so comparing this lens to the 100-400L lens, this lens is a bit less expensive, less the half the weight, and faster to boot. The Leica lens series (8-18, 12-60, and this 50-200) were the reason I was able to switch with reasonable confidence. Don't get me wrong the Canon system is really good but it is also really heavy and to cover the range I have now, really expensive.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Completes the trilogy High quality, great performance throughout its zoom range, and you get all you pay for. Read other on-line reviews for technical quality, which is superb and beyond my ability to test. As a user, it fills a vital range. Stabilization is superb, it has a solid, well-balanced feel, and if you are not getting great shots, it is your fault. I use it on a GX8 and couldn't be happier. Sample shot is f2.8, 1/1000, 50mm, ISO400

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Great Lens I have had the new 50-200 a couple of weeks, and I know it will be used frequently. With it and the 12-60, I have 90% of my shooting covered. The build is nothing short of excellent. The glass is fast, sharp and clear. This is what I expect and get from the Leica lenses. Thanks Panasonic adding this zoom range.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Something Special In my 70 years, I have had both Nikon and Canon top or second to the top of line cameras and top of the line lenses which were all excellent. I had been using M4/3 cameras for six years. I recently bought this lens and a G9. It would be hard to overstate the quality and relative value of this lens and of that camera. The clarity of the lens is better than the other Panasonic lenses I have had. Its weight is manageable and the lens hood is easy to get on and off. It focuses quickly and doesnt search as much as some other Panasonic lenses. I have used it with both a GX85 and the G9. This is not a walk around lens as is my favorite 14-140 for that purpose but the PL50-200 is a superior lens in every regard except in the zoom range over the 14-140. I believe optically, the top of the line lenses of both Nikon and Canon are better but for the price & for ease of use, I would take the PL50-200 in a heartbeat. One could buy every Panasonic Leica lens for what a couple of the most expensive lenses from either company, Nikon or Canon, would cost. Just saying....

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Panasonic Leica DG Vario-Elmarit 50-200mm I really like the range on this lens and with the teleconverter added to it makes it even better.
