Panasonic Lumix S PRO 70-200mm f/4 Overview

  • 1Description

Covering a versatile and popular range of focal lengths, the Lumix S PRO 70-200mm f/4 O.I.S. from Panasonic is an L-mount telephoto zoom featuring an f/4 constant maximum aperture. A sophisticated optical design is employed, which incorporates a series of aspherical, low dispersion, and high refractive index elements, to control a variety of aberrations, color fringing, and distortion for sharp, clear, well-corrected imagery throughout the zoom range. Complementing the optics is a unique double focus system, which utilizes both a linear motor and a stepping motor, to provide especially fast and precise focusing performance. Additionally, an Optical Image Stabilizer reduces the effects of camera shake for sharper handheld shooting and the lens sports a weather-sealed design for use in harsh conditions.

Telephoto zoom is designed for full-frame L-mount mirrorless cameras, however can also be used with APS-C models where it provides a 105-300mm equivalent focal length range.
Constant f/4 maximum aperture maintains consistent illumination throughout the zoom range.
One aspherical element and one ultra-high refractive index element help to minimize distortions and spherical aberrations throughout the zoom range in order to maintain edge-to-edge sharpness and illumination.
One ultra extra-low dispersion element and three extra-low dispersion elements greatly reduce chromatic aberrations and color fringing in order to produce a high degree of clarity and color accuracy.
A double focus system employs both a linear motor and a stepping motor to deliver impressively fast, precise, and quiet autofocus performance.
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.
Splash, dust, and freezeproof design benefits working in inclement weather conditions down to -14°F.
Rounded nine-blade diaphragm contributes to a pleasing bokeh quality.
Removable rotating tripod collar is included and benefits working with the lens atop a tripod or monopod.

    Panasonic Lumix S PRO 70-200mm f/4 Reviews

    Lumix S PRO 70-200mm f/4 O.I.S. Lens is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 1.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good fit with Leica CL; need better customer support The L mount allows for use of this lens as a 100-300 equivalent on the APS-C Leica CL. It is bulkier than the Leica 55-135 (90-200 equiv) that it replaced in my kit, but pairs well with the small CL body. I tried the gargantuan Leica SL 90-280 (135-400 equiv) on the CL. Images, OIS and focal length were great with that lens, but ergonomics and price were not in line with a camera like the CL that is made to be more affordable (sort of) and more portable than the Leica SL.  The OIS on this lens works well, making it much more useful to shoot wildlife than the Leica 55-135, which lacks the effective focal length and OIS of this lens. This lens does not extend when zoomed out; the manual focus works well; and having f4 throughout the zoom range is nice. AF is quick and smooth. IQ looks as good as the Leica vario that I am replacing with this lens. I think it is a good compromise on size and price if you want to do some outdoor photography with the Leica CL. It feels well made. Also, Panasonic offered a Leica-like 3 year warranty at the time that I made my purchase. I deducted one star because of the non-existent documentation of how to use this lens on the CL. I think I have figured out the OIS set up by trial and error, but there are no instructions included in the box, and neither Leica nor Panasonic customer service seemed to know for sure. Leica US tried to be helpful, but had to send my question about the OIS switch to Germany, because no information had been provided to them. The Panasonic rep, contacted by B&H, said to turn off the OIS on the lens. My tests indicate that the lens switch should be on for optimal OIS. The L mount alliance is a great idea, but using equipment across multiple platforms means that there needs to be a central repository for complete and accurate customer support.

    Does this lens change length when zooming ?
    Asked by: Harry
    No, it does not. The Panasonic Lumix S Pro 70-200mm F4 OIS lens has rotary internal zooming; the lens does not physically extended when zooming the lens from 70mm to 200mm. The lens is weather-sealed.

    Will the OIS work on the Leica CL?

    Will the OIS work on the Leica CL?
    Asked by: Wayne
    I will answer my own question. Yes, it will work as long as the firmware is up-to-date and the OIS switch on the lens is on (although I have a query into Leica about the proper lens switch position; it is not covered in the instructions that come with the lens).
