Spanning a versatile telephoto range, the Lumix G X Vario PZ 45-175mm f/4-5.6 ASPH. POWER O.I.S. from Panasonic is a 90-350mm equivalent lens designed for Micro Four Thirds mirrorless cameras. The lens's optical design includes a pair of aspherical elements and a pair of extra-low dispersion elements, which help to control aberrations, distortion, and color fringing in order to realize a sharp, color-accurate image quality, and a floating elements system is also used to maintain clarity throughout the zoom and focus ranges. A Nano Surface Coating has also been applied to suppress lens flare and ghosting for greater contrast when working in harsh lighting conditions.
Complementing the imaging capabilities, this lens is also characterized by its power zoom design that affords smooth, controllable zoom adjustment via a built-in switch. POWER O.I.S. also helps to minimize the appearance of camera shake for sharper handheld shooting and a stepping AF motor, along with internal focusing design, contributes to quick, quiet focus performance to suit both photo and video applications.

Hoya 46mm UV Haze NXT HMC Filter
The Hoya 46mm UV Haze NXT HMC Filter is a general use, clear filter that helps to absorb ultraviolet light and protect the front of your lens. Its clear design allows you to pair this filter with others or leave on lenses at all times as a general protective filter. It can also help to reduce dust and moisture and keep them from reaching your lens element while providing additional protection in case of drops or situations where scratching could occur.
Hoya HMC filters are multi-coated for reducing flare, ghosting, and reflections on the filter surface. As a result, over 97% light transmission is possible in order to maintain contrast and color fidelity. The UV NXT filters are constructed from high quality, heat-resistant, high-transparency optical glass and a precision milled low-profile aluminum frame.
Absorbs UV light, which can cause outdoor photos to appear hazy and indistinct.
Works as general protection filter to reduce dust, moisture, and scratches from reaching lens elements.
HMC multi-coating affords greater than 97% light transmission and helps to reduce flare, ghosting, and reflections on the filter surface for greater contrast and color fidelity.
Crafted from high quality, heat-resistant, high-transparency optical glass and a precision milled low-profile aluminum frame.
