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

By B&H Photo's

Complementing the lens itself, the Panasonic Lumix S PRO 70-200mm f/4 O.I.S. Lens with UV Filter Kit from B&H bundles the telephoto zoom with a 77mm UV filter.

Panasonic Lumix S PRO 70-200mm f/4 O.I.S. Lens

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.

Chiaro Pro 77mm 99-UVBTS Brass UV Filter

The Pro 77mm 99-UVBTS Brass UV Filter is Chiaro’s top-performing protective UV filter offering 99% light transmission. It’s ideal for photographers who demand the highest-quality glass and other essential features for uncompromised image fidelity and premium construction.

To achieve superior 99% light transmission, Chiaro uses highly-polished Schott glass, multi-coating, and additional advanced elements that improve the filter’s light transmission. A scratch-resistant coating minimizes scratching of the glass and helps assure that water, oil, dust, and fingerprints are removed with a gentle wipe. The durable brass filter ring is designed to screw on and off effortlessly, and it’s thin to prevent vignetting when used with wide-angle lenses. Side knurling is crafted to help ensure that you’ll have a firm grip when attaching or removing your filter.

Image quality is what matters most at Chiaro. The company has tested and combined many features and essentials to achieve superior image quality and the highest light transmission. To help take the confusion out of selecting a filter, Chiaro prominently displays the light transmission levels so that you can choose the perfect filter for your lens and photo session.

99% Light Transmission

Protecting your lens doesn't mean you have to lose optical quality. By using highly-polished Schott glass and advanced coatings, Chiaro can offer a 99% transmission rate, which is the highest possible transmission rate for glass. And the company verifies the ratings with ISO certified lab testing.

Resistance Coating

The layers of advanced resistance coating on the filter are designed to resist moderate scratches, and allows you to easily clean your filter. Water beads up and rolls off your filter, and oil and fingerprints can come off with a gentle wipe. Dust and debris won't adhere to the filter and can be removed with a puff of air.

Polished Schott Glass

Glass that's polished to perfection is essential to achieve a high level of light transmission. The Schott glass in this Chiaro filter is highly-polished for flatness that ensures superior optical clarity.


Multi-coating enhances light transmission to the demanding level set for all Chiaro filters. It reduces unwanted internal reflections and ghosting that can compromise your images.

UV Protection

The filter blocks UV light and reduces the bluish cast of daylight that can affect color accuracy, especially at higher altitudes.

Brass Construction

The durable brass filter ring offers a substantial, premium feel. The unique properties of brass minimize the chance of jamming or binding when you're screwing the filter onto your lens or stacking filters.

Slim Design

Measuring only 3.2mm, this filter is slim enough to use on wide-angle lenses without experiencing vignetting.

Top and Side Knurling

In addition to top knurling, Chiaro added side knurling that helps offer better options to grip the filter when you're attaching and removing it, or when you're stacking filters.

Secure Attachment

It takes two full turns to mount the filter on your lens. This feature will securely hold your Chiaro filter through the most demanding photo shoots.

Front Threads

The front threads on the filter allow you to stack filters by screwing them onto your Chiaro filter.

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

Good Image but missing extras

By Scot
Rated 4 out of 5
Date: 2021-06-18

I like the lens, focus is quick and accurate. With that being said this lens does not have a focus limit switch like it's big brother. That is a problem when it hunts. As much as I like the focus clutch I'd rather they had put in the limit switch. That is the only reason I didn't give it 5 stars.

Good fit with Leica CL; need better customer support

By Wayne

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.

Love this lens.

The focus ring could be a little nicer, but the image quality is great! f4 is plenty.

Very sharp and great autofocus

By Dylan
Rated 5 out of 5

I was going to go for the f2.8 version but I couldn’t justify the price of that lens at the moment so I ended up going for the f/4 instead. It’s lighter and basically $1,000 dollars cheaper. It’s very sharp at f/4 and the autofocus is very accurate and fast. If you need a longer focal length for the L-Mount system (I’m using the S1) I would highly recommend this lens. The build quality is excellent and I’m very happy I made this purchase.
