Additionally, suiting both photo and video applications, a stepping motor is featured, which affords fast, precise, and near-silent autofocus performance.

Wide-to-short telephoto zoom is designed for full-frame L-mount mirrorless cameras, however can also be used with APS-C models where it provides a 30-90mm equivalent focal length range.
Two aspherical elements and one ultra high refractive index (UHR) element, help to minimize distortions and spherical aberrations throughout the zoom range in order to maintain edge-to-edge sharpness and illumination.
Three extra-low dispersion elements greatly reduce chromatic aberrations and color fringing in order to produce a high degree of clarity and color accuracy.
Stepping AF motor delivers quick and quiet focusing performance that benefits both photo and video applications.
Maximum magnification of 0.43x and a minimum focusing distance of 5.9" benefits working with close-up subjects.
AF/MF switch permits quick changing between focusing modes.
Splash, dust, and freezeproof design benefits working in inclement weather conditions down to 14°F.
Fluorine coating has been applied to the front element to prevent dirt and oils from sticking to lens.
Rounded nine-blade diaphragm contributes to a pleasing bokeh quality.

Panasonic Lumix S 20-60mm f/3.5-5.6 Reviews

Great lens for the Sigma fp

By Eric
Rated 5 out of 5
Date: 2021-11-23

Not quite the quality feel and look of a Sigma L mount lens, but the usefulness of 20-60mm and compact size and light weight is just a great all round lens for the fp.

Will do for now.

It seems to be working fine on a day-to-daylight basis. I'd love to try the 24-70mm but that's costly. While I'm learning the S5 it'll do; results from shooting in V-LOG have been good. I've just ordered a 35mm prime for low light filming.

Beautiful Images, budget-friendly

This lens works great on my Lumix S5. I was hesitant at first because it's a kit lens but was pleasantly surprised at the quality of images it produces. For the price, it's worth every penny. Even though it has a variable f-stop of 3.5-5.6, don't be scared off considering it works flawlessly in conjunction with the overall Panasonic system. You won't be disappointed with this go-to workhorse lens.

A very good, unique and versatile lens

I use it for landscapes, general photography and the occasional close-up. It is sharp at all focal lengths and most apertures. It's also lightweight and fits on my S5 like a glove. I couldn't be happier with my purchase.

Good but noisy

This is a great lens if used for outdoor wide angle shots. But indoor, its complete waste. Extremely noisy and slow in terms of autofocus.

VERY good lens on the Leica SL2!

This little lens is wonderful on the Leica SL2! Great travel lens for city touring which is what I bought it for. Also very good near-macro for flowers and insects!

Better than a 'kit' lens

By Dennis

While the specs may seem like a slow aperture kit lens, it is enjoyable to use. I like the form factor - compact and lightweight. The build quality is excellent, and you get much wider at 20mm, than a typical standard range zoom lens. The lens is sharp and I haven't found much distortion to talk about. I took off one star as the aperture does push me into higher ISOs. I typically prefer fast primes.

Nice value and quality
