Sleek and nimble, the Panasonic Lumix S 85mm f/1.8 is a compact short-telephoto prime designed for full-frame L-mount mirrorless cameras. The 85mm focal length is ideally suited for portraiture and more selective shooting and pairs with a modestly bright f/1.8 maximum aperture that offers depth of field control while also promoting a sleek form factor. The optical design incorporates a pair of extra-low dispersion elements, which help to reduce color fringing and chromatic aberrations in order to achieve high clarity and accurate color rendering. This lens is also characterized by its linear AF motor, for fast focusing performance, and its dust-, moisture-, and freeze-resistant design to enable working in tough environmental conditions.
- L-Mount Lens/Full-Frame Format

Panasonic Lumix S 85mm f/1.8 Reviews
Yes PanasonicLUMIX S 85mmf/1.8
I purchased this as a gift for my son and he absolutely loves this lens. He said the quality of the photos exceeded his expectations. This is great to add to his lens collection for portraits and low light situations.
Grt Sharp portrait out of this lens
Great lens with great results
I really enjoyed shooting video with this lens. Great perspectives for broll. Still waiting on the 50mm f1.8 - back ordered.
An amazing lens for video work.
I've shot Cooke glass on Red camera systems over the course of my career, and I can honestly say that this 85mm on our S1h yields comparable results. We have two of these lenses that we use almost exclusively for interviews. We consistently get tack sharp focus wide open, with excellent subject separation, color rendering, minimal distortion, and smooth bokeh. Perhaps it's more the Lumix S cameras systems, but like the 20-60mm and, to a slightly lesser degree, the 50mm 1.8, these lenses seem custom-built for video. They deliver astonishing results when used for that purpose. They don't perform quite as well for stills work as the autofocus is still subpar compared to other manufactures. (I will say it is getting markedly better with each camera update.) I've experienced some frustration attempting to get the camera and lens to focus on where I would like in the frame.
it's amazing on my S5
Sharp, lightweight and compact size, with great autofocus on the Lumix S5 it's my favorite lens for portrait shots
Great image quality.
This lens is just great, with it's reach you can shoot portrait from a distance for example in weddings without people seeing you and you just get the spontaneous shots that you're looking for, same thing for videography as well. Very Sharp and fast lens, highly recommended
Its Cinematic and great to use with anamorphic adapters
