An ideal starter set, the Panasonic Lumix S 85mm f/1.8 Lens with UV Filter Kit from B&H bundles the short-telephoto prime lens with a 67mm UV filter.

Panasonic Lumix S 85mm f/1.8 Lens

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.

Prime portrait-length lens is designed for full-frame L-mount mirrorless cameras, however can also be used on APS-C models where it will provide a 127.5mm equivalent focal length.
Bright f/1.8 maximum aperture offers control over depth of field and suits working in available lighting conditions as well as promotes a compact form factor.
Two extra-low dispersion elements reduce chromatic aberrations and limit color fringing for improved clarity and color accuracy.
Linear autofocus motor delivers smooth, precise, and near silent focusing performance to benefit both stills and video applications.
Rounded nine-blade diaphragm contributes to a pleasing bokeh quality when employing selective focus techniques.
Dust-, moisture-, and freeze-resistant design for increased protection to the elements.

Chiaro Pro 67mm 98-UVATS UV Filter

The Pro 67mm 98-UVATS UV Filter is one of Chiaro’s highest-rated protective UV filters with 98% light transmission. It’s ideal for photographers of all levels who demand high-quality glass and other essential features for excellent image fidelity and construction.

To achieve 98% light transmission, Chiaro uses highly-polished optical 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. Its hard-anodized aluminum filter ring is designed to screw on and off effortlessly, and it is thin to prevent vignetting when used with wide-angle lenses. Side knurling helps assure 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.

98% Light Transmission
Protecting your lens doesn't mean you have to lose optical quality. By using highly-polished optical glass and advanced coatings, Chiaro offers a 98% transmission rate, which is an excellent 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 allow 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 Optical Glass
Glass that's polished to perfection is essential to achieve a high level of light transmission. The optical glass in this Chiaro filter is highly-polished for flatness that ensures excellent optical clarity.
Multi-Coating
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.
Hard Anodized Aluminum Construction
The process of hard anodizing toughens and strengthens the aluminum for a lightweight yet durable filter ring.
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 to better 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.

Hi! This will not work with the G9, as the lens has an L-mount but the G9 has a Micro Four Thirds system mount. If you want to see the compatibilities of the G9 with lenses and other products, please check this website: https://av.jpn.support.panasonic.com/support/global/cs/dsc/connect/g9.html -A

How does this lens do with chromatic aberration? I'm familiar with the popular Canon 85mm 1.8, so perhaps a comparison to that would be appreciated. Thanks.
Asked by: Nate
This lens is good but not the best in terms of Chromatic Aberrations. This is a very sharp lens across the frame. And while It may suffer comparatively from Chromatic Aberrations, this is very easily fixed in software.

The Limited 1-Year Warranty from Panasonic included with the purchase of the Panasonic Lumix S 85mm f/1.8 Lens is only valid for use within North America (the United States of America and Canada). It would not be valid for use in India. If you require international warranty coverage, you would have to purchase one of the SquareTrade Pro Plans that appear on the following pop-up page after you click the blue "Preorder" or "Add To Cart" button on the lens' webpage.

I'm torn between this lens and the 50mm f1.8. Which one is more versatile in terms of portraits and product photography?
Asked by: Hassan
Both lenses excel in portraits and product photography, with the choice largely dependent on your desired focal range. Notably, the 50mm lens boasts a maximum magnification of 0.14x, surpassing the 0.13x of the 85mm lens. Opting for higher magnification is advantageous, particularly if you seek better performance in close-up shots. -M

Is the manual focus on this lens focus by wire or mechanical focus?
Asked by: William
Focus by wire, but the S series of LUMIX cameras have a setting where you can change the focus mode to linear as well as changing the focus throw, thereby making it behave as a mechanical focus. Better, even.
