BH #PA5018S • MFR #S-S50
Panasonic Lumix S 50mm f/1.8 Lens
Key Features
  • L-Mount Lens/Full-Frame Format
  • Aperture Range: f/1.8 to f/22
  • Three Aspherical Elements
  • Linear AF Motor
Designed for full-frame L-mount mirrorless cameras, the Panasonic Lumix S 50mm f/1.8 is a sleek and compact standard-length prime. Its 50mm focal length is ideally suited for portraiture, landscapes, and all-purpose shooting and provides a modestly bright f/1.8 maximum aperture for shallow depth of field control. An extra-low dispersion element and an ultra-high refractive index element reduce chromatic aberration and color fringing for improved clarity and color accuracy, and the lens provides excellent sharpness as well. A linear autofocus motor suppresses focus breathing and delivers smooth, precise, and near silent focusing performance. Made for tough environmental conditions, the lens also features a dust-, moisture-, and freeze-resistant design.

Does this lens feature linear focus or focus by wire?
Asked by: Jyothi
The Lumix S 50mm f/1.8 uses a focus-by-wire linear focus motor in AF. In MF, while still focus-by-wire, the linear focus ring control for mechanical-based follow focus systems moves the focus at a constant speed in accordance with the rotating angle of the focus ring, allowing more precise MF control.
