Panasonic LUMIX S 100mm f/2.8 Macro Overview

By B&H Photo's
Exceptionally Lightweight
An ultra-compact medium-telephoto lens designed for full-frame L-mount mirrorless cameras, the Lumix S 100mm f/2.8 Macro Lens from Panasonic offers a unique perspective for capturing portraits and detailed close-ups. Panasonic's incorporation of their dual phase linear motor system ensures high-speed autofocusing performance. Sporting a highly lightweight design, this lens weighs just 10.5 oz, making it ideal for traveling with. Chromatic and spherical aberrations are greatly reduced by the lens's construction, which includes three aspherical elements.
Dual Phase Linear Motor
A newly developed dual phase linear motor suppresses focus breathing and allows near-silent lens operation. Not only is this motor a benefit for still photography, it is also a great asset for capturing high-quality video.

Aside from providing high lens performance, this compact motor design reduces the overall size and allows for class-leading mobility.

Macro Design
A 1:1 magnification ratio and a minimum focusing distance of 8" is available for working with close-up subjects. The featured 9-bladed circular diaphragm creates flattering, round bokeh.

Focus bracketing with this lens allows you to capture images at multiple focal points and avoid an excessively shallow depth of field in your images.

Optical Design and Lens Construction
The Lumix S 100mm f/2.8 delivers crisp image sharpness while maintaining its compactness by incorporating three aspherical elements, two ultra extra-low dispersion elements, and one extra-low dispersion element. Additionally, this design greatly contributes to reducing chromatic and spherical aberrations.

Featured on the exterior of the lens is a focus mode switch for quickly alternating between auto and manual focus. Directly next to it is a focus range selector switch that allows you to choose between 0.204-0.5m, 0.5m-∞, and FULL.

Weather-Resistant
Both dust- and splash-resistant, the Lumix S 100mm f/2.8 can operate at temperatures as low as 14°F.

Asked by: Egamrit
No, the Panasonic Lumix S 100mm f/2.8 Macro Lens (Leica L) is not designed to connect with teleconverters. The rear of the lens is sealed and will not allow physical connections with the Panasonic DMW-STC20 Lumix S 2x Teleconverter or the Panasonic DMW-STC14 Lumix S 1.4x Teleconverter.
