Panasonic 45-200mm f/4-5.6 G Vario MEGA O.I.S. Lens for Micro Four Thirds Mount
Key Features
  • Standard to Telephoto Zoom Lens
  • Aperture Range: f/4-22
  • Designed for Lumix G-Series
  • Fits Micro Four Thirds Format
The Panasonic 45-200mm f/4-5.6 G Vario MEGA O.I.S. Lens is an interchangeable long telephoto zoom lens, developed by Leica exclusively for Panasonic Lumix digital micro four-thirds cameras. It follows the ultra-compact Micro Four Thirds Standard, which also makes it compatible with other brands that use this same format. The focal length of this lens is equivalent to approximately 90-400mm in 35mm format terms.

By incorporating the MEGA O.I.S. (Optical Image Stabilizer) feature and 3 ED elements, this lens makes it possible to capture clear, sharp images, edge to edge, even in macro shooting or low-lit situations. This provides users with a wide range of shooting flexibility.


Note: Since the Four Thirds camera body has a longer flange back length than the Micro Four Thirds camera body, Micro Four Thirds lenses cannot be mounted on Four Thirds camera bodies.

ED Glass
Three ED (extra-low dispersion) elements help the lens meet Leica's extremely high optical performance standards. They help capture images that are clear from corner to corner across the entire zoom range, with minimal distortion.
Multi-Coated
Multi-coated lens elements reduce ghosting and flare to an absolute minimum, enabling the lens to deliver an optical performance that meets Leica's lofty standards.
Circular Aperture
7-blade circular aperture diaphragm produces pleasant out-of-focus characteristics
Micro Four Thirds Lens Mount
Use of the Micro Four Thirds Standard means that this lens can also be used with other manufacturers that have adopted this digital camera standard
