Providing a 70-200mm equivalent focal-length range in a compact, 2-inch-long form factor, this telephoto zoom offers versatility and extended reach while still maintaining the svelte appeal of the Micro Four Thirds system. Complementing the physical attributes is an equally refined optical design, which includes one aspherical element and two extra-low dispersion elements to minimize aberrations and distortions throughout the zoom range, for greater clarity and color accuracy.
Further lending itself to handheld shooting applications, this lens also features a MEGA O.I.S. image stabilization system that helps to minimize the appearance of camera shake for sharper imagery at slower shutter speeds. A minimum focusing distance of just 3 feet benefits working with close-up subject matter; a stepping motor works in perfect tandem with Panasonic's high-speed contrast-detection focusing technology to enable quick, accurate, and smooth focusing performance.
