Panasonic Lumix S 24-105mm f/4 Macro O.I.S. Lens
The Panasonic Lumix S 24-105mm f/4 Macro O.I.S. Lens is part of Panasonic's new full frame mirrorless system. As part of the L Mount Alliance, along with Sigma and Leica, Panasonic is offering a new line of high-end L mount lenses to pair with the Panasonic Lumix S1 and S1R. Here are some of the features of this professional mid-range zoom:
Lens and Sensor Distance
At the heart of this new system is a large diameter mount that allows for new L mount lenses to be equipped with large, light-gathering rear elements and ultra-fast apertures. This is coupled with the S1 system's short, 20mm flange distance (the distance between a lens' mount and the surface of the sensor). Having larger optical elements very close to the sensor means fewer aberrations, greater brightness, and better image performance overall. Speed and volume of communication between the lens and camera is also increased.
Practical Zoom Range with Added Features
This lens not only covers an extremely versatile focal range but it also provides a half-life-size (1:2) magnification ratio and a minimum focusing distance of 11.8" for close-up subjects. The Optical Image Stabilizer supports the S1 system's built-in IS for 5-Axis Dual IS, making it possible to use much slower shutter speeds in low light.
Focus Fit for Filmmaking, Elevated Design for Everything
Equipped with a special mechanism that suppresses focus breathing, the Lumix S 24-105mm is designed with video in mind. A linear motor achieves ultra fast and silent auto focusing. The weather resistant build allows it to be used out in the field for documentaries and more. Ergonomics is considered at all angles, including a notch in the lens ring where you naturally place your hand. Panasonic experimented with differently-textured rings to create a lens with the perfect fingertip traction. This benefits photographers as well, especially while wielding the larger form factor of the S1/S1R during lifestyle and event shooting.
The Lumix S line marks a new chapter for Panasonic. The 24-105mm f/4 Macro O.I.S. lens in particular is extremely versatile and a great choice for all subject matters. The image stabilization, half-life-size macro abilities, useful range, and thoughtful design pair beautifully with professional features of the Panasonic Lumix S1 and S1R.
