Product description
Announced Mar 7, 2010

The Panasonic Lumix G Vario 14-42mm F3.5-5.6 ASPH Mega O.I.S. is an image-stabilized standard zoom lens covering an effective focal length range of 28-84mm on Micro Four Thirds cameras.This lens is a new optical design but offers a similar specification to the original 14-45mm G System zoom. The new lens, known as the H-FS014042, loses the image stabilization on/off switch and metal mount of its predecessor and comes in a slightly larger body. This lens features a minimum focus distance of 30cm over the entire zoom range, a circular aperture diaphragm and multi-coated lens elements to minimize ghosting and flare.
