Product description
Announced Aug 26, 2011

The Panasonic LUMIX G X VARIO PZ 14-42mm/F3.5-5.6 ASPH./ POWER O.I.S represents a series of firsts for Panasonic and the Micro Four Thirds system - it incorporates a lever-operated powered zoom and similarly controlled manual focus system. It was also the first lens to gain the company's 'Lumix X' branding that the company uses to denote high-end performance. The power zoom design with quiet focus and zoom motors complements the stepless aperture, both of which make the lens attractive for HD video shooting, as well as still images.
