*35mm camera equivalent. At focal length 17mm. **At focal length 12-17mm.
Special technology for crystal-clear images
Panasonic’s Nano Surface Coating minimizes unwanted ghosting and flaring, reducing the reflection of light rays across the entire light spectrum for crystal-clear images. And special glass eliminates unwanted light to minimize ghosting and flare even more powerfully.
O.I.S. for ultra-sharp photos
Capture what you see on the spur of the moment. Optical image stabilization (O.I.S.) technology built directly into the lens ensures your photos will look great, with sharp, blur-free contours across the entire image.
