TELEPHOTO 100-300mm / F4.0-5.6
Drawing subjects in from a distance, this 300mm (35mm camera equivalent: 600mm) ultra-telephoto zoom lens is ideal for capturing intense action sports, or even animals you couldn’t normally get close to. Unlike conventional lenses, LUMIX G lenses like this one are small, lightweight and fit perfectly in the palm of your hand. Now you can take professional-looking shots of an athlete – and even capture individual drops of water falling through the air.
SPLASH AND DUSTPROOF
Brave the elements in nearly any kind of weather or shooting location. This lens features a splash/dustproof construction* that is tough enough to withstand even heavy field use. It protects the lens system inside from sand, rain and more, making it perfect for shooting under harsh conditions. Now there is nothing holding you back from capturing the creative nature or landscape shots you want.
*The lens supports this feature in conjunction with splash/dustproof LUMIX cameras.
Capture scenes carefree or at the spur of the moment. The 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 picture.
Taking highly popular MEGA O.I.S. further, this advanced technology immediately compensates even large camera shake and vibrations that may occur in photography. So you can capture true-to-life scenes without the need for a tripod. In the end, you’ll enjoy wonderfully crisp images.
With video support any user has everything they need for recording with their LUMIX camera. Not only does it perform smooth aperture changes, so there are no sudden jumps in exposure, it also boasts a silent design for enhanced capture of the scene’s audio. What’s more, the stunning AF performance of this lens records excellent 4K video, where precise focusing is essential.
Extra-Low Dispersion (ED) lenses correct chromatic aberration rendering sharp, high-contrast images with clear colors from corner to corner.
For lenses that are capable of compensating distortion, the horizontal axis of the MTF shows the distance from the center of the corrected image.
Panasonic LUMIX Mirror less Micro Four Thirds lenses deliver a no-compromise approach to optical performance for modern interchangeable camera enthusiasts. This *100-300mm F4.0-5.6 classic enhanced lens has been updated for the outdoors with a splash proof and dustproof design (when mounted on a compatible LUMIX G Mirror less camera). Now featuring Power O.I.S. optical image stabilization compatibility with 5-Axis Dual I.S. 2.0 (Image Stabilization) you'll shoot with unprecedented hand-held stability. Make the switch from bulky DSLRs to the smaller, lighter, more compact Mirror less Micro Four Thirds system cameras and lenses from Panasonic LUMIX. (200-600mm 35mm Camera Lens Equivalent).

Update jan 2018....This lens has produced some of the best long range animal footage I could have hoped for in such a small and light format. The video is crisp, clean and clear and auto focus works really fast. It produces great bokeh and the stabilization is on par or better than my big canon lenses. Totally impressed.
For video footage of this lens on a G85, check out "DDW Reviews" on Youtube and look for his "G85 at the Zoo" vid
- Color/Contrast is great
- Synergy with Dual IS is game-changing
- Autofocus and manual focus-by-wire work quite well. AF surprisingly fast and accurate
- Pro level bokeh when the aperture is wide open, with plenty room to spare for wider or closed down shots
- Lightweight, easy to use and carry around, durable
- Chromatic Aberration is non-existent
- Makes for very good video work
The crop factor limitations of Micro Four Thirds systems as compared to "full frame" or 35mm standards is actually an advantage in this case of very long lenses. This lens is going to give you 600mm equivalent focal length at about 1/3 the physical size and weight of a similar full frame setup. The trade-off is less light can be captured altogether vs. a full frame system, however the lens stabilization and especially the Dual IS with certain camera models helps compensate for that fault. Also, if you're shooting outside during the daytime - you won't be bothered by its lack of light gathering. In fact, I have to use an ND filter with this lens for most shots during the daytime, especially if I'm trying to get wide aperture shots.
I did some test footage at 4k 24fps of some birds and my cats outside. Showed my friend afterward and he said "it looks like freaking National Geographic!" I got great images and video from G85 Natural picture profile all settings on lowest except Saturation at middle "0". I put the footage in Adobe Premiere also to play around with some LUTs. I was able to get some great film-like effects. That long lens with creamed-out background is very professional looking.
I don't see any defects on the lens or the pictures it takes. I didn't pixel peek at the edges at 4x zoom or anything like that. I hear the previous version of this lens had some portions of the picture that were softer than others, but I don't see that happening with this lens. Each picture is uniform and sharp. This one is a no-brainer if you're looking for a very long lens for your M43 system. I really can't justify the astronomical expense of a constant aperture long lens as compared to this lens. The benefits of the constant aperture just aren't worth that huge jump in cost unless you have very specific needs for it.
Works well for lunar photography. Also, great for small animals. However, for very small birds, such as hummingbirds, best results will be at ~10 feet or less. Otherwise, the photo will require an excessive crop in post production.
The plastic body feels solid, but it also feels a bit cheap. Another nitpick is the telescoping zoom. I'd much prefer if the zoom mechanism was internal. I sometimes press on the end of the lens while it's zoomed out. This pushes the lens in. And when I put the camera back to my eye I've got less than 300mm. Ooops! A constant aperture would also be great, but I understand these features would make the lens bigger and more expensive.
Big props to Panasonic for including the hood! It's very much appreciated. Hear that Canon?! None of this hood-sold-separately for $40 nonsense.
