Panasonic H-FS100300 Lumix G Vario 100 - 300 mm / F4.0 - 5.6 MEGA O.I.S. Zoom Lens

Features in Detail | Recommended Accessories | Enlarged Image

The Panasonic H-FS100300 Lumix G Vario 100 - 300 mm / F4.0 - 5.6 / MEGA O.I.S. telephoto zoom lens realizes 300mm (35mm camera equivalent: 600mm) handheld ultra-telephoto zoom shots with an astonishingly compact and lightweight profile. The lens allows photographers to shoot challenging subjects from afar, including sports, wild animals and aircraft, without carrying a huge conventional ultra-telephoto zoom lens and a heavy tripod. Panasonic's MEGA O.I.S. (Optical Image Stabilizer) powerfully compensates for the hand shake which severely affect the zoom shots to suppress blur.

The Lumix G Vario 100-300mm / F4.0-5.6 / MEGA O.I.S. is comprised of the lens unit with 17 elements in 12 groups including an ED lens. Adopting the ED lens in the first lens group, chromatic aberration is effectively suppressed to render sharp, high contrast images with stable optical performance over the entire zoom range. The integration of stepping motor with exclusive zoom tracking control and inner focus drive systems realizes accurate and high speed contrast AF while keeping its operation as silent as possible.

Seven blades give the aperture a rounded shape that produces an attractively smooth effect in out-of-focus areas when shooting at larger aperture settings. Its highly reliable metal mount assures durability for active use, and multi-coated lens elements minimize ghosts and flare to further enhance its shooting performance.

3x Ultra Telephoto Zoom Lens with Zoom Range From 200 mm to 600 mm (35mm Equivalent)
The Panasonic H-FS100300 Lumix G Vario 100 - 300 mm / F4.0 - 5.6 / MEGA O.I.S. telephoto zoom lens realizes 300mm (35mm camera equivalent: 600mm) handheld ultra-telephoto zoom shots with an astonishingly compact and lightweight profile. The lens allows photographers to shoot challenging subjects from afar, including sports, wild animals and aircraft, without carrying a huge conventional ultra-telephoto zoom lens and a heavy tripod.
Tracking Focus In Video Recording With Silent Auto Focus And Exposure Control
The camera locks on and automatically 'tracks' the subject as it moves, continuously adjusting the focus settings for best results.
MEGA O.I.S. (Optical Image Stabilizer)
The smaller and lighter the camera body, the greater the hand-shake effect during shooting. MEGA O.I.S., an image stabilizing function, has been highly valued by compact camera users. An internal LSI processes the output of the system's gyrosensors approximately 4,000 times a second to provide accurate compensation for even tiny amounts of hand-shake. MEGA O.I.S. is especially effective for hand-held shooting with a zoom lens.
17 Elements In 12 Groups Including An ED Lens For Superb Optical Performance
The Lumix G Vario 100 - 300 mm lens uses 17 elements in 12 groups including an ED lens element to help deliver an outstanding optical performance. ED lenses suppress chromatic aberration, helping you capture accurate, true-to-life shots with minimum color bleeding. Adopting the ED lens in the first lens group, chromatic aberration is effectively suppressed to render sharp, high contrast images with stable optical performance over the entire zoom range.
High-Speed, Silent Contrast AF For Both Photos And Videos With Inner Focus Drive System
When mounted on the latest Lumix G Micro System Cameras, the H-FS100300 lens allows use of the advanced contrast AF system, which includes a Face Recognition function, for more convenient, more enjoyable shooting. The integration of stepping motor with exclusive zoom tracking control and inner focus drive systems realizes accurate and high speed contrast AF while keeping its operation as silent as possible.
Circular Aperture Diaphragm
Seven aperture blades give the aperture a rounded shape that, when shooting at larger aperture, produces an attractive smoothness in out-of-focus areas for smooth, soft, background defocusing.
Minimum Focus Distance of 4.9 Feet Over The Entire Zoom Range
With its minimum focus distance of 4.9 feet (1.5 m) throughout the zoom range, the Lumix G Vario 100 - 300 mm lens provides a maximum photographic magnification of 0.42x (35mm equivalent).
Multiple Lens Coatings Minimize Ghosts And Flare
Utmost care is exercised in coating the Lumix G lenses to suppress ghosts and flaring, while ensuring optimum color balance. In addition to a standard broadband anti-reflection coating, Lumix G lenses feature a coating that reduces the reflectance of light that enters at an angle. This multicoating process greatly improves the image rendering performance when shooting against a light source. In addition, the bonded surfaces of cemented lenses are also given an original multicoating process to further reduce reflection. This results in high-quality images with superb clarity.
Durable Metal Mount
The Lumix G Vario 100-300mm/F4.0 - 5.6 ASPH. lens features a highly reliable metal mount.
