Panasonic Lumix G Vario HD 12-32mm F3.5-5.6 Mega OIS Lens The Panasonic Lumix G Vario 12-32mm f/3.5-5.6 ASPH. is a wide-angle to short telephoto focal length zoom lens for Micro Four Thirds format cameras. Its 35mm focal length equivalence is 24-64mm. With a retractable design, the lens is quite compact, especially when the camera is powered down. A simple turn of the zoom ring extends the lens when ready to shoot and retracts it when not shooting.

Panasonic's MEGA Optical Image Stabilization provides compensation against camera shake in order to create images with less blur when shooting in low light or anytime the shutter speed is slowed. Three aspherical lens elements and one extra-low dispersion (ED) element minimize aberrations and contribute to high contrast, color-accurate imaging. The lens can focus as close as 7.9" at the wide-angle end and as close as 12" at standard and telephoto lengths.

  • MEGA Optical Image Stabilization system compensates for camera shake and reduces blur.
  • Three aspherical lens elements and one ED element minimize aberrations and contribute to sharp, high contrast imaging.
