Product Overview

Panasonic Lumix S 24-105mm F4 Macro OIS is a standard zoom lens for Leica L-mount. It covers the full-frame image circle. Introduced by Panasonic in 2019, it has 16 elements in 13 groups.
Like most zoom lenses, the Panasonic Lumix S 24-105mm F4 Macro OIS is externally-zooming. For incremental weathers, Panasonic is kind enough to include weather sealing.
A standard zoom lens with moderate aperture, the Panasonic Lumix S 24-105mm F4 Macro OIS is more of a "volume seller" than a premium option. Still, some photographers may find the results "good enough". The lens is also stabilized, making it even easier to use for videos and stills alike.

The Panasonic Lumix S 24-105mm F4 Macro O.I.S. is the de facto starter lens for most entering the L-mount system. The lens focuses to 11.8 inches, which is good enough for 1:2 macro magnification. It's built well, and can be used in all types of weather with the right camera.
Pros
  • Sharp optics
  • Good macro capability
  • In-body stabilization
Cons
  • Some barrel distortion
