Product Overview

Panasonic Lumix S Pro 70-200mm F4 OIS is a telephoto zoom lens for Leica L-mount. It covers the full-frame image circle. Introduced by Panasonic in 2019, it has 23 elements in 17 groups.
Photographers will be pleased by the fact that the lens is internally-zooming, meaning that the barrel does not extend when the focal length is changed. This helps balance and weather sealing; it is also great for long-term durability, as there is less chance for moisture and dirt to get in. For incremental weathers, Panasonic is kind enough to include weather sealing. On the lens barrel, one can find a physical aperture ring. Those who wish to focus manually can have the best of both worlds (with the usual caveats).
As a telephoto zoom lens, the Panasonic Lumix S Pro 70-200mm F4 OIS is well suited for landscape and portrait photography, though its relatively dark maximum aperture limits its performance for indoor sports. Built-in image stabilization makes the lens easier to use handheld, and can be quite valuable for landscape works. Owners will also like the available tripod collar.
