Product Overview

Panasonic LUMIX S 50mm F1.8 is a standard prime lens for the Leica L-mount mirrorless system. Like other L-mount lenses, it is solidly built with full weather sealing. At the same time, it is also characteristically larger than similar mirrorless offerings from the competition.
Still, because its maximum aperture is limited to f/1.8, the LUMIX S 50mm F1.8 is a moderately sized choice when compared to the S Pro 50mm F1.4. It is also competitively priced for L-mount.
As Panasonic has been at the forefront of promoting videography on its mirrorless cameras, this lens offers fast, silent autofocus and smooth aperture changes that aid efforts in this area, too.
