Product Overview

Panasonic Lumix G Vario 100-300mm F4-5.6 II Power OIS is a super telephoto zoom lens for Micro Four Thirds-mount. It covers the MFT image circle. Introduced by Panasonic in 2017, it has 17 elements in 12 groups.
Like most zoom lenses, the Panasonic Lumix G Vario 100-300mm F4-5.6 II Power OIS is externally-zooming.
As a super telephoto zoom lens, the Panasonic Lumix G Vario 100-300mm F4-5.6 II Power OIS can be quite useful for wild-life and landscape photography. Built-in image stabilization is almost a must-have at this focal range, and this lens does not disappoint on this front.
