Product Overview

Panasonic Lumix G X Vario 35-100mm F2.8 II Power OIS is a telephoto zoom lens for Micro Four Thirds-mount. It covers the MFT image circle. Introduced by Panasonic in 2017, it has 18 elements in 13 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.
As a telephoto zoom lens with a bright maximum aperture, the Panasonic Lumix G X Vario 35-100mm F2.8 II Power OIS is well suited for sports and portrait photography. Built-in image stabilization makes the lens easier to use handheld, and can be quite valuable for landscape works.
