Product Overview

Panasonic Lumix G Vario 45-150mm F4-5.6 ASPH Mega OIS is a telephoto zoom lens for Micro Four Thirds-mount. It covers the MFT image circle. Introduced by Panasonic in 2012, it has 12 elements in 9 groups.
Like most zoom lenses, the Panasonic Lumix G Vario 45-150mm F4-5.6 ASPH Mega OIS is externally-zooming. Unfortunately, Panasonic has opted to omit weather sealing for this lens, so owners should pay extra attention when shooting in incremental weathers.
As a telephoto zoom lens, the Panasonic Lumix G Vario 45-150mm F4-5.6 ASPH Mega 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.
