Product Overview

Panasonic Lumix G X Vario PZ 45-175mm F4.0-5.6 ASPH OIS is a super telephoto zoom lens for Micro Four Thirds-mount. It covers the MFT image circle. Introduced by Panasonic in 2011, it has 14 elements in 10 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. Panasonic has endowed it with power zoom feature, which can be quite useful for videography, but which makes the lens less suitable for stills work (with the unnecessary weight and complexity).
As a super telephoto zoom lens, the Panasonic Lumix G X Vario PZ 45-175mm F4.0-5.6 ASPH 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.
