The company’s announced¬†a “Lumix¬†G 25 mm/F1.7” single focal length lens. They say it’s¬†a “50mm (35 mm camera equivalent)” to¬†offer almost the same viewing angle and sense of perspective as the human eye.

The new lens should also¬†support digital signal exchange at 240 fps to comply with the high-speed auto focus with “Depth from Defocus” technology on the Lumix¬†G camera.

Meanwhile, they’re also working on a super telephoto micro-4/3 lens too and it’s being released under the Leica brand. The optics will offer¬†100-400mm / F4.0-6.3 telephoto zoom (35mm equivalent: 200-800mm).

Panasonic say it also features high speed digital signal exchange at 240 fps and has a powered optical image stabiliser. In addition, the new lens is splash/dust-proof to withstand heavy field use.
