Got a micro four-thirds camera? Fancy a new lens? Panasonic may have a treat for you very soon.
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.
