The
Panasonic LUMIX G X VARIO PZ 45-175mm/F4.0-5.6 ASPH./POWER O.I.S. (H-PS45175) with electric-powered zoom operation from the premium lens brand "X" for LUMIX G Micro System that complies with Micro Four Thirds System standard. Crystallizing Panasonic's optical technologies, the new "X" lens features superb image rendering for lifelike textures, crisp edge-to-edge contrast, a unique Nano Surface Coating for minimal ghosts and flaring and natural atmospheres with remarkable transparency.

Multi-Actuator Floating Inner Focus System

The industrys first adoption of Multi-Actuator Floating Inner Focus System which controls 3 lens groups separately by the individual actuator achieves downsizing in both size and weight. It also achieves high descriptive performance for resolution and contrast at entire zoom range 45-175mm (35mm camera equivalent: 90-350mm) without changing the overall length.

New X Series Compact Hybrid Design


Although the LUMIX G X VARIO PZ 45-175mm/F4.0-5.6 ASPH./POWER O.I.S. covers long zoom range from standard to telephoto, it boasts outstanding compactness with approx. 90.0 mm in length and approx. 210g in weight to realize ultra-high mobility. Notably, the astonishingly short overall length is realized by the inclusion of 2 aspherical lenses. The zoom lever allows stable zooming with ease even when shooting moving subject.

The new LUMIX G X VARIO PZ 45-175mm/F4.0-5.6 ASPH./POWER O.I.S. lens offers a versatile zoom range of 45-175 mm (35 mm camera equivalent: 90-350 mm). Notably high contrast and resolution is assured for images shot at its wide-end, which means it is suitable for taking portrait. In addition, subject distant away like sports or wildlife animal can be captured sharply even at tele-end.

ED Glass and Exclusive Nano Surface Coating

The lens system features the inclusion of 2 ED lenses, which suppress chromatic aberration, contributing to high descriptive performance at entire zoom range. Plus, Panasonic's Nano Surface Coating technology is adopted to minimize the reflection at entire visual light range (380nm-780nm) by applying the extra-low refractive index coating with nano-sized structure on the surface of the lens. It results in the super clear picture with dramatic reduction of ghost and flare.

Featuring POWER O.I.S.


The POWER O.I.S. (Optical Image Stabilizer) which is newly integrated in the LUMIX G X VARIO PZ 45-175mm/F4.0-5.6 ASPH./POWER O.I.S. makes it easy to shoot super clear shots even in low-lit situations such as in night time or indoors. With the improved sensitivity of the gyro sensor, the new POWER O.I.S. suppresses large, slow movement 2x more effectively

Rapid Focusing Support and Circular Aperture Diaphragm

When mounted on the cameras of LUMIX G Micro System, users can take advantage of the contrast AF system and the convenient functions applied from it. Adopting an inner focus system driven by a stepping motor, the superior optical design realizes outstanding smoothness to support the Light Speed AF of approx. 0.15 second. By speeding up the aperture control, shutter time lag is also shortened by approx. 20% compared with the LUMIX G VARIO 45-200mm /F4.0-5.6/MEGA O.I.S.7 aperture blades consists a circular aperture diaphragm and produces an attractive smoothness in out-of-focus areas even shooting at large aperture.

Two Lens Barrel Color Options


Offering more fashionable, sophisticated look with two color option of black and silver, the new LUMIX G X VARIO PZ 45-175mm/F4.0-5.6 ASPH./POWER O.I.S. perfectly matches any color of cameras from LUMIX G Micro System to be a part of the photographic life.

Theodore C. from Phoenix, AZ on July 11, 2013:
Excellent lens for the price! It is not the brightest MFT zoom. It is not the longest MFT zoom. But it is the smallest and lightest that covers this range, it has decent aperture and sharpness and does not extend when zooming, so it is PERFECT for my GX1.

Great customer service from Samy's. I had to call and reroute the shipment since I will not be home and they were very helpful in accomodating the request. I also appreciate that they require a signature to protect the buyer. This lens is for an addition to my new lens for GH3 and it is perfect. I was going to purchase the 35-100 2.8 but I did not want to spend too much money since I already purchased the 12-35 2.8 and the Olympus 45 1.8. I am not dissapointed as it has a built in stabilizer and the pictures came out great. Samy's has the best price and great customer service !!

Floyd O. from Manitou Spgs, CO on March 15, 2013:
Got this for my new GH3. Samy's had the best price. I own a pretty complete Lumix lens assortment for my GX-1 but wanted a PZ lens for the incredible video features of the GH3 and I'm not disappointed. Very sharp lens, perfect focal range, quiet PZ for video, internal zoom makes for a nice compact lens. Decent build as well. I highly recommend.
