Today, Nokishita-C leaked the key features of the upcoming Panasonic Lumix S 70-300mm F4.5-5.6 O.I.S. Lens. It is expected to be officially announced very soon.
Below are the key features of Panasonic Lumix S 70-300mm F4.5-5.6 O.I.S. lens:
- 17 elements in 11 groups (2 ED lenses, 1 UED lens, 1 UHR lens),
- minimum shooting distance 0.54m (at 70mm) /0.74m (at 300mm),
- maximum shooting 0.5 x (at 300 mm),
- filter diameter is 77 mm,
- size is φ84 mm x 148 mm,
- weight is 790 g
- Price: $1,247
The size and weight are standard in this class, but the filter size is a bit larger.
The shortest shooting distance is quite short, and the maximum shooting magnification of 0.5x at the telephoto end is wonderful. Lenses of other companies in this class have a maximum shooting magnification of about 0.2 to 0.3 times, so this proximity performance is likely to be a considerable advantage.
