Panasonic has just officially announced the new Panasonic Lumix S 35mm F1.8 Lens. It is a sleek and compact wide-angle prime lens designed for the full-frame L-mount mirrorless cameras. Landscapes, portraits, and snapshots will benefit from 35mm’s bright maximum aperture of F1.8, which allows you to control the shallow depth of field. Its unparalleled optical design and ability to capture sharp corners delivers detailed stills and smooth video. When mounted on a gimbal, it has near the same center of gravity as other F1.8 Series lenses.
