Panasonic Lumix G Vario 14-140mm F3.5-5.6 II ASPH Power OIS

Along with the Panasonic Lumix DC-G95 (B&H/ Adorama), Panasonic also announced the new Panasonic Lumix G Vario 14-140mm F3.5-5.6 II ASPH Power OIS lens. It is a minor update to the original version, with the only change being the addition of some degree of weather-sealing. This new lens costs $597.99, first available for Pre-Order at B&H/ Adorama.


  • Designed for Micro Four Thirds mirrorless cameras, this lens provides a 28-280mm equivalent focal length range to cover wide-angle to telephoto perspectives.
  • Three aspherical elements and two extra-low dispersion elements combine to minimize spherical and chromatic aberrations, as well as distortion, throughout the zoom range for increased clarity and sharpness.
  • Multi-coated elements help to suppress lens flare and ghosting for greater contrast and color accuracy.
  • POWER O.I.S. compensates for camera shake in order to realize sharper photos and videos when shooting handheld.
  • Stepping motor provides smooth and near-silent autofocus that pairs with an inner focusing design for quick performance. The AF system is also compatible with Lumix cameras’ high-speed contrast-detection systems for focusing speeds up to 240 fps.
  • Splash and dust-resistant design benefits working in inclement weather conditions.
  • Rounded seven-blade diaphragm produces a smooth out-of-focus quality when working with shallow depth of field techniques.
