It's a new cutting-edge interchangeable lens 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 new premium lens brand “X” for LUMIX G Micro System that complies with Micro Four Thirds System standard. Crystallizing Panasonic's optical technologies, new premium lens brand “X” 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.

The industry’s 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.In addition, the lens system features the inclusion of 2 ED lenses, which suppress chromatic aberration, contributing to high descriptive performance at entire zoom range.

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 image with dramatic reduction of ghost and flare.

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.

For a lens carrying a premium price tag, the performance is good but could be better in some areas. Excellent sharpness levels are maintained throughout the zoom range at maximum aperture, but sharpness towards the edges falls behind.

PhotoReview

Pitched at photographers who shoot wildlife and portraits, Lumix G X Vario PZ 45-175mm f/4-5.6 ASPH/POWER O.I.S. lens provides 3.9x zoom magnification and covers a focal length range equivalent to 90-350mm in 35mm format.

The Panasonic Lumix G X Vario PZ 45-175mm f/4-5.6 ASPH. POWER O.I.S. is a good albeit not superb telephoto zoom lens as some might have hoped from its "X" designation. The delivered resolution is decent across the image field and the focal length.

This is a great lens for nature shots of birds etc. and it gives sharp images when used properly. If you only rely on the lens anti- vibration control then you will often be disappointed. The powered zoom is a great option for the video enthusiast as it offers a very smooth zoom.

This lens is well built and feels solid but not too heavy. I've used it on a Panasonic G5 and GX1 and it feels balanced on both. Being able to use the zoom lever or twist the focus ring to focus is good and the zoom lever focusing is smooth and feels quite natural to use.

This is a great lens. Very compact and light and very sharp results. I don't like the absence of distance scale or zoom information on the lens. The zoom is shown in the finder or viewing screen. For Panasonic G series there is really no alternative.

It's great, I still can't get over the size, amazing! love the fact it's an internal zoom. The IQ is great absolutely great, and for the money perfect, in fact much better than the price would suggest.
