New Interchangeable Lens for Micro Four Thirds System LUMIX G 25 mm/F1.7 Single Focal Length Lens Under Development

Today Panasonic announces that the company is developing a LUMIX G 25 mm/F1.7 single focal length lens as a digital interchangeable lens for the Micro Four Thirds system.*

This lens is a 50mm (35 mm camera equivalent) single focal length lens with large diameter. The 50mm focus distance offers almost the same viewing angle and sense of perspective as the human eye which means users can enjoy shooting a portrait or scenery as they see it.

The new lens also supports high speed digital signal exchange at 240 fps to comply with the high-speed, high-precision AF (Auto Focus) with DFD (Depth from Defocus) technology on the LUMIX G camera.

Panasonic will continue to further advance its product development to meet the diverse needs of customers in the expanding interchangeable lens camera market.
