Panasonic LUMIX G X VARIO PZ 45-175mm Lens

Panasonic has unveiled the LUMIX G X VARIO PZ 45-175mm lens, which offers superb image rendering for lifelike textures and crisp, edge-to-edge contrast. The lens features a unique Nano Surface Coating technology that minimizes reflections at entire visual light range (380nm-780nm) for a dramatic reduction of ghosts and light flare, resulting in outstandingly clear picture quality. The new lens system also has two Extra-low Dispersion (ED) lenses, which suppress chromatic aberration and contribute to high descriptive performance across the entire zoom range 45-175mm. The POWER O.I.S. (Optical Image Stabilizer) integrated into the LUMIX G X VARIO PZ 45-175mm/F4.0-5.6 ASPH./POWER O.I.S. makes it easy to shoot sharp images even in low-lit situations. With improved sensitivity of the gyro sensor, the new POWER O.I.S. also suppresses large, slow movements two times more effectively while small, fast movements are compensated for by the conventional MEGA O.I.S. The new Panasonic LUMIX G X VARIO PZ 45-175mm lens should be available in September 2011 for $449.99. [Amazon]
