Panasonic LUMIX Mirrorless Micro Four Thirds lenses deliver a no-compromise approach to optical performance for modern interchangeable camera enthusiasts. This *100-300mm F4.0-5.6 classic enhanced lens has been updated for the outdoors with a splashproof and dustproof design (when mounted on a compatible LUMIX G Mirrorless camera).

Make the switch from bulky DSLRs to the smaller, lighter, more compact Mirrorless Micro Four Thirds system cameras and lenses from Panasonic LUMIX. (*200-600mm 35mm Camera Lens Equivalent)
Drawing subjects in from a distance, this 300mm (35mm camera equivalent: 600mm) ultra-telephoto zoom lens is ideal for capturing intense action sports, or even animals you couldnt normally get close to. Unlike conventional lenses, LUMIX G lenses like this one are small, lightweight and fit perfectly in the palm of your hand. Now you can take professional-looking shots of an athlete, and even capture individual drops of water falling through the air.
SPLASH AND DUSTPROOF
Brave the elements in nearly any kind of weather or shooting location. This lens features a splash/dustproof construction* that is tough enough to withstand even heavy field use. It protects the lens system inside from sand, rain and more, making it perfect for shooting under harsh conditions. Now there is nothing holding you back from capturing the creative nature or landscape shots you want. *The lens supports this feature in conjunction with splash/dustproof LUMIX cameras.
Capture scenes carefree or at the spur of the moment. The optical image stabilization (O.I.S.) technology built directly into the lens ensures your photos will look great, with sharp blur-free contours across the entire picture.
Taking highly popular MEGA O.I.S. further, this advanced technology immediately compensates even large camera shake and vibrations that may occur in photography. So you can capture true-to-life scenes without the need for a tripod. In the end, youll enjoy wonderfully crisp images.
With video support any user has everything they need for recording with their LUMIX camera. Not only does it perform smooth aperture changes, so there are no sudden jumps in exposure, it also boasts a silent design for enhanced capture of the scenes audio. Whats more, the stunning AF performance of this lens records excellent 4K video, where precise focusing is essential.
Extra-Low Dispersion (ED) lenses correct chromatic aberration rendering sharp, high-contrast images with clear colors from corner to corner.
For lenses that are capable of compensating distortion, the horizontal axis of the MTF shows the distance from the center of the corrected image.
