    "Great lens...Excellent lens. I got this for free with the camera. It is such an amazing lens for the value."

    See all customer reviews

    Product Description

    The LUMIX S 85mm F1.8 is a large-aperture medium-telephoto fixed focal length lens, compatible with all L-mount cameras for maximum versatility. The S85 enhances portrait photography with its beautiful bokeh effect in a compact and lightweight body. Comprising of 9 elements in 8 groups, the 2 ED (Extra-low Dispersion) lenses effectively suppress both axial chromatic aberration and chromatic aberration of magnification. The LUMIX S 85mm F1.8 provides smooth defocus gradation from the focus peak to the neighboring area of the image as well as smooth, round bokeh of point light source without vignetting. It also excels in video recording performance with a mechanism that suppresses focus breathing, which was a fatal problem of all interchangeable lenses designed for still image photography. The rugged dust/splash-resistant* design withstands use under harsh conditions even at 14 degrees Fahrenheit. * Dust and Splash Resistant does not guarantee that damage will not occur if this lens is subjected to direct contact with dust and water. • L-Mount is a trademark or registered trademark of Leica Camera AG. • Design and specifications are subject to change without notice.
