    See all customer reviews

    Product Description

    The LUMIX S 50mm F1.8 is a large-diameter standard lens compatible with all L-mount cameras for maximum versatility, yet it has a compact size and weight. Ideal for a wide range of photography, from landscape to portraits and snapshots, this lens uses three aspherical lenses to achieve both high depiction performance and beautiful bokeh. An excellent choice for video, it suppresses breathing during focus and realizes smooth exposure change by micro-step control of the aperture, enabling high-quality video expression. By using one ED lens, chromatic aberration is well suppressed. This compact, lightweight, and dust-*, splash-*, and low-temperature resistant lens is easy to carry and dependable, even when shooting outdoors. * 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.

I only dislike that it has to be locked to be used(like a prime lens, vs a lens you could zoom in and out). ...If you've never owned a super-telephoto, this is the lens. I shopped other lenses, but I was budget constrained. "
