It's a new cutting-edge interchangeable lens LUMIX G X VARIO PZ 14-42mm/F3.5-5.6 ASPH./POWER O.I.S. with electric-powered zoom operation from the new premium lens brand “X” for LUMIX G Micro System that complies with Micro Four Thirds System standard. Crystallizing Panasonic's optical technologies, new premium lens brand “X” features superb image rendering for lifelike textures, crisp edge-to-edge contrast, a unique Nano Surface Coating for minimal ghosts and flaring and natural atmospheres with remarkable transparency.
Comprising of 9 lenses in 8 groups, the lens system features excellent contrast at entire zoom range. The inclusion of 4 aspherical lenses that helps achieving the downsizing of lens unit also improves optical performance by minimising distortion, even at the 28 mm wide end. The 2 ED lenses effectively compensates for the chromatic aberration. And, the retractable-type zoom lens boasts outstanding compactness with approx. 26.8 mm (When the lens is retracted) in length and approx. 95g in weight to realize ultra-high mobility.
Panasonic's Nano Surface Coating technology is adopted to minimise the reflection at entire visual light range (380nm-780nm) by applying the extra-low refractive index coating with nano-sized structure on the surface of the lens. It results in the super clear image with dramatic reduction of ghost and flare.
Adopting an inner focus system driven by a stepping motor, the superior optical design realizes outstanding smoothness to support the high speed AF system of LUMIX G cameras. It achieves approx. 0.1 second Light Speed AF* thanks to the downsizing of focus lens and its amount of movement. By speeding up the aperture control, shutter time lag is also shortened by approx. 40% compared with the LUMIX G VARIO 14-42mm/ F3.5-5.6 ASPH. / MEGA O.I.S..**
*The time for focusing on the subject is measured with the DMC-GF3 to move the lens position to ""2m"" from ""infinity"" position at wide-end. Panasonic measurement method.
**Measured with DMC-GF3. The time required to start exposure after the shutter button is fully pressed after the lens position is moved from “infinity” to “2m”. The zoom position is at wide-end. The firmware of the GF3 must be updated to Ver.1.1 or later. Panasonic measurement method.

Smooth zoom, perfect video
For all your photo assignments, this ultra-compact lens is a must-have in your photo-taking gear. Its retractable optics increases your mobility while delivering smooth zooming and blur-free video recording. So you can capture sharp wide-angle to medium telephoto scenes at a focul distance of about 3x in all kinds of shooting situations: landscapes, daily goings-on or portraits. And revel in fantastic, high image quality results.
Power O.I.S. - ultra sharp photos
Capture scenes carefree or at the spur of the moment. The optical image stabilisation (O.I.S.) technology built directly into the lens ensures your photos will look great, with sharp blur-free contours across the entire picture.
Nano Surface Coating - clarity from all angles
Put an end to unwanted ghosting and flaring - the Nano Surface Coating has been applied to lenses within the system. This special, ultra-thin coating was developed originally by Panasonic to reduce bothersome reflections across the entire light spectrum. The result: crystal-clear pictures even if you're photographing a light source in the dark.
Power Zoom - the smart way to zoom
With this feature, you have yet another smart Panasonic innovation. That's because lenses with Power Zoom have a fully automatic, integrated motor that drives the zoom function - making for easy operation. This is especially great to have when recording a video: for example, you can determine the speed of the zoom so that you can capture subjects precisely even when zooming slowly. The moto is also whisper-quiet for more enjoable subtle shooting.
HD Video Support - perfect video-recording
With HD 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 scene's audio. What's more, it offers excellent tracking performance - so you won't miss a moment of the action.
9 elements in 8 groups
2 extra-low dispersion lenses
Aspherical (ASPH) lenses reduce size and weight, effectively preventing spherical and distortion aberration.
Extra-Low Dispersion (ED) lenses correct chromatic aberration rendering sharp, high-contrast images with clear colours from corner to corner.
