It’s not a crime to want a lot out of your standard zoom lens. Want it to be Micro Four Thirds system-compatible? Want its zoom range to handle a variety of subjects, from portraits to landscapes to live events? Want an aspherical lens element to minimize distortion no matter what precise focal length you’re utilizing? Want fast autofocus, which precisely tracks your subject and adjusts automatically, with minimal fuss? At Adorama, we don’t think it’s too much to ask out of a lens, particularly if you’re talking about the PANASONIC LUMIX G VARIO 14-45MM f/3.5-5.6 MICRO 4/3 lens. This Micro Four Thirds-compatible lens is a Lumix lens with some serious capability, offering the versatility of a standard zoom with the quality that comes with good glass. Here’s how:

  • Smooth, crisp images. That’s thanks to Panasonic’s MEGA O.I.S. Optical Image Stabilizer which helps keep your photos sharp even when you’re hand-holding your camera and feeling a little shaky or weak in the knees. This will help ensure quality images even when you’re not at your best, or just being emotional, like when you were shooting your favorite cousin’s wedding. (You know you cried.) That’s steadiness you can appreciate in both time and space.
  • Let’s talk weight. It’s not a major concern for some photographers, but experienced peeps know that a lightweight lens is an absolute necessity the more you add to your mobile photography wares. With the Panasonic 14-45mm lens, we’re talking about a compact size of only 2.36” and a mere 6.88 ounces of weight, which translates to 195 grams for you metric folks. That’s enough traveling capability to make even the most mobile of vagabonds blush.
  • Designed to be standard to the Micro Four Thirds System, this Panasonic 14-45mm lens is also compatible with a number of cameras, which means it adds even more hardware versatility to its already versatile nature. If you already have a Panasonic camera body in the Micro Four Thirds System—or any other camera, for that matter – you can easily hook up this lens and get to shooting without missing a beat.
  • Interior design usually refers to living rooms, but what about the design of this interior? We’re talking multi-coated lens elements reducing ghosts and flare, an aspherical lens that reduces aberration and general yuckiness, and a 7-blade circular aperture diaphragm that will make out-of-focus areas look smooth and soft. That corrects a heck of a lot of flaws, even for professional and seasoned photographers.
  • We at Adorama mentioned it in the intro, but we have to talk about the MEGA O.I.S., Panasonic’s advanced Optical Image Stabilizer Technology. It gives you the freedom to shoot far-off subjects without worrying about blurring and other aberrations. If only life came with an advanced stabilizer technology.

Standard zoom, but not standard quality: the PANASONIC 14-45MM F/3.5-5.6 MICRO 4/3 lens is an all-in-one type of lens that will give you the freedom photograph just about whatever you want and still expect stunning results.
