About the Panasonic 45-200mm

PANASONIC 45-200mm F/4-5.6 MICRO 4/3

If the PANASONIC 45-200mm f/4-5.6 MICRO 4/3 zoom lens looks powerful, that’s because it is. But there’s more to a good lens than raw power—there’s also a high degree of craftsmanship and design required to make every shot beautiful. Luckily, the Panasonic 45-200 lens succeeds there, as well:

Product Highlights
  • With 1:5 magnification and a 3.3’ minimum focus distance, there’s plenty of room to play with even when utilizing the zoom on your Panasonic 45-200mm lens to its fullest extent.
  • With 13 lens groups and 16 lens elements, the design is sophisticated enough to prevent chromatic aberrations and promote crisp, healthy photographs.
  • At less than one pound (13.4 ounces, actually), this lens is surprisingly light and durable, giving you all the freedom to put it into action.

Panasonic Micro Four Thirds lenses are part of the larger Micro Four Thirds system and are interchangeable with many digital cameras in this format. Bottom line? If you want more out of a lens, we suggest contacting your local space agency.

When it’s time to take a serious picture, nothing will suffice but the most serious of lenses. Enter, the PANASONIC 45-200mm f/4-5.6 MICRO 4/3. Just one look at it will convince you that it’s substantial. Of course, there’s more to a piece of photography equipment like this than just how it looks on the outside; what’s more important is what’s going on inside. To that end, we’re going to steer you through just a few of our favorite features and characteristics of this Panasonic 45-200mm lens in order to provide a list of everything you need to make one very serious—and seriously good—lens.

  • Intricate design. You’d usually expect a word like “intricate” to better apply to a smaller, more compact lens design. But even a giant space telescope requires intricate designs if it’s going to produce the beautiful imagery of which it’s capable. So, too, is the Panasonic 45-200 lens intricately-designed on the inside, featuring 13 lens groups and 16 lens elements, all structured together to provide a narrower angle of view that makes this lens capable of handling beautiful far-off shots of landscapes and wildlife.
  • Yet one of the advantages of this substantial Panasonic 45-200 lens is that, well, it’s not all that substantial when it comes to the weight. Its paltry 13.4 ounces is lighter than it looks, giving this lens the ability to travel well. And that’s good news, because you’re going to want to take all sorts of outdoor shots with this lens. Adding less than a pound to your travel bag, this lens won’t only justify its own space, but it will be one of the most efficient additions to your photographic toolbox.
  • There is also a surprising amount of versatility in the Panasonic 45-200 lens. The f/stop range of 4-22 and the minimum focus distance of 3.3’ mean that you’ll be able to take close-up shots with more ease than you might have imagined. The lens is crafted for a stunning amount of clarity and crispness for these shots, as well, which means that it offers true professional versatility—which is something rare in a lens of this design.
  • Easily interchangeable because it’s built for the Micro Four Thirds Lens mount systems, you won’t have any trouble finding a comfortable home for your Panasonic lens. And that’s good news, because you can park this lens on a camera body with plenty of processing power if you want to squeeze the most performance out of every shot.
  • Fast and accurate autofocus is sometimes a foregone conclusion when it comes to pieces from Panasonic, but it’s worth mentioning here because of the demands you may make on a lens of this power. It requires fast and accurate autofocus if you’re going to steal that beautiful landscape shot or sneak a photograph of a deer across the horizon.

At Adorama, we offer a wide variety of lenses, but few with the raw power and beauty of the PANASONIC 45-200mm f/4-5.6 MICRO 4/3 zoom lens. But if you don’t want to take our word for it, there’s only one thing to be done—try the lens and see for yourself.
