Lightweight super-telephoto lens for the Micro Four Thirds system, with a focal length equivalent to 400mm for full-frame. Comes in a bundle with the 1.4x teleconverter DMW-TC14 which turns the lens into a 280mm f/4 (or 560mm full frame equivalent).
A stepping motor provides fast and very quiet autofocus, an advantage in both still photograhy and video. The lens has a minimum focus of 1,15 m and is equipped with a focus range switch and a programmable AF button, useful when shooting moving subjects.
Image Stabilization (Power O.I.S.) makes it easier to get sharp images while shooting freehand. It can also be combined with the sensor-based stabilization in some of Panasonic's system cameras (Panasonics 5 Axis Dual I.S. 2) for even more efficient operation. A supplied rotating tripod collar can be used for low light photography that requires long shutter speeds.
The Panasonic Leica Elmarit 200mm f/2.8 Power O.I.S.** **has an advanced optical design consisting of 15 elements in 13 groups, where 2 lelements are made of UED glass which minimizes chromatic aberration.
A 2x teleconverter (DMW-TC20) is available as an accessory and provides a focal length of 400mm with brightness f / 5.6 (equivalent to 800mm for full-size).
