Panasonic Corporation has announced the company is developing the first LEICA DG 100-400mm / F4.0-6.3 telephoto zoom lens (35mm camera equivalent: 200-800mm) based on the Micro Four Thirds system standard, further expanding the lineup of DSLM (Digital Single Lens Mirrorless) digital interchangeable lenses.

LEICA DG lenses are designed and developed to the LEICA-certified stringent quality standard to deliver excellent optical performance. Four single focal length LEICA DG lenses have already been introduced and are highly acclaimed by users worldwide.ii The introduction of this new lens shows Panasonic’s commitment to the continued expansion of its digital interchangeable lens lineup to meet wide-ranging customer needs.

The new telephoto zoom achieves exceptional imaging performance over the entire zoom range. The lens has a rugged splash and dustproof design for field use, and a highly mobile design. The Micro Four Thirds advantage of reduced size and weight allows handheld 800mm (35mm camera equivalent) telephoto shooting without using a tripod.

When mounted on LUMIX G cameras, this lens is compatible with the sensor drive at 240 fps to take advantage of the high-speed, high-precision AF (Auto Focus) with DFD (Depth From Defocus) technology. Combined with the POWER O.I.S. (Optical Image Stabiliser), users can focus on the subject quickly to capture crisp, clear images.

Pricing and availability for the new lens has not yet been announced.
