The LUMIX S 20-60mm F3.5-5.6 is a compact, lightweight standard zoom lens that covers from ultrawide 20mm to standard 60mm focal length for versatile use including landscapes and snaps. Wide viewing angle makes it easier to shoot indoors where room space is limited and stunning close-up capability of 0.15m (maximum magnification 0.43x) well supports tabletop photography.
The new LUMIX S 20-60mm F3.5-5.6 also ensure smooth, high quality video recording because of a mechanism that suppresses focus breathing, which was a fatal problem in all interchangeable lenses designed for still image photography.
Comprising 11 elements in 9 groups, the use of 2 aspherical lenses and 3 ED (Extra-low Dispersion) lenses effectively suppresses both axial chromatic aberration and chromatic aberration of magnification. Astigmatism is also corrected with these aspherical lenses, achieving high resolving performance. Furthermore, a UHR (Ultra-High Refractive Index) lens achieves uniform image quality from the center to edges of the image while contributing to downsizing of the lens unit.
With its compact, approximately 350g of light weight, the LUMIX S 20-60mm F3.5-5.6 features stunning mobility. The rugged dust/splash-resistant* design withstands use under harsh conditions even at 10 degrees below zero for high mobility.
In addition, a fluorine coating on the front element repel water and oil and prevent them from attaching. The filter diameter is 67 mm, with a 9-blade circular aperture diaphragm.
