Panasonic LUMIX G Leica DG Nocticron 42.5mm f/1.2 ASPH Power OIS Lens

The Panasonic LUMIX G Leica DG Nocticron 42.5mm f/1.2 ASPH Power OIS Lens offers a 35mm focal length equivalent of 85mm. The lens has an aperture of f/1.2 which makes it suitable for portraits. The lens combines two aspherical elements that suppress spherical aberration and distortion and provides you with crisp clear images.

Nano Surface Technology

With Panasonic's Nano Surface technology the reflection is dramatically minimized at entire visual light range (380nm-780nm) by applying the extra-low refractive index coating with nano-sized structure on the surface of the lens. It results in the super clear picture with dramatic reduction of ghost and flare.

Middle-Telephoto Focal Distance

The popular 42.5 mm of middle-telephoto focal distance (Equivalent to 85mm on a 35mm camera) is definitely suitable for portrait with rich stereoscopic effect. Together with the high-speed aperture, you can utilize the beautiful soft focus for more impressive, creative shots. The lens also has an external aperture ring along with nine circular diaphragm blades for smooth out of focus areas of the frame even at large aperture settings.

Aperture Ring Control

The inclusion of newly developed stepping motor makes the focusing action smooth and silent for use in both photo and video recording. Notably the performance of AF is by far superior to the phase-difference AF when fast lens with smaller F value is used. When mounted on the cameras of LUMIX G, you can take advantage of the high-precision, high-speed Contrast AF system.

Optical Image Stabilization

The shallow depth of field is unique to the large aperture lens, even the slightest handshake can cause your images to appear blurry. That’s why the optical image stabilization integrated into the lens effectively compensates not only small fast movements but also large movements. You can finally say goodbye to blurry photos and focus on capturing crisp clear photos even when shooting in low light situations.
