Panasonic Has Released Two New Macro 30mm F/2.8 and 42.5mm F/1.7 Lenses

The collection of Panasonic’s Lumix G micro four thirds lenses has just got bigger with the addition of two new items, the Panasonic LUMIX G MACRO 30mm f/2.8 ASPH and Panasonic LUMIX G 42.5mm f/1.7 ASPH lenses. Both provide a nice aperture and feature Image Stabilization, which is a great news for all GH4 and BMPCC owners who are shooting a lot of handheld. That also should be well accepted by many micro four thirds enthusiasts, that don’t like to attach any optical adapters to their camera and prefer to use the mount natively.

Furthermore, the lens’ POWER O.I.S. system effectively compensates unwanted movement caused by handshake which will allow many shooters to get more stable and infocus shots, even in challenging low light situations. With 35mm equivalent of 85 mm, and aperture of 1.7 the Panasonic Lumix G 42.5mm is the perfect match for creating excellent close-up shots with shallow depth of field and beautiful bokeh background effects.
