Improve your Shooting Versatility

Push the creative limits of your Panasonic or Olympus Mirrorless Micro Four Thirds camera with the Panasonic Leica DG Vario-Elmar 100-400mm f/4-6.3 ASPH Power OIS Lens. Its impressive focal range and relatively compact size is well suited to the mirrorless system and is great for photographers who like to travel light, but also be sufficiently prepared for any shooting opportunity.

Versatile 200-800mm (35mm equiv) Zoom

Delivering a powerful 200-800mm equivalent focal range the lens is ideal for a broad range of shooting scenarios. Suitable for portraits, weddings, sports, wildlife and more, it is sure to add a wide variety of shooting possibilities to your repertoire.

Quality Lens Construction

Deserving of its Leica name, the 100-400mm lens features a high quality internal construction that consists of 20 elements in 13 groups. One aspherical ED element, one Ultra-Extra-Low Dispersion element and two Extra-Low Dispersion elements are combined to produce tack-sharp results across the 100-400mm focal range. Its lens array is designed to help minimise aberrations and colour fringing resulting in accurate colour reproduction and tonality with impressive edge-to-edge clarity.

Power OIS with Dual IS Compatibility

Image performance is further improved with thanks to the POWER O.I.S image stabilisation system. Designed to effectively minimise blurry images caused by camera shake, it ensures the entire 100-400mm focal range can be utilized confidently, even when shooting handheld. Compatibility with the Dual I.S. function found in some Lumix cameras such as the Panasonic GX8, helps to further improve the clarity of your shots.

Focusing Limiter Switch

An autofocusing motor rated at 240fps provides fast, consistent focusing performance. With near silent operation it is also suitable for shooting video. A focus limiter helps constrain the focusing range of the lens for better accuracy when tracking fast moving objects.

1.3m Minimum Focusing Distance

Its minimum focusing distance of just 1.3m provides a maximum magnification of 0.5x (35mm equiv.), allowing you to shoot macro-style images and capture the intricate details of smaller objects.

Pleasing Bokeh Rendition

The rounded nine-blade aperture diaphragm delivers beautifully rendered bokeh areas, providing a pleasing, distraction free blurred background effect.

Includes Rotating Tripod Collar

A included removable rotating collar allows you to attach the camera and lens to a tripod or monopod to help take the weight off during day-long shooting. Its rotating design allows easy transitioning from landscape to portrait orientation.

Built-in Retractable Lens Hood

A built-in retractable lens hood is well suited to mirrorless users, keeping the overall size of the lens down whilst providing better contrast, reduced flare and improved overall clarity.

Dust & Moisture Resistant Construction

With its dust and moisture resistant characteristics, the Panasonic Leica DG 100-400 mm f/4-6.3 ASPH Power OIS lens will satisfy the most demanding professionals. It is perfect for those who require a combination of outstanding image quality and durable, high quality construction.
