Compatible with MFT Mount Cameras

The Panasonic Lumix G 42.5mm f1.7 Lens delivers superior portrait results to your Micro Four Thirds mount camera. Its ideal portrait focal range is combined with a large aperture and high quality optics for outstanding detail and background separation.

Ideal for Portraits and Still Life

The 42.5mm focal range translates to a full frame equivalent of 85mm on your MFT mount camera to deliver the perfect perspective for shooting weddings, still life and food photography.

Aspherical Lens Element

Razor-sharp images are delivered via a construction which features 10 elements in 8 groups. Its aspherical lens element ensures detail rich results with life-like colour representation.

Built-in Image Stabilisation

The quality lens components are combined with a built-in Power O.I.S image stabilisation which minimises camera shake to ensure critical sharpness, especially when shooting with slow shutter speeds and in difficult low-light scenarios.

Bright F/1.7 Aperture

The bright f/1.7 maximum aperture is constructed from a 7 bladed circular design that delivers beautifully rendered out-of-focus backgrounds. The ultra-fast aperture makes it possible to achieve excellent subject separation, helping to remove distractions from your shot and allow the viewer to be naturally drawn to your intended subject.

Stepping Motor Autofocus

Critical focus of fast moving action is achieved via its internal focus drive system. A built-in stepping motor delivers smooth, silent operation that works well for photo and video applications. Its design is compatible with the sensor drive technology that is found on specific Lumix cameras, delivering high-speed AF performance at a maximum 240fps.

31cm Focusing Distance

A minimum focusing distance of just 31cm adds creative versatility to the lens, allowing you to shoot irresistible food photos or distinctive still-life images with excellent detail across the entire frame.

Includes Lens Hood

The Panasonic Lumix G 42.5 mm f/1.7 lens (H-HS043E) also includes a lens hood to help reduce flare and ghosting while maximising contrast and clarity.
