Lightweight Ultra Wide-Angle Zoom Lens

The Lumix S 14-28mm F4-5.6 MACRO is a lightweight ultra wide-angle zoom lens, designed for the L-Mount system. It covers 14mm ultra wide-angle to 300mm telephoto for high performance video and stills shooting. This lens joins the current range of compact zoom lenses, which includes the Lumix S 14-28mm F4-5.6 MACRO (S-R1428), Lumix S 20-60mm F3.5-5.6 (S-R2060) and the Lumix S 70-300mm F4.5-5.6 MACRO O.I.S. (S-R70300).

The Lumix S 14-28mm F4-5.6 MACRO weighs in at a compact 0.345 kg, while boasting impressive macro capability with a magnification of 0.25x (at 14mm) - 0.5x (at 28mm). The wide angle of view supports landscape shots and is also suitable for solo content creators filming themselves at arm’s length. A rugged dust/splash resistant design ensures reliable field use in challenging conditions and temperatures down to -10 degrees Celsius. In addition, the front lens element has a fluorine coating to repel liquids such as water or oil. An ND/PL filter with 77mm diameter can be attached.

The new lens and the Lumix S 20-60mm F3.5-5.6 lens feature a common overall length and positioning of controls. The similar size and centre of gravity makes it simple to switch between them when an S Series camera is mounted on a gimbal, for example.

The Lumix S 14-28mm F4-5.6 MACRO is comprised of fourteen lens elements in ten groups including one aspherical ED (Extra-Low Dispersion) lens, one aspherical lens, three ED (Extra-Low Dispersion) lenses and one UHR (Ultra High Refractive Index) lens. The use of aspherical lenses realises beautiful bokeh, while the ED lenses effectively suppress chromatic aberration.

The lens offers silent, high precision autofocus. For the non-linear setting, focus is shifted with a variable amount according to the rotation speed of the focus ring; while for linear setting focus is shifted with a designated amount according to the rotational quantum of the focus ring. Sensitivity (the amount of focus shift per rotational quantum) can be selected from 90 to 360 degrees. The lens also incorporates a mechanism that suppresses focus breathing, and micro-step aperture control for smooth exposure changes during recording. These features make it suitable for video production as well as still photography.
