Pana­sonic Un­veils LU­MIX G 25mm f/1.7 ASPH Lens

HWM (Malaysia) - - APERTURE - NEWS -

Pana­sonic re­cently made a sur­pris­ing un­veil­ing of a brand new 25mm f/1.7mm lens, along with a new matte black fin­ish for three ex­ist­ing G lenses: the 14-140mm f/3.5-5.6, the 45-150mm f/4-5.6, and 14-42mm f/3.5-5.6.

The new LU­MIX G 25mm f/1.7 ASPH is a prime lens de­signed to en­hanced low-light shoot­ing and depth of field con­trol. Of­fer­ing a longer fo­cal length than the pricier 20mm f/1.7 II pan­cake lens, this new lens gives users a clas­sic 50mm equiv­a­lent fo­cal length lens with a very wide, bright aper­ture. It is con­structed from 8 el­e­ments in 7 lens groups, and touts a rounded 7-blade di­aphragm for smooth bokeh. It also uti­lizes a sin­gle UHR el­e­ment, paired with two as­pher­i­cal el­e­ments to re­duce chro­matic aber­ra­tions and dis­tor­tion.

There’s no word on the of­fi­cial re­lease date of the new LU­MIX G 25mm f/1.7 ASPH lens yet, but it is ex­pected to cost around US$298 (ap­prox. RM1,291).
