(UPDATED) Amazon Germany still shows the image of the 14-140mm prototype.


Image of the prototype Panasonic 14-140mm lens.

 UPDATE: False alarm. The image you see is not the new verison of the 14-140mm lens but actually an old prototype pic where the lens was a tiny bit faster and the filter size 58mm instead of 62mm. Image found at Amazon Germany (Click here).

    Panny isn’t getting it. We’ve got plenty of slow aperture lenses around this focal length. If Lumix is going to break into pro territory – and I for one would love to have some fast glass for travel shooting – they have to start offering f2.8 or faster lenses.

      Mr. Pro there are two constant 2.8 lenses from Panasonic ;)

        someone’s not keeping up with the lenses, lol

        Mr Bonzo, where can I buy a Panny long zoom faster than f5.6 at the long end? But there are three starting at 45mm and going out to 150mm, 175mm, 200mm @f5.6. Isn’t that enough in that range now? Or would you like a 45-180 f4.0/5.6 too?

        The 35-100 isn’t a long.

    • If you are waiting for a zoom faster then 2.8, you better consider primes intead; one pancake 14mm for all purpose setup, and a longer FL for the “zoom in” subjects. I realise zooms are more convenient as an all in one solution. I do hate changing lenses, but i hate “slow” apertures even more..

    The link points to the old zoom (maybe this is due to the fact that I am web surfing in Germany?!). I do not see any new zoom there.

    This is just the prototype lens of the 14-140

      Wow… You have the point there – that “new” 14-140 lens was from 2009 ;-)

    • NtT

      I see admin updated the description as well… B-)

    ‘the new version of the 14-140mm lens’ Is there a new version coming? A lighter and less bulky 14-140mm is what I am waiting for as a walk around lens.

  • Pretty! This has been an incredibly wonderful post.

    Many thanks for providing this info.
