Panasonic has announced two new Micro Four Thirds lenses – the Lumix G 30mm Macro and 42.5mm portrait lens. 

Elegantly designed with a sharp, metallic black finish, the new 30mm macro lens perfectly matches the style of the latest LUMIX G interchangeable lens cameras. With a 30mm (35mm camera equivalent: 60 mm) wide angle and a high speed f/2.8 aperture, the lens provides sharp, high contrast image rendering. Utilising 1x life-size magnification, deep depth of field, and a focusing distance starting at just 0.105 m, the lens offers excellent performance even when shooting true-to-life macro shots.

A durable and reliable metal mount means the lens is perfectly suited for day-to-day use, while the multi-coated lens elements minimise ghosting and flaring to further enhance shooting performance. With a 240 fps Drive Auto Focus (AF) and MEGA O.I.S. (Optical Image Stabilizer), you can achieve fast, accurate focusing and stable framing with every shot.  

The 30mm macro will be available in black from May 2015. 

The new 42.5mm lens is available in sharp metallic black and silver, and delivers beautiful defocus to help you add more artistry and creativity into your photography. Offering a 42.5mm middle-telephoto focal distance (35mm camera equivalent: 85mm equivalent to 85mm on a 35mm camera), a high speed f/1.7 aperture, and a versatile focusing distance of 0.31 m, the lens can deliver portraits with a rich stereoscopic effect as well as close-ups with beautiful defocus.

The lens’ POWER O.I.S. system effectively compensates unwanted blur caused by handshake – not only small, fast movements but also large, slow ones – helping you get the results you want, even in low light situations. The POWER O.I.S system, alongside the 240fps Drive AF, delivers stable framing and precise focusing every time.

The 42.5mm portrait lens is available in black and silver from May 2015.
