UPDATED: The new 35-100mm compact zoom will not have a f/2.8 constant aperture!


Mockup 35-100mm lens without aperture marks (Image courtesy: ePhotozine).


Marc Baber (Panasonic) said in an interview (youtubevideo below at 8.30) that the compact 35-100mm lens that will come later this year has a constant f/2.8 aperture just like the 35-100mm X Panasonic lens.

One of my very trusted sources (Thanks!) said that Marc Baber made a mistake. The lens will not have a constant f/2.8 aperture. Probably Marc was caught in a moment full of stress and made that error. Obviously we understand Marc had a busy time so don’t worry :)
