Panasonic LUMIX G X Vario PZ 14-42mm

Constructed with 9 elements in 8 groups, with 4 aspherical and 2 ED lenses, the Micro-4/3rds mount LUMIX G 14-42mm lens (28-84mm 35mm equivalent) is a power zoom, making it ideal for both still and especially video recording. The on-board electric zoom lever is complemented by a manual focusing lever. An enhanced built-in Power O.I.S. optical image stabilization feature aids in quality recording, and Nano Surface Coating technology results in a dramatic reduction of ghosting and flare. Close focusing capabilities are a mere 0.2 metres (0.66 ft.) at the wider settings and just slightly more at the telephoto end.
