The Panasonic Lumix S 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6 Macro OIS Lens is a lens for serious photographers. It gives the photographer a lot of flexibility that wide and long zooms don't give you. Plus, it is just as sharp as the widest zoom Panasonic makes up to 300mm at f/5.6.

It uses an internal motor to focus which means very fast AF speed along with full time manual focus override if desired. The large zoom ring is smooth and has a nice amount of resistance. It's also much easier to control the focal length with this zoom versus Panasonic's other long zooms due to having a little less range (70-300mm vs 70-400mm).

The focus ring has just the right amount of resistance as well—very easy to make slight adjustments, but not too loose when trying to fine-tune.  

There's an optional LH-87 Lens Hood for this lens which should provide protection from flares when you are shooting towards the sun or other bright light sources.

Product Features in Detail


Versatile 70-300mm Zoom with Outstanding Image Quality
The LUMIX S 70-300mm telephoto zoom lens suits a broad range of shooting opportunities and maximum creative versatility. Its compact and lightweight design features a rugged dust and splash-resistant construction making it ideal for outdoor scenarios such as wildlife and sports photography.

Superb Close-up Performance
With a minimum focusing distance of just 0.74m at 300mm* the lens offers a maximum magnification of 0.5x, enabling you to zoom in on small objects to faithfully capture details, textures and colours in the most intricate subjects.
* Closest focusing distance of 0.54m (at 70mm) / 0.74m (at 300mm).

Beautifully Rendered Bokeh
The newly designed 11-blade circular aperture diaphragm offers impressive rendition of out-of-focus areas at wider apertures, and detailed, eye-catching starbursts when shooting concentrated light sources such as the sun with a narrower aperture setting.

O.I.S for Ultra-Sharp Photos and Super Steady Video
The 70-300mm lens features Dual I.S 2 compatibility, offering optical image stabilisation across 5-axis of movement. Its 5.5-stop compensation* improves image sharpness in photos and reduces camera shake in video for razor sharp, professional quality results.
* Based on the CIPA standard (Yaw/Pitch direction: focusing distance f=300mm, when LUMIX S5 is used).

Dust, Splash and Freeze-resistant Design
Let the rugged construction of the LUMIX S 70-300mm lens inspire you with the confidence to keep shooting. Its dust and splash-resistant construction* complement the weather sealing in our S Series cameras, allowing you to shoot in dusty, wet or cold environments with peace of mind.
* Dust and Splash Resistant does not guarantee that damage will not occur if this lens is subjected to direct contact with dust and water.

Ultra-fast, Video Compatible Autofocus
The lens offers fast, accurate autofocus and smooth aperture changes, equipping the modern content creator with the ability to shoot ultra-sharp photos and cinematic quality video, even in varying lighting conditions.

Optimised Lens Construction
The S-R70300 Lens construction delivers true-to-life detail, despite its compact size. The 70-300mm lens features 17 elements in 11 groups including 2 ED, 1 UED and 1 UHR lens elements to minimise aberrations and deliver maximum detail with faithful colour reproduction.

S-R70300 MTF Chart
Offering outstanding sharpness and resolution throughout the entire zoom range, the 70-300mm is ideal for the LUMIX full-frame system. It delivers maximum creative versatility in a compact, lightweight, rugged design without compromising on image quality.
