The X Vario 14-42mm lens has high performance specifications like autofocus during movie recording, nano surface coating that drastically reduces ghosting and flare, and Power O.I.S. (Optical Image Stabilization) for greatly improved image sharpness and blur reduction. Two ED lens elements compensate for chromatic aberration, and the silent design makes this an ideal lens for shooting video. For those new to interchangeable lens cameras, using the zoom at the push of a button will be familiar to them from their compact camera; while more advanced users will appreciate the smooth zooming when shooting video.
This new lens offers a versatile zoom range of 14-42 mm (35 mm camera equivalent: 28-84 mm) suitable for a wide range of scenes from dynamic landscapes to portraits. Comprised of ninelenses in eight groups, the lens system features excellent contrast across the entire zoom range. The inclusion of fourasphericallenses also improves optical performance by minimising distortion, even at the 28 mm wide end. The two ED lenses effectively compensate for chromatic aberration.
