Panasonic extends their reach with the new 50-200mm high-end variable aperture zoom for the Micro Four Thirds System. Top tier build quality and compact size in a weather resistant design create the perfect sports/wildlife zoom.
This new lens fills out the Panasonic Leica high-end variable aperture zoom line along with the 8-18mm and 12-60mm. These three lenses combined enable the complete equivalent range of 16-400mm to be covered all in a very manageable kit size.
The overall size and weight of a Panasonic Micro Four Thirds kit utilising all 3 of these lenses would be substantially less than competing DSLR systems — while still providing the incredible quality and performance that used to be exclusive to the larger formats.
