Get up and close to your subjects with excellent zoom range. Whether it’s wildlife or sports scenes, you’ll have extraordinary versatility to capture action at a distance. Protectant against the elements, the gapless construction will stop moisture damage and dust build-up. The 240fps focus motor offers fast and precise yet quiet focus to capture the right moment as it happens.

240fps focus motor, 4.3’ focal distance, 200-800mm focal length and 0.5x magnification

The Panasonic Lumix Leica Vario-Elmar lens frames images tightly with focal distance of 4.3 feet. Get right up and close to your subject with 0.5x magnification, even if you’re far away. That helps when you’re snapping easily frivolous animals or flighty birds. Delivering a powerful 240fps, you’ll achieve fast yet silent precision for both stills and video recording. The expansive 200-800mm focal length range will enable you to capture those far-away moments.

Rounded nine-blade diaphragm

Produce perfect bokeh using selective focus and shallow depth of field techniques made possible with the rounded nine-blade body. Subjects come forward and backdrops melt with clear definition and popping colour. Your images will have a next level professionalism with unrivalled clarity. Produce sharper images with more depth and clarity with this len’s quality optical design. Only achieved with a lens like this, unwelcomed aberrations and colour fringing will be eliminated to give you clear imagery and improved colour accuracy.

POWER O.I.S image stabiliser

Even with shaky hands, you’ll be able to keep your shots still with the Lumix Leica Vario-Elmar built-in stabilisers. The POWER O.I.S. system minimises camera shake so you can make handheld shots at longer focal lengths without a tripod. Getting those precious shots will be possible without the unwanted blur that you might only discover later on when it’s too late.

4K video supported

This lens supports video filming entirely. Its AF capability films 4K video with complete accuracy. It has smooth aperture changes to stop unwanted jumps in exposure, and does not have any distractions against other audio with its silent design.

Gapless construction

Moisture and dust resistant with gapless construction, you can take this lens out on adventures in just about any setting without worrying about damage. Whether it’s humidity in a jungle, splash from a waterfall or just the spring air causing dust, your lens will be resistant to any conditions.

Lightweight and compact for handheld operation

Lightweight and compact, this lens is ideal for handheld operation without the need of a tripod to hold the camera and lens in place. Although, you can attach it to a tripod or monopod to keep it steady and for ease of use. The removable rotating tripod collar easily attaches and is easy to switch between horizontal and vertical shooting orientations.

Lens hood guard

The lens hood can be retracted and hidden away when you’re not using the lens. Or, use the hood to guard against harsh light to prevent flaring and ghosting. You can achieve richer colours and deeper saturation when light isn’t hitting in from the sides.

Do I need to use a tripod or monopod with this lens?

The Panasonic Lumix Leica Vario-Elmar 100-400mm F/4-6.3 Lens can be handheld at 400mm due to the O.I.S. but a monopod would be ideal.

What type of filters could I use with this lens?

A clear filter protects the front element of the lens from damage including weather sealing so you won’t be forking out costly repair bills. A polarising filter is an excellent addition to any lens to cut unwanted glare and reflection from your images.

How can I best clean off fingerprints from my lens?

Fingerprints on the lens is bad news. Try an oil remover to easily clean off prints from sticky fingers.
