Ultimate zoom to capture far-away scenes

Get up 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. Protective 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 moments as they happen.


Take your shots to the next level

The Panasonic Lumix Leica Vario-Elmar lens frames images tightly with a focal distance of 1.3 metres. Get up close to your subject with 0.5x magnification. Delivering a powerful 240fps, you’ll achieve fast yet silent accuracy in both stills and video recording. The expansive 200-800mm focal length range will enable you to capture those far-away moments every time.

Create soft, creamy bokeh

You’ll be able to achieve perfect bokeh using a shallow depth of field, made possible with a rounded nine-blade aperture. Your images will have next level professionalism with unrivalled clarity. Produce sharper images with more depth and clarity with this lens' quality optical design. Unwelcome aberrations and colour fringing will be eliminated to give you clear imagery and improved colour accuracy.

Steady hands

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 create beautiful 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, once it’s too late.

Take smooth video reels

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 varied weather conditions.

Lightweight and compact

Lightweight and compact, this lens is ideal for handheld operation without the need for a tripod to steady the camera and lens. If you prefer to shoot with a tripod for ease of use, the removable rotating tripod collar easily attaches and makes it 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 unwanted light isn’t entering the lens on 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 and achieve deep blue skies in outdoor shots.

How can I best clean fingerprints off my lens?

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