The Leica DG Vario-Elmarit 50-200mm f/2.8-4 ASPH Power OIS is Next From Panasonic
Panasonic have made their intentions pretty clear with the recently announced DC-G9 and Leica DG Elmarit 200mm f/2.8 POWER O.I.S. lens; they think 4/3 cameras can be powerful tools for outdoor and action photographers. As such it is no real surprise to hear that their next major lens release will be a a super telephoto zoom with huge reach capabilities.
It is no secret that Panasonic and Leica have been developing the Leica DG Vario-Elmarit 50-200mm f/2.8-4 ASPH Power OIS, and thanks to Panasonic themselves (who displayed a lens roadmap at the G9 launch) we now know that this will be the next release from the brand collaboration. It’s lenses like this that make Panasonic’s 4/3 systems so tempting!
