Panasonic Lens Roadmap for 2016-2017

Panasonic Lens Roadmap for 2016-2017

Panasonic unveiled their lens release plan for the remainder of 2016 and on into 2017, by showing prototypes of three new micro four thirds lenses:

  • Leica DG 12-60mm f/2.8-4.0 standard zoom lens (expected 2016)
  • Leica DG 8-18mm f/2.8-4.0 wide zoom lens (expected 2017)
  • Leica DG 50-200mm f/2.8-4.0 telephoto zoom lens (expected 2017)

The timeline is pretty loose at the moment, but we will work to uncover some more exact information in the coming months!

More photos are available on this Polish website.

Currently the wide-zoom option from Panasonic is a 7-14mm f/4, whilst it would have been nice to see a constant f/2.8 aperture, I’m sure some Panasonic shooters will be pleased to at least get f/2.8 on the wide end of this upcoming 8-18mm. Should be a good choice for astrophotography!

The other lens that catches my attention is the 50-200mm.  This has a much faster aperture than the current 45-200 or the 100-300mm. Overall, it’s nice to see some faster lenses available for Panasonic fans!
