Panasonic released a new large-aperture prime lens LUMIX S 35mm F1.8

Today Panasonic released a new large-aperture prime lens LUMIX S 35mm F1.8, the fourth member of the L-mount F1.8 large-aperture lens, priced at $781 USD. According to reports, the LUMIX S 35mm F1.8 lens consists of 11 elements in 9 groups, including 3 aspheric lenses and 3 ED (low dispersion) lenses. The aspheric lens can achieve high image quality, and the ED lens can effectively suppress chromatic aberration, suitable for a variety of scenes, including portraits, landscapes, and snapshots. Since the closest focusing distance is 0.24m, it can also be used for close-up shooting.

According to the official, LUMIX S 35mm F1.8 can run smoothly at a lens drive speed of up to 240 fps, quiet and noiseless, and is used in conjunction with a high-speed and high-precision autofocus system. For non-linear settings, the focus can be shifted by a variable amount according to the rotation speed of the focus ring. For the linear setting, the focus can be shifted by a specified amount according to the amount of rotation of the focus ring. Sensitivity (focus offset per rotation unit) can be selected from 90 degrees to 360 degrees, every 30 degrees, to achieve the desired focus operation. LUMIX S 35mm F1.8 performs well in video recording and can effectively inhibit the breathing effect. With the micro-step aperture control, high-quality video can be recorded.

The LUMIX S series currently has a total of 4 F1.8 fixed-focus lenses, including 85mm (S-S85), 50mm (S-S50), 24mm (S-S24) and 35mm (S-S35) lenses. The size and position of the 4 lens control components are the same for easy manipulation. The center of gravity of the 4 lenses is almost the same, and the stabilizer can realize quick lens change and leveling.
