Panasonic is proud to introduce three interchangeable lenses for the LUMIX S Series full-frame mirrorless cameras; 50mm F1.4, 24-105mm F4 and 70-200mm F4. Based on the Leica L-Mount and specially focusing on professional use, the LUMIX S Series pursues uncompromising standards in its cameras and lenses. While all interchangeable lenses of the LUMIX S Series provide high performance, those marked “LUMIX S PRO” push the boundaries of optical performance further for approval against Leica’s stringent standards. Panasonic is committed to designing and developing ten or more lenses, with a focus on “LUMIX S PRO” models, by 2020 and further expanding the S Series lens lineup.

All three S lenses have a rugged dust/splash-resistant design to withstand use under harsh conditions even in 10 degrees below zero to match the professional level of the S1 and S1R cameras. The focus element of the lenses is moved by motors with a sophisticated design, supporting the high frequency of the S-System sporting up to 480 frames per second. For ultimate control, the lenses have a focus clutch mechanism allowing instant switching from autofocus to manual adjustment at any time. The LUMIX S-lenses also excel when used for video as they are designed to suppress focus breathing during recording.

At the core of the LUMIX S lens series is the new LUMIX S PRO 50mm F1.4. A large-aperture lens with a focal length considered ‘standard’ for the full frame format, the LUMIX S PRO 50mm F1.4 boasts stunningly high resolution and incredible sharpness from centre to corner even when used wide open. The optical design and the use of an 11-bladed iris provide beautifully smooth focus transition and exceptionally attractive bokeh. Comprising 13 elements in 11 groups, 2 aspherical lenses and 3 extra-low dispersion lenses are used to avoid chromatic aberrations and to ensure outstanding resolution centre to corner.

*Dust and Splash Resistant does not guarantee that damage will not occur if this lens is subjected to direct contact with dust and water.

L-Mount:

The L-Mount was developed by Leica Camera to provide customers with a future-proof, flexible, robust and precise bayonet that will meet even the most demanding photographic requirements. After its initial launch in 2014 in the Leica T, the L-Mount has been continuously developed by Leica Camera and its partners, resulting in improved and quasi-new L-Mount technology.

For the widest possible variety of products, the diameter of the L-mount was put at a new dimenison of 51.6 millimeters, making it suitable not only for full-frame cameras but also for APS-C sensors. The small footprint of only 20 millimeters allows for a small distance between optics and sensor, making lenses much more compact - particularly useful for wide angle development. To withstand even the heaviest loads and to guarantee maximum safety for customers over many years of intensive use, camera bayonets become wear resistant Stainless steel and with four flange segments, which prevents tilting and ensures a particularly firm and flat fit of the lens. The standardised L-Mount contact strip ensures smooth communication between the electronic components in the lens and the camera, including the possibility of firmware updates for lenses, in order to react to technical developments and thus ensure full performance in the future. Currently, the Leica SL system in full format and the APS system with camera models Leica CL, TL2 and TLde use the lens mount. All the optics of the different systems can be operated without restrictions and without adapters on all cameras – here is already one of the many advantages that customers have through the unified bayonet. 

Designed to incorporate an entire array of Panasonic technology refined over a century in the consumer electronics business and ten years developing Mirrorless cameras, the new S1 model will retain essential user-friendliness and robustness as tools for photography or videography by professionals.
