MEGA OIS - Leave your tripod at home
Traditionally a common issue with long-range zoom lenses has been blurry images caused by even the slightest amount of camera shake. Many photographers were forced to sacrifice their mobility and carry a tripod a monopod, if they wanted to utilise the long reach of a telephoto zoom lens. Thanks to the built-in MEGA Optical Image Stabiliser, the 100-300mm from Panasonic does not suffer the same fate. You can be free to keep your kit lightweight and leave your tripod at home when using this lens, as you are sure to capture sharp images time and time again. This stabiliser makes up for quite a few stops, meaning you can shoot at slower shutter speeds than ever before with increased confidence.
A fast and quiet contrast AF system for Sports and Movies
Another reason to consider this lens as a viable option for all of your action photography purposes, is the fast and quiet contrast AF system. This inner focus drive system is able to focus accurately on still or moving subjects, under any lighting condition. Focus noises are very minimal, meaning you will not be able to hear your lens at work when you watch your cinematography experiments back on your computer screen or TV.
