This Panasonic Macro lens with a built-in image stabiliser is perfect for hand-held close-up images of bugs, flowers and other smaller objects. Designed for use with Micro Four Thirds cameras like the Panasonic G range, the Panasonic 45mm f2.8 Macro is also more than capable for portraits and other everyday usage, due to its versatile medium telephoto focal length. Closest focus is an excellent 15cm , while a 1:1 ratio means the lens is capable of “true macro”, where an object can be photographed life sized.

  • 1:1 Magnification Ratio
  • 1 Aspherical and 1 ED lens element
  • 35mm equivalent focal length: 90mm
  • Built in Optical Image Stabiliser
  • Closest Focus: 0.15m

A medium-telephoto Macro lens for Micro Four Thirds
With an equivalent focal length of 90mm, this Panasonic 45mm f2.8 Macro lens is flexible in usage, obviously well-equipped to handle the capture of close-up objects, but also just as usable as a medium-telephoto prime lens, excellent for tightly-cropped portraits.

From a Macro perspective, this Micro Four Thirds compatible lens is a solid performer, capable of “True Macro”, thanks to a 1:1 magnification ratio, and able to focus as close as 15 cm.

Built in O.I.S for sharp photos in-close

In a very thoughtful move, Panasonic have included a built-in Optical Image Stabiliser in this Macro lens. This inclusion opens up a whole new level of flexibility to shooters, providing them with a lens that is well-equipped to virtually eliminate camera-shake. This is extremely handy when shooting in lower-light conditions that call for slower shutter speeds and also for taking close-up, hand-held images where even the slightest movement can be critical. This built-in stabiliser will ensure that blur will not ruin your photographs, whether they are macro shots of a bug on a leaf, or a portrait at sunset.

Confidence to shoot hand-held and wide open

When shooting wide open with the Panasonic 45mm f2.8 lens, the bright aperture rating will let in plenty of light to allow you to shoot at a faster shutter speed, and it will also cause less of your image to be in focus. This achieves a shallow depth of field, or a selective focus look. You have seen this style in portraits and macro shots by professional photographers and now you are well-equipped to attempt it yourself.
Adding to the list of advantages of this lens is the 7-blade circular aperture diaphragm, which has been put in place to ensure all of these out-of-focus areas are of the most beautiful appearance possible.
