The Panasonic Lumix 42.5mm F1.7 is a compact and lightweight prime lens for micro four thirds mirrorless bodies. The 85mm equivalent focal length is a classic for portraiture work, due to its flattering perspective and its ability to throw backgrounds entirely out of focus. With the Panasonic 42.5mm this is enhanced by the f1.7 maximum aperture, which also allows you the freedom to shoot in a variety of lighting conditions.</ p>

  • 35mm Equivalent focal length: 85mm
  • Fast f1.7 aperture – Shoot in low light conditions
  • Power O.I.S – Puts an end to camera shake
  • One aspherical element – Reduces chromatic aberrations
  • Rounded 7-Blade diaphragm – Produces more pleasing out of focus areas
  • Stepping AF motor – fast & quiet

A Prime, Portrait-ready lens from Panasonic

This Panasonic 42.5mm f1.7 prime lens is a much sought-after piece of kit for any Micro Four Thirds user with an interest in portraiture. The long equivalent focal length of 85mm is successful at capturing a flattering perspective of models, as well as buying some distance for you as the photographer, so you can shoot away without causing a distraction. This focal length also works in conjunction with the fast f1.7 maximum aperture to create breathtaking images with a keen sense of selective focus. You as the photographer can decide what is in focus and what is blurred-out and the lens happily complies.

As well as a fast maximum aperture, the 42.5mm f1.7 lens from Panasonic features Power O.I.S. which all but eliminates the appearance of camera shake within your images. This enables you to take your lens out in the field in less than perfect lighting conditions, or stop down the lens so more objects in focus and the lens will stabilise things to enable you to shoot at the necessary slower shutter speeds.

Other Key Features

  • Rounded 7-blade aperture diaphragm - the blurry backgrounds which are so easy to create are smooth and beautiful in appearance
  • Stepping AF motor - suitable for videos and stills, autofocus performance of the 42.5mm f1.7 lens is accurate, as well as being smooth, quick and quiet
  • Rugged all-metal lens barrel and bayonet mount
