Panasonic Lumix S 50mm F1.8 (S-S50) lens introduced



Panasonic has introduced the Lumix S 50mm F1.8 (S-S50) fast standard L-Mount lens. It is the fourth f / 1.8 maximum aperture in the Lumix S series. They all share the same size and control layout, making it easy to swap lenses on a cinematographer camera with only minimal gear adjustments. It is also convenient that all these lenses are designed for filters of the same diameter.

Another advantage related to the use of the Lumix S 50mm F1.8 (S-S50) for video shooting is the focusing mechanism that excludes “focus breathing”, that is, the change in the focal length of the lens depending on the distance at which it focuses. Finally, microstepping aperture control lets you smoothly change exposure to create professional-quality videos.

Panasonic Lumix S 50mm F1.8 (S-S50) lens specifications:

  • focal length – 50 mm;
  • aperture – f / 1.8 – f / 22;
  • lens optical design – 9 elements in 8 groups, including 3 aspherical elements, a UHR element and an ED element;
  • the number of aperture blades – 9;
  • the minimum focusing distance is 0.45 m;
  • maximum magnification – 0.14x;
  • installation diameter of filters – 67 mm;
  • diameter – 74 mm;
  • length – 82 mm;
  • weight – 300 g.

The lens is dust and splash resistant. A lens hood is included in the package. Sales are due to start in July for $ 450.

In addition, the company announced that L-Mount lenses with a maximum aperture of f / 1.8 and focal lengths of 24mm and 35mm are under development.
