Lens Description: For getting up-close and personal with your Micro Four Thirds Panasonic camera, you can't do better than this Lumix G Vario 100-300mm F/4.0-5.6 OIS Lens. A 35mm equivalent 200-600mm range makes sports action, wildlife, and any other kind of photography where you can't get too close to your subject, a breeze. Its compact design, contrast AF system support, and MEGA O.I.S. image stabilization to prevent blurry photos from shaky hands (very common with long telephoto lenses) all make this a must-have if you want to take pictures from afar. The multi-coating and ED glass used in the lens minimize ghosting or flare from any stray light.
