A year ago, Panasonic announced a series of five budget lenses (with a gray “S” in the label). To date, only three of them have been presented. But now, apparently, the turn has come to the next one – according to the Photorumors resource, they will soon present the Panasonic LUMIX S 24mm f / 1.8 for L-mount, the main characteristics of this lens are also published there:
Panasonic LUMIX S 24mm f / 1.8
- Optical construction: 12 elements in 11 groups (3 aspherical lenses, 1 UED, 3 ED)
- Minimum distance: 0.24 m
- Maximum shooting magnification: 0.15x
- Filter diameter. 67mm
- Dimensions: Ø73.6 x 82.0 mm
- Weight: 310 g.
The novelty can become a fairly budgetary option for wide-angle optics for users of Panasonic full-frame cameras, who are faced with the problem of the rather high cost of the optics fleet of this system.
