Expanded Panasonic LUMIX S 18mm f1.8 Lens Key Features:

Seamless Integration

As the latest addition to Panasonic’s line of f1.8 fixed focal length lenses, this 18mm lens has been designed in line with its 85mm (S-S85), 50mm (S-S50), 35mm (S-S35) and 24mm (S-S24) counterparts. Not only does this lens benefit from the same uniformed size, but it also maintains the same position for the controls to provide a near identical centre of gravity. This is perfect for those needing quicker lens changes when their camera is mounted to a gimbal. As a result, Panasonic’s 18mm seamlessly integrates into the LUMIX S series to create a comprehensive set of lenses ready to tackle every shooting scenario.

Premium Optical Performance

Whilst this 18mm lens offers an extremely wide angle of view suitable for landscape, astro and architectural photography, its 18cm minimum focusing distance also lends itself well to close-range shots. This provides users with a unique sense of scale for some really creative portraiture. Combined with a wide, bright and fast f1.8 maximum aperture and a state-of-the-art build featuring 3 aspherical, 3 ED (Extra-Low Dispersion), 1 UED (Ultra Extra-Low Dispersion) and 1 UHR (Ultra High Refractive Index) elements, this Panasonic lens eradicates aberrations with ease for incredibly high-resolution results.

Optimised for Video

Thanks to Panasonic’s high-speed linear motor, this 18mm lens has impressive autofocusing capabilities that work smoothly and silently, reading the sensor at a maximum of 240 frames per second. This is perfect for tracking fast-moving subjects with precision whether you’re shooting wildlife, pets or even sport.

Further reinforcing this lens as the perfect option for video is its ability to suppress focus breathing. This impressive mechanism achieves beautifully smooth videos that shift focus without changing the angle of view. Together with micro-step iris control for smooth exposure changes, this is an incredibly flexible lens that is fully optimised for hybrid shooters.

FAQs:

Can I attach filters to this lens?

Yes. The Panasonic LUMIX S 18mm f1.8 Lens lens has a 67mm filter thread for attaching all kinds of optional filters, polarisers and other accessories.

How much does this lens weigh?

The Panasonic LUMIX S 18mm f1.8 Lens lens boasts an impressively compact and lightweight design for easy storage and improved portability. This lens measures approximately 82mm in length and weighs only 340g.

Can I use this lens outdoors?

Yes. In line with the LUMIX S series of lenses, this 18mm lens benefits from the same Splash, dust and freeze-resistant construction. This allows photographers and videographers to take this lens out on location without fear of overt wear and tear. However, please note that dust and splash resistance does not guarantee that damage will not occur if this lens is subjected to direct contact with dust and water.

How does the manual focusing function work?

Manual focusing is controlled using the focus ring. For non-linear adjustments, the focus is shifted by a variable amount according to the speed of rotation. Linear adjustment, on the other hand, shifts the focus by a specific amount according to the angle of rotation. The degree of focus shift in relation to the angle of rotation can be selected from 90 to 360 degrees in 30-degree increments.

During the six-month deferral period, it is possible to pay off the loan, either by way of a lump sum or in smaller amounts. If the loan is partially repaid within six months, the remaining interest will be adjusted to reflect the new balance. If the loan is fully repaid within the six-month deferral period, then no interest is payable, however, a £29 early settlement fee is payable in respect of repayments within these six months.

Following the six-month deferral period, Novuna Personal Finance will initiate a monthly direct debit payment for the remaining duration of the loan. Interest will be charged at a rate of 18.9% APR on outstanding balances (backdated to the first date of the loan). Novuna Personal Finance will send a reminder letter approximately one month before the six-month deferral period is due to elapse.
