Next up, Panasonic’s 50mm f1.8 S Lens. This impressively compact and lightweight lens weighs just 300g and its advanced optical structure makes this a truly versatile lens for all-day use. Exceptional image quality is ensured with its optical makeup that comprises 9 premium glass elements arranged into 8 groups, of which includes 3 aspherical lenses, 1 ED lens and 1 UHR lens. Together, these high-quality lenses offer significantly suppressed chromatic and spherical aberration as well as increased sharpness, contrast and colour accuracy. The lens features a wide, bright and fast maximum aperture of f1.8 that offers enhanced low-light performance as well as expressive control over depth of field. Finally, this lens is well suited to stills photography but also excels with video recording with suppressed focus breathing and micro-step aperture control for smoother exposure changes. This is an all-rounder lens that offers professional quality in any scenario.

Expanded Panasonic 50mm f1.8 S Lens Key Features:

Optical Structure

Packed into this compact lens is an advanced and intricate optical structure that’s made up of nine premium glass elements that are arranged into eight groups. Within these nine elements, three aspherical lenses reduce spherical aberrations and increase clarity, one ED (Extra-Low Dispersion) lens that significantly suppresses chromatic aberrations and one UHR (Ultra-High Refractive Index) lens that increases overall optical performance. The quality of these elements can be realised when used with compatible Panasonic S cameras, such as the Panasonic Lumix S5 Digital Camera.


As a 50mm prime lens, this lens offers an impressive level of image quality and sharpness that is higher than that of a zoom lens with a similar focal range. The 50mm focal range is often used by photographers to capture dramatic portraiture and with this lens’s wide, bright and fast maximum f1.8, you’re afforded truly expressive control of depth of field for selective focus techniques. As well as this, the maximum aperture offers impressive low-light performance and the use of slow shutter speeds whilst maintaining image quality. As much as this lens excels for portraiture, it is a versatile lens that offers exceptional results for a range of other photographic disciplines such as street, landscape and travel photography. What’s more, this lens excels with video work. It features an advanced mechanism that suppresses focus breathing and micro-step aperture control for smoother exposure changes.

      Is this lens weatherproof?

      This lens features effective dust- and splash-proofing that also can withstand harsh conditions, even down to -10°.

      What is the closest the lens can focus?

      This lens has a close focus of just 45cm, meaning that you can experiment with close-up perspective shooting.

      Does this lens have any image stabilisation?

      The lens itself does not have an optical image stabiliser. However, when paired with the likes of Panasonic’s S1H professional mirrorless camera, you’ll be able to capture smooth, shake-free footage.
