A welcome addition to Panasonic’s Lumix S lens lineup, the LUMIX S 70-300mm F4.5-5.6 MACRO O.I.S. Lens is equipped with a versatile focal range, macro capabilities and a strong, power optical image stabilising system. The lens is able to capture and produce stunning images thanks to its complex lens structure that is made up of 17 glass elements in 11 groups, including the use of 2 ED lenses, 1 UED lens and a further UHR lens. The 11-bladed circular aperture diaphragm not only provides greater control of depth-of-field and light coming into the lens but also helps to produce beautifully smooth and pleasing out-of-focus areas, helping you effectively operate your subject from the background.

Expanded Panasonic LUMIX S 70-300mm F4.5-5.6 MACRO O.I.S. Lens Key Features:

Complex Lens Structure

This lens sees an advance and complex lens structure which helps you to utilise a huge focal range and macro shooting capabilities. To achieve this, the lens structure is comprised of 17 glass elements in 11 groups. This includes the use of two Extra-Low dispersion lenses, one Ultra Extra-Low Dispersion element and an Ultra-High Refractive Index element which together have a dramatic effect on the images you take; significantly reducing the appearance of chromatic aberrations and colour fringing, whilst increases clarity, colour accuracy and maintain edge-to-edge sharpness.

Aperture Control and O.I.S

Panasonic has designed an 11-bladed, circular aperture diaphragm which offers an aperture range from F4.5 (Wide) - F5.6 (Tele) to a minimum aperture of F22. This range will help you maintain consistent illumination throughout the zoom range and is particularly useful for macro photography where sharp, well-lit images are vital. In addition, this aperture design provides extensive control of depth-of-field as well as produces pleasing and beautifully smooth out-of-focus areas.

The lens is also equipped with a strong and powerful optical Image Stabiliser. This mechanism minimises the appearance of camera shake and makes for sharper handheld shooting. This is particularly effective when shooting handheld macro photography. Furthermore, this can be supported by in-camera 5-Axis Dual I.S. 2 for increased stabilisation performance.

Out and About

The lens weighs in at 790g, which whilst it isn’t the lightest lens out there, it’s certainly not the heaviest. In fact, this weight is actually complementary to the optical image stabiliser as you can hold the lens with a confident grasp and without tiring, and the lens will make short work of any micro-movements you may make when capturing macro photography.

As well as this, the lens has also been built with a splash- and dust-resistance. It’s not weatherproof but this resistance will most certainly help if you happen to be out on-location photography and then weather takes a turn. Of course, the lens includes a lens hood which will help to reduce any unwanted glare you might experience in strong lighting.

Applicants must be:

  • Aged 18 years or older from the application date
  • In permanent UK residence for a minimum of three years
  • Fulfil at least one of the following employment criteria:
    • In regular, permanent employment.
    • Retired from regular employment - With a minimum age of 50.
    • Not working through disability.
    • Self-employed.

Note: All applicants will be subject to a credit reference check by the lender.

The approval of your application depends on your financial circumstances and borrowing history. Warehouse Express Ltd trading as Wex Photo Video act as credit broker and not the lender. Barclays Partner Finance act as the lender.

Can I repay early? If so how?

No repayments are scheduled in the initial six-month deferral period. However, it is possible to pay off the loan, either by way of a lump sum or in smaller amounts. If the loan is fully repaid within the six-month deferral period, then no interest is payable, but a £29.00 early-settlement will be incurred. Such repayments may be made to Barclays Partner Finance by cheque, debit card or standing order. Unfortunately it is not possible to set up a direct debit within the deferral period. Further information on how to make such repayments will be set out in the loan agreement pack provided by Barclays Partner Finance.

What happens if I don't repay within the first six months (deferral period)?

Following the six month deferral period, Barclays Partner Finance will initiate a monthly direct debit payment for the remaining duration of the loan. Interest will be charged at a rate of 19.9% APR on outstanding balances (backdated to the first date of the loan). Late payment penalties and early repayment charges will apply from this point. Barclays Partner Finance will send a reminder letter approximately one month before the six month deferral period is due to elapse. Note: If you chose to spread the cost and pay monthly, interest is charged from the start of the loan, not from the start of the repayment period.

What will I receive from the finance provider (lender)?

Barclays Partner Finance will send a loan agreement pack approximately four weeks after delivery of the goods, confirming that the account has been activated and, from this point, it is possible to make repayments against the loan. You will also receive reminder letters and text at the end of the deferral period to remind you when your first payment is due.
