Look for the X
Here's why X has become an important symbol for you. Panasonic uses X to denote a premium group of lenses for the Micro Four Thirds family of hybrid cameras. They're every bit as video-savvy as they are picture-friendly. This standard-to-telephoto power zoom lens is a perfect example — electronic zoom assistance doesn't always seem absolutely necessary when you're shooting stills, but it suddenly becomes a "must-have" when taking video of the touch football game. All your zooms will be machine-smooth and rock-stable, thanks to the ultra-quiet, responsive motors and the sophisticated image stabilization inside the unit. This lens is also a great choice for everything from sensitive family portraiture to great action close-ups of your favorite drummer marching in the band's halftime show.

The X Series lenses feature precision optics that raise the bar for the hybrid camera category as well. Aspheric elements and extra-low dispersion glass deliver images that are high-contrast, free of blurs and dimmed edges, and shots that are crisp and devoid of color fringing. The fact that they've put all this reach, grace, and style into a small, light package is just icing on the cake.
