Overview: The Panasonic H-PS14042 is a Lumix G Vario PZ
14-42 mm F3.5-5.6 ASPH Power O.I.S. standard zoom lens for Panasonic Lumix G-series cameras.
The 35mm equivalent focal length is 28-84mm. It has a Micro Four Thirds
mount, and comes with a vinyl lens pouch. This lens has a silver finish, and is also available inblack.
Power O.I.S.: The lens features Power O.I.S. (Optical Image
Stabilizer), a system which makes it easy to shoot blur-free shots, even in low
light situations, such as nighttime or indoors. Power O.I.S. has improved
sensitivity of the gyro sensor, compared to Mega O.I.S., and can correct large,
slow movement more effectively.
Power Zoom: The H-PS14042 is a compact standard zoom lens, only
1-1/4" long. When the camera is powered off, the lens is retracted. The lens has
an electric-power zoom operation, controlled by a lever on the lens barrel. In
addition, the manual zoom operation is controlled by a similar lever, instead of
a zoom ring.
Light Speed AF: When used on compatible Panasonic Lumix G
cameras, the lens supports the Light Speed AutoFocus, which is achieved in
approximately 0.1 second (measured with the DMC-GF3). In addition, the aperture
control is faster, making shutter time lag shorter by approximately 40%,
compared with the H-FS014042 14-42mm Mega O.I.S. lens.
