The Panasonic FZ2500 boasts exceptionally high videographic performance that meets professional needs has been added to a powerful zoom and 1-inch sensor in a camera truly designed for creators.
The new F2.8-4.5 24-480mm LEICA DC VARIO-ELMARIT lens boasts high optical performance for both photos and videos.
This lens system features an inner zoom structure with guide-pole mechanism for smooth, stable zooming, and dramatically suppresses image shift by 80% compared with the predecessor FZ1000. A coreless DC motor also enables slow constantly zooming from wide to 20x tele-end.
A galvanometer drive iris, which is used in professional video cameras, smoothly catches up with sudden changes in brightness. This assures smooth, seamless iris control even when zooming.
The new LEICA DC VARIO-ELMARIT lens has an F2.8-4.5 brightness that resists blurring even for telephoto shots, and an angle of view that extends from 24mm wide-angle to 20x optical zoom* while maintaining the body size.
The lens unit consists of 16 elements in 11 groups, including 4 ED lenses, 5 aspherical lenses with 8 aspherical surfaces, and a UHR lens. This lens meets Leica’s stringent standards in the MTF value and in the suppression of ghosts and flaring.
Panasonic’s unique aspherical lens mold technology achieves a beautiful, evenly smooth defocus with an invisible edge line.
