(From Panasonic lens literature)

Panasonic is proud to introduce three new interchangeable lenses based on the L-Mount system for the LUMIX S Series Full-frame Digital Single Lens Mirrorless Camera. Specially focusing on professional use, the LUMIX S Series pursues uncompromising photographic expression with its high-quality cameras and lenses.

  1. LUMIX S PRO 50mm F1.4 (S-X50)
    A large-aperture fixed focal length lens that forms the core of the LUMIX S Series of lenses

  2. LUMIX S PRO 70-200mm F4 O.I.S. (S-R70200)
    A telephoto zoom lens that features high resolution with stunning clarity across the entire zoom range

  3. LUMIX S 24-105mm F4 MACRO O.I.S. (S-R24105)
    A versatile standard zoom lens with macro shot capability covering wide-angle to medium telephoto

The L-Mount is a lens mount for mirrorless cameras that was launched by Leica and is equally suitable for both the APS-C format and full-frame cameras. Leica Camera, Panasonic and Sigma are set to offer a user-friendly solution that will allow photographers to 'mix and match' any of the three manufacturers' APS-C and full-frame cameras with any lens from each other's product portfolios. The aim of the L-Mount Alliance is to provide customers with a diverse and future-proof range of products. The advantages are a large inner diameter of 51.6 mm that enables the realization of extremely fast lenses and extremely compact dimensions. The configuration of the lens-to-camera communication interface is future-proof and the L-Mount also offers an option for the construction of sealed systems that are insensitive to dust and moisture. The L-Mount thereby opens up an almost limitless spectrum of new creative possibilities.

All interchangeable lenses of the LUMIX S Series provide high performance yet the "LUMIX S PRO" lenses further boast ultimate optical performance to be certified by LEICA for clearing stringent LEICA standards. Panasonic is committed to designing and developing 10 or more lenses with a focus on "LUMIX S PRO" lenses by 2020 and further expanding the S Series lens lineup.

Comprising 13 lenses in 11 groups, the use of 2 aspherical lenses and 3 ED (Extra-low Dispersion) lenses effectively suppresses both axial chromatic aberration and chromatic aberration of magnification. Astigmatism is also corrected with those aspherical lenses, achieving high resolving performance.

A double focus system combining a linear motor and stepping motor achieves sensor drive at a maximum speed of 480 fps. It realizes fast, high-precision AF to ensure that you will never miss a photo opportunity. Adoption of a focus clutch mechanism enables instant AF/MF switching and accurate manual focusing. The LUMIX S PRO 50mm F1.4 also excels in video recording performance with a mechanism that suppresses focus breathing, which was a fatal problem of all interchangeable lenses designed for still image photography.
