The Perfect Lens for Portraits This bright large aperture F1.7 lens pulls in a lot of light and produces a beautiful bokeh background defocus effect for more impressive, creative shots. Together with the 42.5mm mid-telephoto focal distance (35mm camera equivalent: 85mm), this lens is ideal for portraits.
Optical Image Stabilizer – LUMIX POWER O.I.S. Large aperture lenses produce a desirable shallow depth of field effect, but even a slight handshake can cause out-of-focus problems. However, the LUMIX POWER O.I.S. (Optical Image Stabilizer) compensates quickly for super clear shots even when shooting in low-lit situations.
Fast Auto Focusing - 240 fps Drive Capability The lens and camera communicate at up to 240 fps* to take maximum advantage of the cameras high-speed AF system. Its inner focus drive system and stepping motor is smooth and silent during both photo and video recording.
*Sensor drive performance varies depending on the camera.

Rated 5 out of 5 by 3 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Fantastic portrait lens that beats the Oly 45mm. Hear me out! My husband and I have the Oly 45mm and while that's great, this one wins because it performs the same if not better, priced very competitively and has POWER OIS! November 28, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great portrait lens Great lens for portraits. Fast f1.7 apeture for great low light and bokeh. Very sharp, fast focus and at a good price. November 17, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Absolutely Great This is absolutely great portrait and low light lens. It is a really great addition to several Panasonic zooms that I own. The lens is great for portraits, gives nice bokeh and wonderful separation of the subject and background. Very nice and fast focusing in difficult lighting conditions. I have been wanting this lens ever since I saw a demo unit at WPPI in Vegas this year. I love it. July 8, 2015
