The Panasonic LUMIX G X VARIO 35-100 (H-HS35100) represents a next step in digital interchangeable telephoto zoom lens design for LUMIX G Series cameras. Its constant F2.8 zoom is suitable for professionals and enthusiasts capturing a wide range of scenes from dynamic landscapes to available light and studio lit portraits, to high-speed sports action.

X Series Design

Panasonic's long time collaboration with Leica inspired a uniquely LUMIX in-house design for a premium lens series exclusively for LUMIX G Series Micro Four Thirds mirrorless cameras. With the X Series Lenses, LUMIX is blending its own unique mix of broadcast video and advanced mirrorless camera technologies into a premium lens line. In several X Series models LUMIX blended forward looking features like advanced near silent Power Zoom (PZ Models) and advanced POWER O.I.S. support for improved video capture. The 35-100mm X lens features a professional grade constant aperture in a compact sealed body design suitable for professional studio and event photography, as well as sports action. (LUMIX G X VARIO 35-100mm, H-HS35100, 35mm camera equivalent: 70-200 mm).

Nano Surface Coating

The LUMIX G X VARIO 35-100mm / F2.8 lens incorporates Panasonic's unique Nano Surface Coating technology which minimizes reflections through the entire visual range (380nm-780nm), resulting in a dramatic reduction of ghosts and flare for extremely clear picture quality.

Travel Light and Protected from Natures Elements

Boasting outstanding compactness, the LUMIX G X VARIO 35-100mm / F2.8 lens is approximately 99.9mm in length and 12.7oz in weight, resulting in extreme mobility. Additionally with a rubber ring on the lens mount, the new lens is designed to stand against moisture and dust making it ideal for outdoor photography enthusiasts. A highly reliable metal mount endures long time use.

Professional Grade Glass

The LUMIX G X VARIO 35-100mm / F2.8 lens system is comprised of 18 lenses in 13 groups. The UED (Ultra Extra-Low Dispersion) glass minimizes chromatic aberration while the UHR (Ultra High Refractive) lens realizes high descriptive performance from corner to corner. Featuring high contrast and resolution from the center to corner at entire zoom range, the new LUMIX G X VARIO 35-100mm/F2,8 ASPH./POWER O.I.S. lens has the ability to capture the details of scenery or portrait with rich perspective.

Advanced Focusing and Aperture Blade Design

The lens' superior inner focus system provides for excellent resolution and contrast without changing the overall length from full life-size magnification to infinity. Seven blades give the aperture a rounded shape that produces an attractively smooth defocus effect in out-of-focus areas when shooting at larger aperture settings. When mounted on any LUMIX G Micro System camera body, users can take advantage of the high-speed, high-precisions Contrast AF (Autofocus) system.

 

 

POWER O.I.S. for Improved HD Video Support

 

 

The lens' integrates POWER O.I.S. (Optical Image Stabilizer) which effectively compensates for both small, fast movement and large, slow movement, making it easy to shoot extremely clear photos even in low-lit situations such as at night or indoors. Adopting an inner focus system driven by a stepping motor, the lens' superior design provides smooth and near silent focusing action which is ideal for both picture and video recording.

Rated 3 out of 5 by 5 reviewers.
Rated 2 out of 5 by Excellent for stills, useless for video I love this lens for stills. It has great contrast and I get lovely pictures from it. However it is horrible for video. I made a comparison on youtube of a video taken with my LX100 and GX7 with the 35-100/2.8 lens at the same focal length. The 35-100/2.8 lens clearly _ADDS_ shake to the captured image. I can do better (capture less shake) with the OIS off! This is even after the latest firmware upgrade in January 2015. May 20, 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 Very good lens, but useless OIS for video I was shocked after trying to use this lens for the first time for handheld video. The so-called optical image stabilization is worse than useless for handheld video -- it actually ADDS micro-shakes! I also have the 12-35 f/2.8, and it is wonderful all around, with perfectly usable OIS. If you want this lens for photography only, or for video using some other form of stabilization, then by all means, this is a very good lens. But do NOT expect to use this lens to shoot any handheld video using its OIS. November 4, 2014
Rated 2 out of 5 by great images, horrible OIS The optical qualities of the H-HS35100 lens are great. Overall focus speed is quite good, and I would see this being a very good lens for many still photographers. However, the OIS is absolutely horrible for video! It creates micro jitters that ruin video shots. My inexpensive Panasonic 14-140mm kit lens, and 12-35mm lens both have very capable OIS that I rely on frequently. I was shocked to see how poorly the 35-100mm lens' OIS performed. This has been confirmed by many other owners of the lens, and yet Panasonic does not seem to acknowledge the issue. Its a pity that such an otherwise wonderful lens would be so expensive and yet so flawed. September 27, 2014
Rated 3 out of 5 by 4K? It's curious that the 4K video capture settings are grayed out in my GH4 video settings with this lens? 4K works great with the 100-300, F4.0-5.6. August 31, 2014
