Hands-on with Panasonic’s new 70-300mm F4.5-5.6 for L-mount

The Lumix S 70-300mm F4.5-5.6 Macro OIS is a tele-zoom lens designed for Panasonic’s full-frame mirrorless cameras. It brings a useful focal range to telephoto shooters with a bit more reach, and at a lower price point, than the company’s constant aperture tele-zoom options.

Panasonic says the lens was designed with professional photographers in mind, though it doesn’t carry the ‘Pro’ moniker found on some of its pricier optics. On the next few slides we’ll take a look at the various features packed into this lens.
