A compact, lightweight macro lens for light footwork.
Capture the delicate beauty of flowers and the lives of insects in life-size images. Renders realistic images with uncompromising high performance. The Double Focus System and new Dual-Phase Linear Motor provide high-speed, high-definition focus. Superior optical performance delivers high resolution, smooth bokeh, and the shape of the glow of light, expressing all kinds of beauty.
Two-thirds shorter and half the weight of conventional macro lenses
While macro lenses tend to be quite large, Panasonic has used its unique technologies to reduce overall size successfully. Compared to conventional macro lenses, the LUMIX S 100mm F2.8 MACRO is approximately two thirds shorter and half the weight. Weighing a total of just 1kg when combined with the LUMIX S5II, the compact, lightweight system can be used with one hand.
Life-size close-up photography
Features a maximum magnification of 1x, allowing you to capture your subject at life size. Capture realistic images of the delicate beauty of flowers, the lives of insects, fine detail on craftworks, the texture of food, and much more.
It can be used not only for macro photography but also for a wide range of other applications, such as medium-telephoto portraiture and landscape photography.
S-E100 lens construction
The optimized configuration has 13 elements in 11 groups, including 3 ASPH, 2 UED and 1 ED lenses to minimize aberrations and ensure superb resolution.
S-E100 MTF chart
Offering outstanding sharpness and resolution from the centre to the edges of the frame, this is an ideal lens for the LUMIX full-frame system, and provides creative opportunities without compromise.
･For lenses that are capable of compensating distortion, the horizontal axis shows the distance from the centre of the corrected image.
Efficient workflow thanks to unified design
LUMIX S 100mm F2.8 MACRO lens has the same size, filter size, and operability as the LUMIX S F1.8 fixed focal length lens series. The centre of gravity is aligned closely, allowing for smooth lens changes when shooting video using a gimbal or drone. In addition, the image rendering performance is also identical, allowing smooth post-production.
