More Information

Up close and personal

  • Sporting a 42.5mm (35mm equivalent of 85mm) focal length, this prime lens is ideal for portraits, street photography, and close-ups. Whether you're shooting portraits in studio or taking shots of your day out at the food truck festival, you've got the ideal focal range you need to get exceptional images.
  • This prime lens delivers a constant f/1.7 maximum aperture, making it ideal for low-light situations. It delivers an incredibly shallow depth of field so your photos get incredible background bokeh for added artistic flare. Ideal for portraits, this lens allows you to use soft focus to achieve beautifully creative images.
  • Sometimes what's out of focus is as important as what's in focus. The 7-blade circular aperture delivers a smooth, rounded defocus effect in out-of-focus areas of your image, giving your photos exceptional, aesthetically pleasing bokeh.

Find your focus

  • Integrated POWER O.I.S. (optical image stabilizer) makes adjustments for small, quick movements and large, slow movements so you get crisp, clear photos even in when shooting in low-light conditions. That means you can capture stunning images, under the dim lights in the ice rink, of your daughter's huge game winning goal.
  • A noisy camera can ruin a perfect moment. Thankfully, this lens uses an inner focus system driven by a near silent stepping motor, which is ideal for capturing stills and video. When you're filming your daughter's valedictorian speech on graduation day, you won't have to struggle to hear her over the sound of a buzzing autofocus motor.

High-quality construction

  • The aspherical lens design reduces spherical aberrations, delivering better detail and contrast resulting in superb image quality. The design reduces the overall number of elements needed so you get a more compact prime lens.

Extreme Compatibility

  • This premium lens is designed for Micro Four Thirds systems and is compatible with all Micro Four Thirds cameras, including Panasonic G-Series, and Olympus PEN and OM-D cameras.

Review Panasonic 42.5 1.7

I have used the lens for a short time but it has lived up to expectations. It comes complete with, hood, caps, and an oversize lens pouch. I bought the lens to replace an Olympus 45 1.7. I have a Panasonic body with no built in stabilization, so needed the in lens stabilization of the Panny. It also focuses closer for larger close ups. The lenses appear equally sharp corner to corner wide open and sharpen slightly more stopped down.Diffraction softness appears at about f10. I see no purple fringing or distortion on the Panasonic lens when used on the Panasonic body. Background blur is easily achieved and is pretty good. Autofocus speed is instant in good light and slightly slower in dim light. I highly recommend this lens.
