The world’s first* 18.8x zoom, plus 1:2.9 macro reproduction
Zooming from 16mm (35mm equivalent： 25mm) to 300mm (35mm equivalent： 465mm), at its widest‑angle setting this lens can shoot sweeping panoramic landscapes and intimate interiors, and as a telephoto it can capture powerful close‑ups of distant subjects. Macro focusing down to 1:2.9 is also provided.
