Panasonic Lumix G Vario 100-300mm with Mega Optical Image Stabilizer
The great part about this lens is it gives the photographer who has the most challenging subjects, the ability to shoot pictures without actually getting too close to the subject. For example, subjects such as sporting events, wild animals and large aircraft are easier than ever to shoot. Traditionally, a photographer would have to carry a cumbersome, heavy tripod on which to carry a heavy lens, and a large conventional ultra tele-photo zoom lens to capture these shots, not to mention the strength required to carry everything around.
For the serious photographer, this equipment is needed to get the perfect photo. Whether in the wild, trying to take perfect pictures of animals in action, or for the photographer who takes pictures at major sporting events, this was the only way to get the correct photos to show the action .
However, with the new Panasonic 100-300mm lens, it is no longer necessary to carry such cumbersome equipment. Panasonic’s Mega Optical Image Stabilizer (OIS) is able to compensate for the hand shake that traditionally would alter zoom shots and cause significant blurring to your finished photos. There are seven blades inside the lens that give it a rounded shape. These blades give the finished product a smooth effect when a photographer is in an area where he cannot get a close shot.
These blades also give the photographer the ability to remove subjects from their background. This is a must have for every serious and amateur photographer. It’s also a great lens if you are trying to make moving shots. Panasonic’s Mega Optical Image Stabilizer is a new invention, a long time in coming. Imagine how easy it will be now to get the perfect photo without having to worry about the traditional hand shaking or trying to reach in with the old lenses, to get the perfect action shot.
