Designed to be portable, the LUMIX S lens weighs 350g. It is also dust and splash resistant and is capable of operating at -10°C. Furthermore, it has a fluorine coating on the front lens element to repel water and oil.

For video recording, the lens has a highly effective focus breathing suppression to ensure a smooth and high-quality video.
