The Panasonic Leica 100-400mm f/4-6.3 ASPH Power OIS is a telephoto lens designed to suit the Micro Four Thirds system and offers a truly expansive 200-800mm equivalent focal length range.

Super Telephoto Zoom Lens

The Panasonic Leica DG Vario-Elmar 100-400mm f/4-6.3 Lens is a versatile super telephoto that retains a relatively compact form factor suitable for portable Micro Four Thirds setups. With a focal length equivalent to 200-800mm after crop factor, it is perfect for wildlife and nature & sports photography.


Designed in collaboration with Leica, the 20 elements, 13 groups optical design features one aspherical extra-low dispersion element, one Ultra Extra-Low Dispersion element, and two extra-low dispersion elements. The combination of aspherical and low dispersion elements helps to drastically reduce chromatic and spherical aberrations throughout the zoom range, keeping your image clear and sharp. A rounded nine-blade diaphragm contributes to a pleasing bokeh quality when working with selective focus and shallow depth of field techniques.

Autofocus Motor

Benefitting both stills shooting and video recording, the Panasonic 100-400 offers quick and accurate focus. Its 240 fps autofocus motor is fast, precise, and nearly silent, and supports stills and video applications. A focus limiter allows you to constrain the focusing range from 16.4 ft. to infinity. Dedicated levers are available to select the Focus Limiter position. The minimum focusing distance is 4.3', which pairs with an equivalent maximum magnification of 0.5x to support working with close-up subjects.

POWER O.I.S. Mechanism

Benefitting image sharpness, a POWER O.I.S. system helps to control camera shake for sharper handheld shooting. This system is also compatible with the Dual I.S. function in select Lumix G cameras, which more effectively minimizes the appearance of camera shake by using both sensor-shift and lens-shift type stabilization methods.

High-Quality Build

The 100-400mm features a gapless construction that renders the lens both dust- and moisture-resistant to support photographing in outdoor and harsh environments. A built-in rotating tripod collar allows you to switch between horizontal and vertical shooting positions, and keeps the lens controls in the same place once rotated for more intuitive handling.
An integrated hide-away lens hood helps to eliminate lens flare and ghosting. Additionally, a zoom ring lock prevents unwanted lens creep from occurring while carrying the lens.

Movri Canada, providing the mail-delivery system, is set out to make the gear available at more affordable prices through online rentals.
