Panasonic Lumix S 35mm F1.8 (S-S35) officially announced

The specs of the Panasonic Lumix 35mm F1.8 may not be dramatic by modern standards, but it’s an important lens for owners of L-mount cameras, partly because it’s an affordable fast prime when so many full frame lenses are very expensive, and partly because it’s the last addition to Panasonic’s set of four f/1.8 prime lenses deliberately designed to offer similar size, handling and center of gravity.

The four lenses in this group now include the Panasonic Lumix S 85mm f/1.8, Lumix S 50mm f/1.8, Lumix S 24mm f/1.8 and this new Lumix S 35mm F1.8 (model no S-S35).

With near-identical size, features, controls and design, these four primes are designed for both photographers and videographers but with a special eye on gimbal users. By designing these lenses with similar sizes, operation and center of gravity, Panasonic hopes to make them attractive to gimbal users who want to swap lenses at will without having to keep rebalancing their gimbal.

The Panasonic Lumix S 35mm F1.8 is the last of a family four near-same sized F1.8 primes particularly well suited to gimbal use and the lighter Lumix S5. (Image credit: Panasonic)
