LUMIX G VARIO 14-140mm / F3.5-5.6 ASPH. / POWER O.I.S. for
“European Compact System Zoom Lens 2013-2014”
Panasonic today has announced that the company has been awarded a prestigious EISA (European Imaging Sound Association) Award for the Digital Single Lens Mirrorless (DSLM) camera LUMIX DMC-GH3 and the interchangeable lens LUMIX G VARIO 14-140mm / F3.5-5.6 ASPH. / POWER O.I.S. (H-FS14140) of LUMIX G.
The compact system camera LUMIX GH3 won ‘European Photo-Video Camera 2013-2014’ for its versatility as a high class still and video camera with the EISA Awards panel saying, “The Panasonic LUMIX DMC-GH3 offers the best video quality of any combined still and movie camera in this price segment – and actually in some higher segments as well. It offers full manual as well as completely automatic video recording, making it ideal for in-the-field shooting as well as more formal situations. It's also a pretty handy stills camera with a full range of controls, making it an impressively flexible package. The Panasonic LUMIX DMC-GH3 is very popular with videographers partly because it is a very lightweight and rugged, weather-resistant camera that’s serviced by a great selection of high-quality lenses.”
The EISA judges also appreciated the weight reduction of the kit lens naming the LUMIX G VARIO 14-140mm / F3.5-5.6 ASPH. / POWER O.I.S. (H-FS14140) the ‘European Compact System Zoom Lens 2013-2014’ stating, “With this update of the LUMIX G VARIO 14-140mm / F3.5-5.6 ASPH. / POWER O.I.S., Panasonic offers a much smaller and lighter version of its kit lens, which has a smooth and silent operation mode and looks perfect fitted to the DMC-GH3 and DMC-G6 LUMIX cameras. The weight reduction of almost 200g and the improved Optical Image Stabilizer POWER O.I.S., both make this a much more user-friendly lens, while the seven-bladed aperture creates smooth out-of-focus highlights.”
In addition to the digital imaging product, Panasonic is also awarded with the VIERA TV TX-P60ZT60 for ‘European Home Cinema TV of the year 2013-2014’ and the SC-PMX9 Stereo Music System for ‘European Compact Hi-Fi System 2013-2014’ by the EISA judges.
