Panasonic announces Lumix S 50mm F1.8 L-mount lens

Panasonic has released the Lumix S 50mm F1.8 lens for full-frame L-mount bodies. This compact lens has nine elements, including one ED (Extra Low Dispersion) element to suppress chromatic aberrations, and one UHR (Ultra High Refractive Index) element. According to Panasonic, three aspherical elements help the lens achieve high resolutions at F1.8, with smooth surfaces to ensure pleasing bokeh. The lens has a nine-blade aperture to ensure out-of-focus highlights remain circular as you stop the lens down, and its focus group is driven by a linear motor.
