The Lumix S 26mm f/8 is a compact and lightweight manual focus lens that Panasonic says aims to find the perfect balance between portability and quality. The lens offers a fixed focal length of 26mm and a maximum aperture of f/8.

The lens measures a very portable 18.1mm in length and weighs around 58g. As such it is being positioned as a versatile option for everyday, casual and creative photography.
