Panasonic is building out its roster of telephoto prime lenses with the new Leica DG Elmarit 200mm f/2.8 Power O.I.S..

The 400mm equivalent lens delivers the sharpest-ever corner-to-corner image quality of any Lumix lens, according to Panasonic. It’s compatible with Panasonic’s Dual Image Stabilization system and features a weather-proof build.

There are nine aperture blades that stop down to f/22. You can focus on objects as close as 3.8 feet with a magnification of .2x.

The lens will ship in January for $3,000 and includes a 1.4x teleconverter, giving you the equivalent of a 560mm lens.
