Panasonic is pleased to introduce the new Lumix 9.1-megapixel DMC-TZ5, featuring a 28mm wide-angle 10x optical zoom Leica DC lens (equivalent to 28-280mm on a 35mm film camera). The 28mm wide angle lens can capture the subject or scene wider at the same standpoint than a normal 35mm camera, zooming in or out with the 10x powerful optical zoom.
The 9.1-megapixel DMC-TZ5 condense a 28mm wide-angle LEICA DC VARIO-ELMAR lens with 10x optical zoom into a compact body. Comprising 11 elements in 9 groups, including an ED (extra-low dispersion) lens and 3 aspherical lenses, this advanced lens unit surpasses Leica's exceptional standards and delivers an outstanding optical performance. The 28mm wide-angle lens makes capturing dynamic wide-perspective shots of a sweeping landscape or large architectural structure as well as fitting a whole group of people into a group shotindoors easy.
