The DMC-FZ100 features a 25-600mm f/2.8-5.2 LEICA DC VARIO-ELMARIT high-quality lens (35mm camera equivalent). With a 24x optical zoom (35mm camera equivalent: 600mm) that draws your subjects right up close, you can freely capture decisive sports scenes, along with the natural expressions of animals and details that you can't even see with your bare eyes – in both photos and movies.
The 25mm ultra wide-angle lens* has about twice the shooting area as a standard 35mm lens.
The DMC-FZ100 is an advanced photographic tool for recording not only great photos but also beautiful full-HD movies. In addition to Motion JPEG images, the DMC-FZ100 can record high-resolution full-HD 1,920 x 1,080 60i (NTSC) / 50i (PAL) movies in AVCHD (MPEG-4/H.264)*1 format.
