The stunning resolution of this LEICA DG lens renders everything clearly, from corner to corner. Designed for reliable use even under poor weather conditions, this handy and high-quality lens is all you'll need.

POWER O.I.S. – ultra-sharp photos

Capture scenes carefree or at the spur of the moment. The optical image stabilization (O.I.S.) technology built directly into the lens ensures your photos will look great, with sharp blur-free contours across the entire picture.Taking highly popular POWER O.I.S. further, this advanced technology immediately compensates even large camera shake and vibrations that may occur in photography. So you can capture true-to-life scenes without the need for a tripod. In the end, you’ll enjoy wonderfully crisp images.

Nano Surface Coating – clarity from all angles

Put an end to unwanted ghosting and flaring – the Nano Surface Coating has been applied to lenses within the system. This special, ultra-thin coating was developed originally by Panasonic to reduce bothersome reflections across the entire light spectrum. The result: crystal-clear pictures even if you’re photographing a light source in the dark.

Video Support – perfect video-recording

With video support any user has everything they need for recording with their LUMIX camera. Not only does it perform smooth aperture changes so there are no sudden jumps in exposure, it also boasts a silent design for enhanced capture of the scene’s audio. What’s more, the stunning AF performance of this lens records excellent 4K video, where precise focusing is essential.

Lens Construction

14 elements in 12 groups: – 4 aspherical lenses – 2 Extra-Low Dispersion lenses Aspherical (ASPH) lenses reduce size and weight, effectively preventing spherical and distortion aberration. Extra-Low Dispersion (ED) lenses correct chromatic aberration rendering sharp, high-contrast images with clear colours from corner to corner.
