8-18mm f/2.8-4 Leica DG Vario-Elmarit ASPH.
Wide-angle Zoom Lens
A versatile wide-angle zoom lens for Micro Four Thirds mirrorless cameras, the Leica DG Vario-Elmarit 8-18mm f/2.8-4 ASPH. Lens from Panasonic is a 16-36mm equivalent lens that combines impressive optical performance with a robust physical design. Created in collaboration with Leica, the lens features one aspherical ED element, three aspherical elements, two extra-low dispersion elements, and one ultra high-refractive index element to capture sharp, clear imagery with controlled fringing and aberrations.
A Nano Surface Coating also works to minimise flare and ghosting for increased contrast and colour accuracy when working in strong lighting conditions, and a rounded seven-blade diaphragm contributes to a smooth and pleasing bokeh quality. The durable metal lens body is splash, dust, and freezeproof for use in changeable environmental conditions, and a fast 240 fps autofocus drive suits both photo and video applications.
