DESCRIPTION

• A versatile wide-angle zoom, the Leica DG Vario-Elmarit 8-18mm f/2.8-4 ASPH. Lens from Panasonic is a 16-36mm equivalent lens that blends optical excellence with durable, refined physical design for Micro Four Thirds mirrorless cameras. Designed in collaboration with Leica, this lens employs a series of low dispersion and aspherical elements to realize sharp and clear imagery with controlled fringing and aberrations, and a Nano Surface Coating also helps to minimize flare and ghosting for increased contrast and colour accuracy. The durable metal lens body is splash, dust, and freezeproof for use in trying environmental conditions, and a fast 240 fps autofocus drive suits both photo and video shooting in a variety of working situations.

• Wide-angle zoom designed for Micro Four Thirds mirrorless cameras, this lens offers a 16-36mm equivalent focal length range.

• One aspherical ED element, three aspherical elements, two extra-low dispersion elements, and one ultra high-refractive index element all combine to suppress colour fringing, chromatic aberrations, and spherical aberrations for high clarity, sharpness, and colour accuracy.

• Nano Surface Coating has been applied to individual elements to control lens flare and ghosting for improved contrast and colour fidelity when working in strong lighting conditions.

• Fast 240 fps autofocus drive delivers smooth, accurate, and quiet focusing performance to benefit both stills and video applications.

• Splash, dust, and freezeproof design benefits working in inclement weather conditions.

• Rounded seven-blade diaphragm contributes to a smooth and pleasing bokeh quality

  • Yes, I would recommend this lens to a friend; no hesitation.
    Reviewed by The Coops - June 30, 2018

    I am a long-time enthusiast photographer. Having just moved to the M43 system because of its lighter weight and advanced features compared to my more traditional FF system I was looking for a lens that "ticked the boxes" for high quality and reduced weight. This lens does these very nicely. It is also of high quality build. The focal length range makes it a more versatile lens than some.

  • Light, pin-sharp, with front filter thread
    Reviewed by RoentgenX - June 28, 2018

    I have mainly used this for travel and architectural photography. It is light and responsive. I have been shooting wide open a lot of the time and am happy with the results. It replaced my excellent Oly 7-14mm f 2.8 Pro and for me this was a good move, simply because of the ergonomics.

  • A sharp wide angle lens
    Reviewed by Somerleaze - May 28, 2017

    I have only just started using it but find it good for photographing garden borders and for individual flowers and getting the background out of focus. Hoping to start using it for video this week.
