LeicaLeica D Vario-Elmar 14-50mm lens : Panasonic is pleased to announce the LECIA D Vario-Elmar 14-50mm F3.8-5.6 Mega O.I.S. is a large- diameter standard zoom lens featuring a focal length from 14mm to 50mm and compliance with the Four Thirds System. Positioned below the previously released Leica D Vario-Elmarit 14-50mm F2.8 -3.5 ASPH. Mega O.I.S., the new lens comes in a more compact and light-weighted body while keeping the optical design and meeting Leica`s stringent quality and performance standards. It delivers high resolution and contrast from edge to edge especially at the telephoto end and captures beautiful portrait photos with an attractive smoothness in out-of-focus areas, produced by the seven-blade diaphragm aperture.

The Leica D Vario-Elmar 14-50mm F3.8-5.6 ASPH. Mega O.I.S. comprises 15 lens elements in 11 groups, including two aspherical lenses, minimizing distortion and peripheral vignetting at the wide end. Two ED (extra-low dispersion) lenses reduce chromatic aberration to an absolute minimum. It also incorporates Panasonic`s advanced Mega O.I.S. - an optical image stabilization system controlled by the integrated Venus engine LSI that provides outstanding hand-shake correction. With a minimum focus distance of 29cm and a maximum photographic magnification of 0.42x (35mm equivalent) the new lens makes it possible for the photographer to take outstanding macro shots even without using a tripod.

Leica D Vario-Elmar 14-50mm lens - Availability
As the kit lens in the package of the today announced new LUMIX DMC-L10 digital SLR camera, the Leica D Vario-Elmar 14-50mm F3.8-5.6 ASPH. Mega O.I.S. also supports the contrast AF system, which is newly implemented in the camera. The new lens is also offered separately and will be available in the market around October 2007.

With its outstanding stabilization performance, Panasonic's Mega O.I.S. allows you to use slower shutter speeds more than three steps. To detect and correct the hand-shake accurately, Panasonic’s Venus Engine LSI is incorporated into the lens. This advanced image stabilizer lets you capture clear telephoto shots or shoot in dim lighting without using a tripod.

Leica 14-50mm lens - Aspherical & ED lenses
The new Leica D Vario-Elmar 14-50mm lens uses two aspherical lenses and two ED (extra-low dispersion) lenses to deliver an outstanding optical performance. Across the entire 28-100 mm zoom range, it captures high-resolution, high-contrast images that are clear from corner to corner. The ED lenses suppress chromatic aberration, helping you capture accurate, true-to-life telephoto shots with minimum color bleeding.

Leica 14-50mm lens - Minimum focus distance
With its minimum focus distance of 29 cm even at full zoom, the new lens provides a maximum photographic magnification of 0.42x (35mm equivalent). This combines with Mega O.I.S. hand-shake correction to let you capture outstanding macro shots even at tele-end without using a tripod. Seven aperture blades give the aperture a rounded shape that, when shooting at larger aperture, produces an attractive smoothness in out-of-focus areas.

Leica 14-50mm F2.8 -3.5 ASPH - Contrast AF system support
When mounted on the new DMC-L10, the lens supports the contrast AF system newly integrated in the camera and allows the photographer to use new functions such as face detection. The new lens system uses multi-coated lens elements that reduce ghosts and flare to an absolute minimum, helping deliver an optical performance that meets Leica's lofty standards.
