Covering a focusing distance from ultra-wide angle to super telephoto, this new Panasonic Leica DG Vario-Elmarit F2.8-4.0 series achieves exceptionally high descriptiveness for both photo and video recording and yet its size is compact. All lenses also take advantage of Panasonic's Nano Surface Coating technology to minimize ghosting and flaring.

The Panasonic Leica premium optics boasts a rugged, dust/splash-proof design and is freeze-proof down to -10℃ to deliver professional use under harsh conditions. The high-quality video recording capability is also one of the advantages of this premium lens series. The Leica DG Vario-Elmarit F2.8-4.0 Series will expand in 2017 with the -under development- Panasonic 50-200mm telephoto zoom lens.

Comprised of 15 elements in 10 groups, the lens system features an aspherical ED (Extra-low Dispersion) lens, three aspherical lenses, two ED lenses and an UHR (Ultra High Refractive Index) lens.

The use of these lenses effectively suppresses spherical distortion or chromatic aberration to achieve high resolution and contrast from center to corners. The sensor drive at max. 240 fps enables to take full advantage of cameras with high-speed, high-precision Contrast autofocus. This technology also helps to reduce wobbling.

Notably, the new lens excels in video recording performance. In addition to the silent operation achieved by the inner focus drive system, the micro-step drive system in the aperture control section helps the camera to smoothly capture brightness changes when zooming or panning.

The optical design achieves exceptional stability to minimize image shifts during zooming. The autofocus tracking performance when zooming is also improved thanks to high-speed frame analysis for focus control.
