Panasonic Leica DG Vario-Elmarit 8-18mm f/2.8-4 ASPH Lens
A versatile wide-angle zoom, the Panasonic 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 realise sharp and clear imagery with controlled fringing and aberrations, and a Nano Surface Coating also helps to minimise flare and ghosting for increased contrast and colour accuracy. The durable metal lens body is splash, dust, and freeze-proof 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.
