The Panasonic Leica DG Summilux 12mm f/1.4 Lens is a wide angle prime with a bright f/1.4 maximum aperture that makes this lens a great choice for evening and low light landscape and night sky shooting. Pairing Leica's design legacy with Panasonic's technological innovation, this versatile wide-angle prime is distinguished by both its optical merits as well as intuitive handling and contemporary functionality.
A fast and optically refined wide-angle prime, the Leica DG Summilux 12mm f/1.4 ASPH. Lens from Panasonic is designed for mirrorless Micro Four Thirds digital cameras. This wide-angle 12mm f/1.4 lens provides a 24mm equivalent focal length.
Fast f/1.4 Aperture
Its f/1.4 maximum aperture is well-suited to working in difficult and low lighting conditions, and also affords greater control over depth of field for selective focus techniques.
Benefitting the optical assets, this lens also incorporates a smooth and quiet autofocus motor that is well-suited to both stills and video recording and a manual AF/MF switch lends direct focus mode adjustment for more intuitive handling.
The lens’s optical design employs a pair of aspherical elements, two ultra-extra-low dispersion elements, and one extra-low dispersion element in order to control both spherical and chromatic aberrations for a high degree of sharpness and clarity from edge to edge. A rounded nine-blade diaphragm contributes to a pleasing bokeh quality when making shallow depth of field imagery.
The metal construction of the lens is durable as well as splash- and dust-resistant when paired with Lumix Micro Four Thirds cameras for working in harsh. There’s also a manual aperture ring for those who prefer making adjustments the traditional way.
