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.

Wide-Angle Prime

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.

Fast Autofocus

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.

Premium Optics

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.

High-Quality Build

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.
