High-Quality Optics & Build

Designed in collaboration with Leica, the 8-18’s ten-group/fifteen-element design features one aspherical ED element, three aspherical elements, two extra-low dispersion elements, and one ultra-high-refractive index element that all combine to suppress color fringing, chromatic aberrations, and spherical aberrations for high clarity, sharpness, and color accuracy. Nano Surface Coating has been applied to individual elements to control lens flare and ghosting for improved contrast and color fidelity when working in strong lighting conditions. Rounded seven-blade diaphragm contributes to a smooth and pleasing bokeh quality. Additionally the durable metal lens body is splash, dust, and freeze proof for use in trying environmental conditions.

Fast 240 fps Autofocus

Fast 240 fps autofocus drive delivers smooth, accurate, and quiet focusing performance to benefit both stills and video applications.
