Description

This wide zoom lens fuses LEICA’s image rendering capabilities and nimble mobility. From ultra-wide-angle 16mm landscapes to standard 36mm snapshots (35mm camera equivalent), the incredible resolution of this LEICA DG lens renders everything clearly from corner to corner. It also accommodates a 67mm filter for greater creativity in both photos and videos. Designed for reliable use even under poor weather conditions, this agile, high-quality lens is ideal for shooting in the field.

Put an end to unwanted ghosting and flaring – the Nano Surface Coating has been applied to lenses within the system. This special, ultra-thin coating was developed originally by Panasonic to reduce bothersome reflections across the entire light spectrum. The result: crystal-clear pictures even if you’re photographing a light source in the dark.

With video support any user has everything they need for recording with their LUMIX camera. Not only does it perform smooth aperture changes so there are no sudden jumps on exposure, it also boasts a silent design for enhanced capture of the scene’s audio. What’s more, the stunning AF performance of this lens records excellent 4K video, where precise focusing is essential.

Brave the elements in nearly any kind of weather or shooting location. This lens features a splash/dust/freezeproof construction that is tough enough to withstand even heavy field use. It protects the lens system inside from sand, rain and more, making it perfect for shooting under harsh conditions. Now there is nothing holding you back from capturing the creative nature or landscape shots you want.
