Panasonic will release a new lens, the Leica DG Vario-Elmarit 8-18mm/F2.8-4.0 ASPH. on May 25th. This is an ultra-wide zoom lens, covering 16-36mm (in 35mm equivalent). It employs the Micro Four Thirds system and is the second of the Leica DG Vario-Elmarit F2.8-4.0 zoom lens series. Nano surface coating designed to produce minimum flares is also applied to the lens. Inside, it involves an aspherical ED lens, three aspherical lenses, two ED lenses and an UHD lens. This prevents aberrations while achieving high resolution and high contrast. This lens combines excellent performance, which cleared the German manufacturer’s touch optical regulations, and compactness. It will cost 158,000 yen (estimated).
