Lens Description

The Panasonic Leica DG Vario-Elmarit 8-18mm F/2.8-4 ASPH is an ultra-wide to normal zoom designed for cameras with a Four-Thirds (2X) sensor. This bright variable-aperture zoom covers a 8mm to 18mm focal-range. It provides the same field of view as a 16-36mm lens on a Full-Frame camera. The body of this lens is weatherproof against adverse weather such as rain and snow. It has sealing to prevent entry of water and dust.

This zoom can focus down to 23cm from the imaging plane which gives it a maximum magnification of 0.12X. The lens supports autofocus and features a switch to disengage AF for focusing manually. A built-in focus motor is used to set the focus-distance. It allowed Panasonic to optimize the motor precisely for this lens in order to maximize performance.

This lens is only available for Micro Four-Thirds. Follow this link for all current compatible digital cameras: Micro Four-Thirds mount cameras.
