Features

Aspherical Lenses
Four large-diameter aspherical lenses and one ED (extra-low dispersion) lens help the lens meet Leica's extremely high optical performance standards. They help capture images that are clear from corner to corner across the entire zoom range, with minimal distortion.

Multi-Coated
Multi-coated lens elements reduce ghosting and flare to an absolute minimum, enabling the lens to deliver an optical performance that meets Leica's lofty standards.

Aperture Ring
The included aperture ring, in addition to the zoom and focus rings, provides users with the kind of easy, pleasant, intuitive operation offered by familiar film cameras.

Circular Aperture
7-blade circular aperture diaphragm produces brilliant out-of-focus characteristics.

Four Thirds Standard Lens Mount
Use of the Four Thirds Standard means that this lens can also be used with other manufacturers that have adopted this digital camera standard.
