Extraordinary Image Class
in a Condensed Package
The very first Leica lens for Micro Four Thirds. It features extraordinary image class in a condensed package. Compatible with the Panasonic LUMIX G Micro Four Thirds digital cameras.
Equivalent to a 90mm lens mounted on a 35mm SLR film camera), the lens captures incomparable quality images that meet with the legendary LEICA quality standards. This Leica lens employs an aspherical lens plus an single ED lens made up of of fourteen lenses set out in ten groups.
The lens uses the Micro Four Thirds specification advantages to realize a substantial decrease in size, and at the same time reducing distortion and image glare. The Mega Panasonic Optical Image Stabilizer (called O.I.S.) reduces blurring that is most often caused by hand-holding the camera, allowing for easier sharply-focused macro photos even in poorly-lit locations without requiring a tripod.
It includes and integrated inner focus motor allowing action to be smooth and stealth-like when photographing still and video images. By moving a switch located on the barrel of the lens, Minimum focusing distance can quickly be switched to 5.9 in. or 19.7 in., around 150mm or 500mm, respectively). This lens is superb when shooting portraits, landscape and mid-range snapshots, in addition to fantastic macro photography.
When attached to a LUMIX G Micro Camera System, the 45mm lens allows use of a sophisticated Auto Focus contrast (AF) function, that includes the Panasonic Face Recognition utility. The lens consists of seven blades, that allow pleasing and smooth background blurring when photographing at large aperture openings. The lens also includes a reliable-proven metal mount, and uses lens elements that are multi-coated to cut down on glare and further improve optical presentation.
The lens features a built-in stabilizer allowing you to photograph your close-up subjects in real-life size. It's also great when used as a medium-range telephoto lens for portrait work, everyday snapshots and landscape photography.
