Photography News: Designed for Demanding Landscape Photographers, the Leica DG Summilux 12mm f/1.4 ASPH From Panasonic Offers Micro Four Thirds Shooters the Utmost in Image Quality in a Splash- and Dust-Proof Body

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - June 15, 2016) - B&H Photo would like to share the announcement of the Leica DG Summilux 12mm f/1.4 ASPH lens for Micro Four Thirds from Panasonic, which was designed to fulfill the demanding requirements of adventurous landscape photographers. Offering a 35mm-equivalent focal length of 24mm, this wide-angle lens can capture vast scenes with ease, and thanks to splash- and dust-proof metal construction, users will be able to explore the outdoors without worrying about the lens. Also, the fast f/1.4 aperture benefits users working in low-light situations, and helps to produce shallow-depth-of-field imagery.

To maintain a compact form factor while maintaining quality, this lens uses two aspherical elements and one extra-low dispersion and two ultra-extra-low dispersion elements to minimize distortion and aberrations. The external design supports intuitive operation with a physical aperture ring, a manual focus ring, and an AF/MF switch. Additionally, it has smooth aperture adjustment and silent autofocus for capturing high-quality 4K video, and a nine-blade circular aperture for smooth bokeh.
