  • Panasonic Leica DG Summilux 12mm f/1.4 ASPH

    A fast and optically refined wide-angle prime, the Leica DG Summilux 12mm f/1.4 ASPH. Lens from Panasonic is a 24mm equivalent lens designed for Micro Four Thirds digital cameras. Characterized by its truly bright f/1.4 maximum aperture, this lens is ideal for working in low-light conditions and also affords a wealth of control over focus placement for using shallow depth of field techniques. The optical design employs a pair of aspherical elements, two ultra extra-low dispersion elements, and one extra-low dispersion element in order to control both spherical and chromatic aberrations for a high degree of sharpness and clarity from edge to edge. Benefitting the optical assets, this lens also incorporates a smooth and quiet autofocus motor that is well-suited to both stills and video recording, and a manual AF/MF switch lends direct focus mode adjustment for more intuitive handling. Additionally, the all-metal construction of the lens is also weather-resistant in order to permit working in trying environmental conditions. Pairing Leica’s design legacy with Panasonic’s technological innovation, this versatile wide-angle prime is distinguished by both its optical merits as well as intuitive handling and contemporary functionality.

  • Panasonic LUMIX G 100-400mm, Leica DG Vario-Elmar Lens

    A Micro Four Thirds lens with a not-so-micro zoom range, the Leica DG Vario-Elmar 100-400mm f/4-6.3 ASPH. POWER O.I.S. Lens from Panasonic offers a truly expansive 200-800mm equivalent focal length range, yet retains a relatively compact stature to suit the Micro Four Thirds system. Characterized by its Leica branding, this sophisticated optic employs aspherical and extra-low dispersion elements to significantly reduce chromatic and spherical aberrations throughout the zoom range for a high degree of image clarity and sharpness. Also benefitting image sharpness, a POWER O.I.S. system, which is compatible with Lumix G camera’s Dual I.S. function, helps to minimize the appearance of camera shake for sharper handheld shooting at longer focal lengths.

  • Panasonic Lumix G X Vario 35-100mm/F2.8 ASPH.

    The 35-100mm is impressively compact in size, and significantly lighter and more compact than notionally-similar 50-150mm F2.8 lenses for APS-C SLRs, let alone 70-200mm F2.8s for full frame. However this comes with a trade-off in terms of its ability to isolate subjects by blurring the background – in this respect it’ll give similar results to an F3.5 lens on APS-C, or an F5.6 lens on full frame.

    Naturally the lens is designed with movie shooting in mind, with a linear stepper motor for near-silent autofocus, and Panasonic’s video-optimised ‘Power OIS’ stabilization system. The complex 18 element / 13 group optical system features elements crafted from Ultra Extra-Low Dispersion (UED) and Extra-Low Dispersion (ED) glass, and uses Panasonic’s Nano Surface Coating to minimize internal reflections and flare. The diaphragm uses 7 rounded blades to give a circular aperture for attractive rendition of out-of-focus backgrounds. On paper this all adds up to a tempting specification.

    Being a Micro Four Thirds lens, the 35-100mm will work on Olympus cameras just as well as Panasonic’s Lumix G models, and it looks like particularly interesting match to the Olympus OM-D E-M5 – one of our favourite cameras of the past year. Of course it’s also likely to appeal to users of Panasonic’s enthusiast bodies, such as the DMC-G5 and GX1.

  • Olympus M. Zuiko Digital ED 300mm f/4 IS Pro Lens

    Outstanding F2.8 large-aperture super-telephoto lens. It is equivalent to 600 mm on a 35mm camera. You can accurately get the expression into a distant subject we would normally miss altogether, and feel the distinct super-telephoto effect. This overwhelming super-telephoto lens invites you to another image world. Perfect lens for wildlife and field sports photography.

    Luxurious three ED lenses are used to provide the highest image quality with optimal resolution and contrast.

    ** Drop in PL filter, ND4, ND8 and Clear filter included.

    Directly compatible with E-System cameras. Compatible with Micro Four Thirds digital cameras (PEN\OM-D) through use of the MMF-2 or MMF-3 (Four Thirds Lens Adapter to Micro Four Thirds Lens Adapter). The MMF-3 is dust and splash proof for use with that type of lens on a dust and splash proof body. Note, AF performance may diminish as compared to being on an E-System body.

  • Panasonic Lumix G Leica DG Summilux 15mm f/1.7 ASPH. Lens

    The Panasonic LUMIX G Leica DG Summilux 15mm f/1.7 ASPH. lens is a prime wide-angle lens designed for Micro Four Thirds sensors. Its 35mm-equivalent focal length is 30mm, making it ideally suited for everyday shooting applications. The fast f/1.7 maximum aperture benefits working in low-light conditions and also avails greater control over the focus position for shallow depth of field and selective focus techniques. Intuitive control over the aperture selection is also possible through the use of the manual aperture ring. In regard to focus, an internal focusing system with a stepping AF motor promotes fast, quiet, and smooth performance.

    The optical design incorporates three aspherical elements to reduce distortion and spherical aberration for sharper imagery with greater overall clarity. Additionally, a Nano Surface Coating has been applied to lens elements to suppress lens flare and ghosting for more contrast-rich, color neutral photos and movies.
