The Panasonic Lumix G Leica DG Summilux 15mm F1.7 ASPH Lens is a premium wide-angle lens for Micro Four Thirds cameras. The Panasonic Summilux 15mm F1.7 ASPH offers an angle view equivalent to 30mm on a full frame and is compatible with the Panasonic GM1. The Panasonic Summilux 15mm F1.7 ASPH boasts a high speed AF, three aspherical lenses, Nano Surface Coating, a superior inner focus system, and supreme optical performance.
High Precision, High Speed AF
The inclusion of newly developed stepping motor makes the focusing action smooth and silent for use in both photo and video recording. Notably the performance of AF is by far superior to the phase-difference AF when fast lens with smaller F value is used. When mounted on the cameras of LUMIX G, you can take advantage of the high-speed, high-precision Contrast AF system.
Nano Surface Coating
With Panasonic's Nano Surface technology the reflection is dramatically minimized at entire visual light range (380nm-780nm) by applying the extra-low refractive index coating with nano-sized structure on the surface of the lens. It results in the super clear picture with dramatic reduction of ghost and flare.
9 Elements in 7 Groups
The new lens system is made up of 9 elements in 7 groups using 3 aspherical lenses. The aspherical lenses suppress spherical aberration and distortion effectively while enabling the lens unit to be made smaller.
Superior Inner Focus System
The Panasonic Lumix 15mm F1.7 incorporates a superior inner focus system, which enables excellent resolution and contrast from close-up to infinity. The inclusion of a newly developed stepping motor makes the focusing action smooth, silent and quicker for use in both photo and video recording.
Supreme Optical Performance
This Panasonic lens comes equipped with an aperture ring and AF/MF switch for direct, intuitive operation. Furthermore, the robust metal design of the Panasonic Lumix 15mm F1.7 including the hood, is highly reliable and durable for repeated exchange of the lens.
Perfect for Use with Panasonic GM1
The Panasonic Lumix G Leica DG Summilux 15mm F1.7 ASPH Lens is the perfect companion for the Panasonic Lumix GM1 due to its small diameter, lightweight feel, and compact construction.
