Panasonic 45mm F2.8 leica DG Macro ASPH lens
Micro Four Thirds Digital Interchangeable Lens LEICA DG MACRO-ELMARIT 45mm / F2.8 ASPH. / MEGA O.I.S. with Outstanding Image Quality and High Mobility
The lens system uses both an aspherical lens and an ED lens in its fourteen lenses in ten groups to achieve outstanding compactness, taking advantage of the Micro Four Thirds standard to achieve dramatic downsizing while minimizing distortion and chromatic aberration. Panasonic's Mega O.I.S. (Optical Image Stabilizer) suppresses the blurring that is commonly caused by hand-shake, making it easy to shoot sharply focused macro shots and produce detailed images in dimly lit places without using a tripod.
It incorporates an inner focus direct-drive linear motor with three groups of floating structure for focusing, which enables excellent resolution and contrast without changing its overall length from full life-size magnification to infinity. The inclusion of a stepping motor makes the focusing action smooth and silent for use in both photo and movie recording. The closest focusing distance can be instantly changed to 15cm or 50 cm(0.5 ft to 1.64 ft) with the switch on the lens barrel according to the shooting opportunity. The LEICA DG MACRO-ELMARIT 45mm / F2.8 ASPH. / MEGA O.I.S. lens also excels in portraits, middle-range snapshot, or landscapes in addition to the original full life-size macro shots.
When mounted on the LUMIX G Micro System Camera, the lens allows the use of the advanced contrast AF system, which includes a Face Recognition function, for more convenient, more enjoyable shooting. Seven blades give the aperture a rounded shape that produces an attractively smooth effect in out-of-focus areas when shooting at larger aperture settings.
The LEICA DG MACRO-ELMARIT 45mm / F2.8 ASPH. / MEGA O.I.S. lens also features a highly reliable metal mount and uses multi-coated lens elements that minimize ghosts and flare to further enhance its optical performance.
