Photography News: Panasonic continues to bolster Micro Four Thirds with
the release of the Leica DG Vario-Summilux 10-25mm f/1.7 ASPH. Lens.
This is a world’s-first f/1.7 zoom, has a 20-50mm equivalent range, and
is optimized for stills and video.
NEW YORK–(BUSINESS WIRE)–lt;a href="https://twitter.com/hashtag/cameras?src=hash" target="_blank"gt;#cameraslt;/agt;–B&H Photo would like to share the announcement of the Panasonic Leica
DG Vario-Summilux 10-25mm f/1.7 ASPH. Lens for Micro Four Thirds.
Laying claim to the title of world’s-first full-range f/1.7 zoom, this
spectacular lens should be very appealing to many, especially with its
versatile 20-50mm equivalent range. Also, the lens has large control
rings, including a de-clicked aperture ring for smooth iris pulls during
Ensuring maximum quality, the lens uses three aspherical lenses and four
Extra-low Dispersion (ED) elements to minimize aberrations and
distortion. Also, the lens has a fast 240 fps internal-focus autofocus
system that will help photographers and videographers lock onto their
subjects with ease. Photographers will appreciate that the dust- and
splash-resistant lens can replace multiple lenses and make travel easier.
