Ultra-wide to wide angle

Whether you’re shooting at an ultra-wide 16mm perspective to capture as much in the frame as possible or you zoom in to a standard 36mm angle (35mm camera equivalent), the Panasonic Leica DG 8-18mm f/2.8-4.0 ASPH Lens renders high resolution imagery across the spectrum while opening up new possibilities with both unique and typical shooting angles. Architecture, landscapes, city skylines and more will take on a new life with this gorgeous lens. 


Ideal lens for video recording

This Panasonic lens isn’t just a dream for still photography – it also delivers on the video front! This wide-angle Panasonic lens features remarkable AF performance, so it’s capable of fast and accurate focusing for excellent 4K video results. It also enables smooth aperture changes so you won’t see any sudden, unnatural shifts in exposure in the final footage – and with silent handling, you don’t have to worry about any noise as a result of lens operation that could otherwise interfere with your audio. Amateur or seasoned video-maker, you’ll love the results with this lens.

Beautiful optical quality and performance

With a highly sophisticated design and strict quality standards, you can trust a LEICA DG lens to deliver outstanding optical quality for images you will fall in love with. Featuring one aspherical ED element, three aspherical elements, two extra-low dispersion elements and one ultra high-refractive index element, both chromatic and spherical aberrations are minimised and colour-fringing is reduced to ensure clear and sharp images with colour fidelity.

Create beautiful bokeh

Whether you wish to capture an environmental portrait with just your subject in sharp focus in the foreground, or an eye-catching urban monument in context of its surrounds, the rounded seven-blade diaphragm goes a long way to delivering smooth and aesthetic bokeh qualities to enhance your photography. With a bright maximum aperture of f2/8 to f/4, the ability to control depth of field and allow more light into the lens, even in dark environments, means you always have the option to create a pleasing out-of-focus effect in your images as you wish.

Built to brave the elements

The Panasonic Leica DG 8-18mm f/2.8-4.0 ASPH Lens is built to handle the elements, so you can shoot with peace of mind in a range of shooting locations and varied weather conditions. As well as being splash- and dust-proof, it is also freeze-proof to withstand operating in very cold climates down to negative-10-degrees. Whether you’re shooting on a windy day at the beach or want to get up close to a misty, tumbling waterfall, with this weather-sealed Panasonic lens you can confidently go for the shots you want.   

Crystal-clear images at every angle

Achieve clarity at every angle in your images with no sight of unwanted flare or ghosting thanks to Panasonic’s specially-developed Nano Surface Coating technology. By applying this ultra-thin coat to individual elements within the system, it acts as an extra barrier to control unwanted reflections cast from light sources, improve contrast and ensure true colour reproduction. You can expect crystal-clear images in all lighting conditions.
