Ideal lens for video recording

This 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.

Can I put filters on this lens?

Yes, this Panasonic lens features a 67mm thread where you can attach various filters to create a range of creative effects in both stills and video. We always recommend keeping a UV filter or clear filter attached to the lens at all times purely for protection, to add an extra barrier stop your front lens element from knocks, bumps and scratches.

Yes, this lens is designed for Micro Four Thirds mirrorless cameras. It will provide the equivalent of 16-36mm on a full frame sensor.

No, the Panasonic Leica DG 8-18mm f/2.8-4.0 ASPH Lens does not feature built-in image stabilisation technology.
