LEICA DG NOCTICRON Lens Based on LEICA Camera AG's Strict Quality Standards

Certified with the name of world-renowned LEICA, the exceptional high image quality is guaranteed as well as its sophisticated design made of metal. The name "NOCTICRON" was newly defined by Leica Camera AG for this lens that achieves remarkably fast F1.2 aperture among Micro Four Thirds digital interchangeable lenses. The sophisticated metal design of this lens, including the hood, deserves to bear the prestigious LEICA name. Highly reliable metal mount is durable enough for repeated exchange of lens.

High-Speed Middle Telephoto Single Focal Length Lens with 9 Diaphragm Blades

The 42.5 mm of middle-telephoto focal distance (35 mm camera equivalent: 85 mm) is suitable for portrait with rich stereoscopic effect. Together with the high-speed aperture, you can utilize the beautiful soft focus for more impressive shots. 9 blades give the aperture a rounded shape that produces an attractively smooth effect in out-of-focus areas when shooting at larger aperture settings. It is also possible to capture landscape with natural perspective. In addition, the aperture ring allows direct, intuitive control over aperture setting.

Inner Focus System and High-speed Stepping Motor for Smooth, Silent Focusing

This lens incorporates a superior inner focus system, which enables excellent resolution and contrast from close-up to infinity. 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.
