A wider view capturing dynamic detail – 12mm / f1.4
The 12mm LEICA DG lens with f1.4 aperture was created for shooting landscapes in dynamic detail and resolution. It intricately renders each point of light with crisp clarity, making it ideal for capturing individual stars and tiny lights. The lens mount, barrel and hood are constructed of metal to provide a sophisticated, durable design to enhance the joy of photography for enthusiasts and professionals.
LEICA DG Lens – The ultimate in optics
With a LEICA DG lens, photographers get the ultimate in optical quality and performance. Each lens meets and exceeds the strict quality standards set by Leica Camera AG. Your assurance brilliant image clarity from center to edges with distortions suppressed to enable sharp, precise picture renderings.
Splash / Dustproof – Brave the elements
Take on the elements in virtually any location or weather condition. The splash/dustproof construction* is tough enough to withstand heavy field use. And it's designed to shield and protect the inner lens system from sand, rain and more. (*Splash/dustproof with compatible LUMIX cameras only).
4K-Enabled video capture
The LEICA DG not only performs smooth aperture changes to eliminate sudden jumps in exposure, its silent design also enhances audio capture in any scene. What’s more, stunning AF performance records extraordinary 4K video, where precise focusing is essential.
Lens construction - 15 elements in 12 groups
Aspherical (ASPH) lenses reduce size and weight to effectively prevent spherical and distortion aberration. Extra-Low Dispersion (ED) and Ultra Extra-Low Dispersion (UED) lenses correct chromatic aberration to render sharp, high-contrast images with clear colours from corner to corner.
MTF – Compensate for distortion
For lenses capable of compensating for distortion, the horizontal axis of the MTF shows the distance from the center of the corrected image.
