Panasonic strengthens its micro four thirds line-up with the addition of this great Macro lens from LEICA.
The LEICA DG MACRO-ELMARIT 45mm/F2.8 ASPH./MEGA O.I.S. (35mm camera equivalent: 90mm) delivers superb image quality for the nature or scientific photographer.
The lens system comprises fourteen lenses in ten groups; including an aspherical lens and an ED lens that allow a compact design. It takes advantage of the Micro Four Thirds standard to achieve dramatic downsizing while the design and quality ensure enhanced optical performance.
Included in the lens is Panasonic's MEGA O.I.S. (Optical Image Stabiliser) which suppresses the blurring that is commonly caused by hand-shake, making it easy to shoot clear, sharply focused macro shots and to capture images successfully in dimly lit situations without using a tripod.
The lens incorporates an inner focus system of three groups of floating structure, which enables excellent resolution and contrast without changing its overall length making it more compact and taking up less space in your kit. The inclusion of a stepping motor makes the focusing action smooth and silent for both still images and video recording. For those users doing a lot of macro work, the inclusion of a switch to limit the focusing distance from 15cm to 50cm means that they do not have to use the full focal length of the lens, improving both focusing speed and battery life.
