The Leica DG Vario Elmarit 8-18mm f2.8-4 is an ultra wide angle zoom for the Micro Four Thirds system. Mounted on a Panasonic or Olympus mirrorless body, it delivers equivalent coverage of 16-36mm, providing a flexible range from modest to ultra-wide. The Leica 8-18mm employs a variable focal ratio, starting at a maximum of f2.8 at 8mm or f4 at 18mm.
The durable metal lens body is splash, dust, and freezeproof for use in trying environmental conditions.
One aspherical ED element, three aspherical elements, two extra-low dispersion elements, and one ultra high-refractive index element all combine to suppress color fringing, chromatic aberrations, and spherical aberrations for high clarity, sharpness, and color accuracy.
The Leica 8-18mm allows you to use a compact but serious filter system at the widest focal lengths without compromise.
The minimum aperture of the Leica 8-18mm allows one to enjoy diffraction effects that transform point sources of light into spiked shapes.
