Product Description

Manufacturer's Description

In spite of its impressive 2x wide-angle zoom range of 7-14mm (35mm equivalent; 14-28mm), this lens is surprisingly compact and lightweight. This high-performance lens system achieves outstanding compactness, edge to edge resolution and minimum distortion by combining 16 lens elements in 12 groups, including 2 aspherical lenses and 4 ED lenses. This combination of large-diameter lens elements also offers a maximum aperture setting of f4 over the entire zoom range.

Its wide 75 to 114-degree angle of view makes this lens ideal when shooting indoors (where distances can be limiting) or for capturing landscapes. The world looks extraordinary when viewed through this lens, allowing photos and movies* to be recorded with a uniquely rich perspective.

When mounted on a Lumix G Micro System camera, this lens allows use of the advanced contrast AF system, which includes an AF Tracking and a Face Recognition function*, for more convenient, more enjoyable shooting.

A total of 7 blades provide a circular aperture diaphragm that produces a pleasant smoothness in out-of-focus areas when shooting at larger aperture settings. A durable metal lens mount ensures long operating life and positive attachment to the camera body.

Multi-coated lens elements minimize ghosting and flare to further enhance optical performance. The lens hood is optimally designed to enable use even under strong sunlight.

The Micro Four Thirds System standard made it possible to achieve a compact size and light weight body. Despite its extremely compact size, the superb optical performance of this lens brings out the full capabilities of the 4/3-type image sensor.

*For the DMC-GH1 only.

    In comparison with some of the other Micro Four-Thirds lenses on the market [well, most of them], this Ultra-Wide Angle [UWA] from Panasonic shares the expensive end of the spectrum, in company with the likes of the Voigtlander 25mm f0.95. Cat in stand the comparison?

    Well yes, it can. Simple to use, well balanced in terms of weight, this lens is something of a delight. It's 7-14mm range yields 14-28mm in 35mm equivalent focal lengths, but is surprisingly accommodating... Try it with architecture and use the image-distorting power of the optics to artistic effect, or venture outdoors for a wide sky or dramatic landscape. Either way, this lens will not disappoint. An offering of f4.0 throughout the range makes this it relatively fast for this class of lens, but in practice you will find it works best stopped down a bit further, since you need a little more depth of field to get the best results from the superbly wide and wacky focal lengths.

    Obviously you're going to get image distortion [it's what you're paying for], but you will also find impressive edge-to-edge sharpness, great tonal and contrast, along with crisp, clear colour reproduction.

    My previous foray into such optics came courtesy of a Sigma 12-24mm Canon-mount lens for my digital SLR, and it's fair to say that the Panasonic trounces it in every respect: size, weight, optical quality, auto-focus precision, speed of use, the works. I've yet to give mine the workout it deserves, but am already looking forward to a hiking trip to the Sierra Nevada range, with a GX1, a tripod and this little masterpiece...

    If you enjoy your photography and are looking for something that will challenge you to find new angles, new perspectives, new ways of looking at your subject, then this lens will not disappoint.

    Although on the large side of many of the lenses in the micro four thirds system, this fantastic lens offers a new 'angle' on photography to almost anyone moving to it. In the words of another reviewer, this is the lens that I switched to micro four thirds for (from Nikon).

    The build quality and autofocus are great - the lens isn't light but has a good solid feel and the zoom ring is well balanced. On my GH2 it is a perfect size but I don't think it would be completely out of place on the (much smaller) GF1/2 or the Olympus PENs.

    It takes some getting used to in order to make the most of the lens' uniquely wide capabilities - I was genuinely astonished at just 'how' wide it is. However, be prepared to experiment, and/or look around for some other work done with it and similar UWA (Ultra Wide Angle) lenses, and you'll very rapidly get some great shots.

    The maximum aperture of f/4 might seem un-ideal for such a pricey lens but is more than sufficient over this wide an image to get sufficiently shallow depth of field - in any event it's probably not something you'll be aiming for in most UWA pictures.

    Some have suggested that image stabilisation would have been ideal, but with such a wide field of view I don't see it helping significantly - for the vast majority of uses blurring will never become apparent and hence it's better to keep the weight and complexity down.

    All in all, a fantastic lens and, despite its price, worth every penny of it.

    Panasonic has produced a remarkable ultrawide angle lens, but at quite a cost. For ultrawide photography nothing else matches it in the M43 format. Incredibly wide, amazingly sharp, remarkably compact and beautifully made. Compared to the better value Olympus 9-18mm it's noticeably wider, better built, and faster (f4 at all focal lengths). Highly recommended - if you can stomach the premium price.

    I have had this lens for over a year now and have taken 100s of photos with it. It really is impressive. I take a lot of interior shots using a bounce flash and the results are extremely good, very sharp and very wide! Where barrel distortion is evident when at the edge of the frame and close up (not normally a problem), this can be easily corrected using Photoshop or in my case Photoshop Elements 7.

    This is the lens I bought a Micro Four Thirds camera for. I already have equivalent lenses for my Nikon D3 and Oly E3 systems, but they are huge, and this is tiny (because it can extend backwards into where the mirror box would be on a normal SLR). The quality is good, though not quite as good as the other two, and the only winge is that it ought to be not only smaller but also cheaper to make. Panasonic must be making a packet on this one. Still, if you need a really compact camera system with an ultra wide field of view (and I do), here's the lens. I love it!
