    Key Features:

    • Professional high-quality LEICA DG VARIO-ELMARIT optics with Panasonic’s Nano Surface Coating. (1 ASPH. ED / 3 ASPH. 2 ED / 1 UHR)
    • 2.25X optical wide angle zoom 8-18mm F2.8-4.0 (67mm lens filter thread)
    • Durability metal body for various weather conditions (Splash proof / Dustproof / -10C Freeze proof)
    • Fast focus tracking via a 240 fps AF drive
    • Micro Four Thirds compactness - Overall length approx.. 88mm, approx. weight 315g


    • LEICA Wide Angle Zoom
      Designed to shine even under adverse weather conditions, this wide angle combines nimble mobility with legendary LEICA Lens performance. From ultra-wide-angle 8mm landscapes through 18mm in close-in spaces, the corner-to-corner clarity of this LEICA DG lens expresses every detail, even in low light [F2.8-4.0]. And it accommodates 67mm filters for greater creativity in both photos and videos.
    • The Ultimate in Optics
      With a LEICA DG Lens you shoot with the ultimate in optical quality and performance. Each lens meets and exceeds the strict quality standards set by Leica Camera AG. Thanks to the sophisticated, pro-level design of these lenses, distortion is minimized to render brilliant, edge-to-edge clarity and detail in all your images.
    • Defy the Elements
      With its splash/dust/freezeproof construction, this durable lens is also tough enough to withstand heavy field use in nearly any weather or location. The system inside is protected from sand, rain and temperature. Now there's nothing holding you back from capturing the creative nature, landscape and other shots you want.
    • Video Support
      With the H-E08018 lens you will experience smooth aperture changes without sudden jumps in exposure during video capture, its silent design delivers enhanced audio capture in any scene. Just as reliably, its stunning AF performance records excellent 4K video, where precise focusing is especially essential.
    • Nano Coatings
      Reduce unwanted ghosting and flaring for clarity with the Panasonic’s Nano Surface Coating. Developed by Panasonic, this ultra-thin coating reduces bothersome reflections across the entire light spectrum. The result: Crystal-clear pictures even when shooting a light source in the dark.
    • The Inside Story
      The exceptional H-E08018 lens comprises 15 elements in 10 groups:
      • aspherical Extra-Low Dispersion lens
      • aspherical lenses
      • Extra-Low Dispersion lenses
      • Ultra High Refractive Index lens
      The Aspherical (ASPH) Extra-Low Dispersion (ED) lens helps reduce size and weight, for high-resolution, high-contrast images from corner to corner. ASPH lenses also reduce size and weight, effectively preventing spherical and distortion aberration.
      ED lenses correct chromatic aberration rendering sharp, high-contrast images with clear colors from corner to corner.
      An Ultra-High Refractive Index (UHR) lens improves optical performance, reduces size and weight and achieves uniform image quality from the center to the edges of the image.
    • MTF Chart
      For lenses capable of compensating for distortion, the horizontal axis of the MTF
      (Modulation Transfer Function) shows the distance from the center of the corrected image.
