Designed for capturing wide scenes in dynamic detail, this tough, durable lens is splash and dustproof when mounted on a compatible LUMIX G Mirrorless camera. Make the switch from bulky DSLRs. And see the difference smaller, lighter, more compact Panasonic LUMIX Mirrorless Micro Four Thirds system cameras and lenses can make for you.

  • 12mm F1.4 LEICA SUMMILUX high-performance wide angle lens for group, event, and nature photography (24mm 35mm camera lens equivalent).

  • Ideally suited for the outdoors with a splash and dustproof sealed body. (When combined with splash and dustproof LUMIX G Mirrorless camera models)
  • Suppresses “sagittal flair” that occurs in some ultra wide-angle lenses at wide-aperture settings.
  • Ultra Extra-Low Dispersion and Extra-Low Dispersion optics with stringent LEICA standards assure high image quality with high resolution and minimum distortion.
  • Compatible with 4K video capture.

* 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 colors from corner to corner.

  • 2 Aspherical lenses
  • 2 Ultra Extra-Low Dispersion
  • 1 Extra-Low Dispersion lens

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.
