The f1.2 high speed LEICA DG Nocticron lens is deal for portrait photography with rich stereoscopic effect. Together with the high-speed aperture, you can utilise the beautiful soft focus for more impressive, creative shots. 9 blades give the aperture a rounded shape that produces a smooth effect in out-of-focus areas when shooting at larger aperture settings
High-Precision, High-Speed AF – The inclusion of newly developed stepping motor makes the focusing action smooth and silent for use in both photo and video recording. When mounted on the Lumix G cameras, you can take advantage of the high-precision, high-speed Contrast AF system
Power O.I.S. (Optical Image Stabiliser) – Due to the shallow depth of field which is unique to the large aperture lens, even a slight handshake causes out-of-focus shots. However, the Power O.I.S. which is newly integrated in this lens effectively compensates for not only small, fast movement but also large, slow movement making it easy to shoot super clear shots even when shooiting in low-lit situations such night time or indoors
Nano Surface Coating – With Panasonic's Nano Surface technology the reflection is dramatically minimised at entire visual light range by applying the extra-low refractive index coating with nano-sized structure on the surface of the lens. It results in the super clear picture with dramatic reduction of ghost and flare
Aperture Ring Control – The aperture ring on the lens barrel allows direct, intuitive control over the aperture setting
Metal Finish Design – The sophisticated metal design, including the hood, deserves to bear the prestigious LEICA name. Highly reliable metal mount in durable enough for repeated exchange of lens.
