Panasonic continues to bolster Micro Four Thirds with the release of the Leica DG Vario-Summilux 10-25mm f/1.7 ASPH. Lens. This is a world’s-first f/1.7 zoom, has a 20-50mm equivalent range, and is optimized for stills and video. Laying claim to the title of world’s-first full-range f/1.7 zoom, this spectacular lens should be very appealing to many, especially with its versatile 20-50mm equivalent range. Also, the lens has large control rings, including a de-clicked aperture ring for smooth iris pulls during video recording.
Ensuring maximum quality, the lens uses three aspherical lenses and four Extra-low Dispersion (ED) elements to minimize aberrations and distortion. Also, the lens has a fast 240 fps internal-focus autofocus system that will help photographers and videographers lock onto their subjects with ease. Photographers will appreciate that the dust- and splash-resistant lens can replace multiple lenses and make travel easier.

For video, the lens has been optimized in many key ways. A physical aperture control ring that is de-clicked and has a micro-step drive system will create smooth brightness transitions, even in the middle of a take. It also has been designed to reduce focus breathing and minimize image shift when performing zooms. Additionally, it has a focus clutch for quickly switching between auto and manual focus during shooting. This combination of features makes the lens a great option for both photographers and videographers.
