Constructed from durable metal, the lens has a sophisticated design to match the line-up of LUMIX G cameras, and is dust and splash proof.

Capable of smooth, silent operation, the Panasonic 12mm f1.4 ASPH Leica DG SUMMILUX Lens is also a great option for those filming 4K video.
The lens system consists of 15 elements in 12 groups, including two aspherical lenses, two UED (Ultra Extra-Low Dispersion) lenses and an ED (Extra-Low Dispersion) lens. Exceptional image quality is guaranteed, as is high resolution and minimum distortion from the centre to the corners of the image. The multi-coated lens elements also improve image quality to capture true-to-life pictures and video.
