The LEICA DG SUMMILUX 15 mm / F1.7 ASPH. allows you to capture supreme snapshots with beautiful defocus features produced by F1.7 high speed. Certified with the name of world-renowned LEICA, exceptionally high image quality is guaranteed. The new lens system is comprised of 9 elements in 7 groups with 3 aspherical lenses, which suppress spherical aberration and distortion, in a very compact lens unit.
Incorporating a stepping motor makes the focusing action of this lens capable of smooth, silent operation for both photo and video recording. Compared to Phase Difference AF, Contrast AF boasts higher accuracy especially when shooting with a bright lens that has a small F value. This lens takes full advantage of the camera's high-speed AF.
The aperture ring allows for easy, intuitive operation.
The sophisticated metal design, including the hood, deserves to bear the prestigious LEICA name. The metal mount is durable enough for repeated lens exchanges.
Panasonic's Nano Surface Coating technology minimizes reflection at the entire visual light range (380 nm - 780 nm) by applying the extra-low refractive index coating with nano-sized structure on the surface of the lens. It results in super clear pictures with dramatic reduction of ghost and flare.
