F2.0 LEICA DC VARIO-SUMMICRON Lens
The LF1 is equipped with a new 28mm wide angle LEICA DC VARIO-SUMMICRON lens with 7.1x optical zoom (35mm camera equivalent: 28-200mm). This superb lens features F2.0 high speed, which boasts approximately twice the speed of an F2.8 lens. The extraordinarily rich amount of light allows not only higher shutter speed to capture stunningly clear, sharp, blur-free images in low lighting, but also delivers impressive expression to the image by reproducing exquisite gradation and mellow defocus.
The super-high-quality of this lens minimizes distortion at the wide end, so users can get stunning, true-to-life images with outstanding resolution and detail.
1/1.7 inch 12.1 megapixel
The LF1 integrates a large 1/1.7-inch, 12.1-megapixel High Sensitivity MOS Sensor which is larger in size than standard digital compact cameras.

The result is a high resolution image with stunning clarity not only in high sensitivity recording, but also in low ISO settings reproducing rich gradation with the exquisitely wide dynamic range, even when there is a great deal of contrast in the subject.
Manual control is easy thanks to the Control Ring, which enables direct, intuitive control over frequently-used functions and settings – zoom, aperture, shutter speed, ISO sensitivity and filters of Creative Control / Creative Panorama.
It is easy to shoot a photo with great composition just by choosing the most suitable pattern of composition, from Rule of Thirds Offset, Diagonal Lines, Tunnel, to Radiation1, Radiation2 and S-shape, and framing the subjects along the guided lines. Well composed images can look refined with stunning perspectives.
