Thanks to the sophisticated design of these lenses, you will enjoy brilliant clarity all the way to the edges of your photos. At the same time, distortions of all kind are prevented which may occur with wide-angle photography to enable precise, sharp picture rendering. This means you have the ideal tool for pro-level images in the palm of your hand.
Put an end to unwanted ghosting and flaring – the Nano Surface Coating has been applied to lenses within the system. This special, ultra-thin coating was developed originally by Panasonic to reduce bothersome reflections across the entire light spectrum. The result: crystal-clear pictures even if you’re photographing a light source in the dark.
With HD video support any user has everything they need for recording with their LUMIX camera. Not only does it perform smooth aperture changes so there are no sudden jumps in exposure, it also boasts a silent design for enhanced capture of the scene’s audio. What’s more, it offers excellent tracking performance – so you won’t miss a moment of the action.

Aspherical (ASPH) lenses reduce size and weight, effectively preventing spherical and distortion aberration.
For lenses that are capable of compensating distortion, the horizontal axis of the MTF shows the distance from the center of the corrected image.

"Overall, the 15mm is an interesting addition to the Micro Four Thirds system, offering a wider alternative to the Olympus 17mm f/1.8."
