Precision beyond compare

Redefining picture quality - with the LEICA DG NOCTICRON lens. The popular 42.5mm of middle-telephoto focal distance (35mm camera equivalent: 85mm) is suitable for portraits with rich depth - or any other kind of subject and shooting situation. This LEICA lens features an outstanding aperture of F1.2, which enables you to utilise the beautiful soft focus for more impressive, creative shots.

LEICA DG Lens – ultimate optics

Opt for a LEICA DG lens and get the ultimate in optical quality and performance. They naturally meet the strict quality standards set by Leica Camera AG.

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.

POWER O.I.S. – ultra-sharp photos

Capture scenes carefree or at the spur of the moment. The optical image stabilisation (O.I.S.) technology built directly into the lens ensures your photos will look great, with sharp blur-free contours across the entire picture.

Taking highly popular MEGA O.I.S. further, this advanced technology immediately compensates even large camera shake and vibrations that may occur in photography. So you can capture true-to-life scenes without the need for a tripod. In the end, you’ll enjoy wonderfully crisp images.

Nano Surface Coating – clarity from all angles

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.

HD Video Support – perfect video-recording

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.

CameraLabs: Panasonic Leica 42.5mm f1.2 review by Gordon Laing

This is a lens I'd be very happy using at its maximum aperture, confident in its ability to capture fine details across the frame, not just in the middle as you'd normally expect for a bright aperture prime.
