Panasonic LUMIX S 18mm F/1.8

The Panasonic LUMIX S 18mm F/1.8 is an ultra wide-angle lens with a 100° angle of view. This wide angle of view renders this lens ideal for a variety of applications, including landscape, astro and architectural photography. Furthermore, the shortest focal distance of 0.18 metres provides more flexibility when taking close-up shots. The lens construction consists of 13 lens elements in 12 groups, including three aspherical lenses, three ED (Extra-Low Dispersion) lenses, one UED (Ultra Extra-Low Dispersion) lens and one UHR (Ultra High refractive Index) lens. The three aspherical lenses ensure superior image performance and the three ED lenses suppress chromatic aberration. Plus, the large aperture of F/1.8 with nine aperture blades offers beautiful bokeh effects. The lens works smoothly and quietly with the camera's fast AF system, as the digital signal is exchanged between the camera and lens at up to 240 fps. In manual focus, the focal point in the non-linear mode shifts by a variable amount depending on how fast the focus ring is turned. In linear mode, the focal point shifts by a fixed amount, depending on how far the focus ring is turned. In video mode, a mechanism in the lens suppresses focus-breathing. The use of micro-step aperture control for smooth exposure adjustment enables professional quality video recording. With its compact design and weighing just 340 grams, the LUMIX S 18mm F/1.8 is extremely portable. The robust dust & splash-resistant design can even withstand harsh conditions down to -10 degrees Celsius.
