Leica D Vario-Elmarit 14-50mm Lens
Panasonic's first digital SLR camera with interchangeable lens has been announced on the PMA. Panasonic is pleased to announce the development of our first interchangeable-lens digital SLR camera, the Panasonic Lumix DMC-L1. State-of-the-art digital and optical technologies developed for our compact digital cameras have been crystallized to make Lumix a top camera brand while helping establish a new photographic culture for the digital age. Panasonic is drawing on these leading technologies, and the emotional excitement of true-to-life photographic images, as we announced in our entry to the digital SLR market in 2005. The Panasonic L1 being introduced today is an entirely new kind of digital SLR camera.
Leica D Vario-Elmarit 14-50mm Lens
Leica D Vario-Elmarit 14-50mm lens - The partnership between Leica and Panasonic has resulted in rigorous quality standards for the development and manufacturing of this interchangeable lens, so that the technology and expertise of Leica Camera and Panasonic will be integrated at their highest levels. Both Panasonic and Leica Camera AG are confident that the results of their cooperative efforts will be successful and highly evaluated by customers.
Leica D Lens - Vario-Elmarit - The Leica D Vario-Elmarit lens comprises 16 elements in 12 groups, including two aspherical lenses. It provides high definition image rendering that conveys even the finest details and nuances. It minimizes distortion and peripheral vignetting at the wide end. And to draw the best optical performance out of this compact lens, a large-diameter aspherical glass molded lens is also incorporated. With the Leica D Vario-Elmarit, users can expe-rience the unique performance of Leica optical technology in the world of digital photography.
Panasonic Lumix DMC-L1 - Optical Image Stabilization - For use in Panasonic's Lumix digital cameras, The Leica D Vario-Elmarit 14-50mm/F2.8-3.5 ASPH lens incorporates Mega O.I.S. Developed entirely by Panasonic, this advanced optical image stabilization system makes it possible - without using a tripod - to capture clear, beautiful images even in macro shooting or low-lit situations, giving users more shooting flexibility. And to assure precise control over the Mega O.I.S., the Venus Engine is integrated into the lens unit. Together with the full-time Live View function, these two important features make the Panasonic Lumix DMC-L1 (also being introduced) a digital SLR camera that offers an entirely new kind of photographic experience.
Leica D Vario-Elmarit Interchangeable Lens - To improve operating ease, there is an aperture ring in addition to the focus ring and zoom ring, giving users more intuitive aperture adjustment. Another distinctive L1 feature is the shutter speed dial on the camera body. Thanks to features like these, the L1 offers a more comfortable and enjoyable shooting experience than conventional digital SLR cameras. The Leica D Vario-Elmarit 14-50mm F2.8-3.5 ASPH is not simply a standard interchangeable lens for digital SLR cameras, but rather an exclusive one with features such as Mega O.I.S. and an aperture ring.
