A versatile wide-angle zoom, the Leica DG Vario-Elmarit 8-18mm f/2.8-4 ASPH. Lens from Panasonic is a 16-36mm equivalent lens that blends optical excellence with durable, refined physical design for Micro Four Thirds mirrorless cameras. Designed in collaboration with Leica, this lens employs a series of low dispersion and aspherical elements to realize sharp and clear imagery with controlled fringing and aberrations, and a Nano Surface Coating also helps to minimize flare and ghosting for increased contrast and color accuracy. The durable metal lens body is splash, dust, and freezeproof for use in trying environmental conditions, and a fast 240 fps autofocus drive suits both photo and video shooting in a variety of working situations.

Panasonic Leica DG Vario-Elmarit 8-18mm f/2.8... Reviews
Works great close focusing a Plus
This is a very beautiful lens with a nice focal length range. I used it on an Olympus body using starlight autofocus and got nice pinpoint stars and good sharpness and colors.
Great for Real Estate!
My GH-5 came with 12-60mm. This is much better for what I'm trying to do. $$ but, hopefully make it back with more business..
I do underwater photography for a hobby, I was using an Olympus 8mm pro, which is a nice lens. But this is even nicer, and gives me more range. Super sharp clarity.
I haven't had this lens very long so only able to take some test shots. Images wide open at 8mm were sharp with little fall off in the corners. Shots a f5.6 and f8 were very sharp so I'm keeping this lens. Bought the lens as an alternative to the Olympus 7 - 14mm Pro lens because it's lighter, less expensive, accepts screw on filters and the build quality is good.
Great wide angle zoom
Love the field of view But wish it had constant 2.8. Sharp as all the Panasonic Leica lenses
Me lika my new Leica
I am so impressed with the smoothness, sharpness and clarity of my new Leica 18-80 mm lens. I purchased it for my canyon trip out west and she preformed beautifully..
