Lens features a variety of optical upgrades for photo and video applications alike. The most well-rounded standard zoom to date, this compact and versatile lens provides a convenient 24-70mm full-frame equivalent focal length range for covering wide-angle to portrait-length perspectives. A bright f/2.8 constant aperture allows users to capture images in dim lighting conditions and with a shallow depth of field, and a unique Nano Crystal Coating further reduces less flare and ghosting when shooting under strong light sources. The lens features a POWER Optical Image Stabilizer to minimize the appearance of camera shake, and this O.I.S. system is also compatible with Dual I.S. for enhanced stabilization performance during handheld shooting.

  • A redesigned replacement of the Lumix G X Vario 12-35mm f/2.8 II ASPH. POWER O.I.S. lens, this professional-quality zoom has passed the stringent optical standards of Leica.
  • Standard zoom for Micro Four Thirds mirrorless cameras, this compact and lightweight lens provides a 24-70mm full-frame equivalent focal length range.
  • Bright f/2.8 constant maximum aperture allows users to capture images in dim lighting conditions and with a shallow depth of field.
  • Updated Nano Crystal Coating further reduces less flare and ghosting when shooting under strong light sources.
  • Four aspherical elements, one ultra extra-low dispersion element, and one ultra high refractive index element all contribute to minimizing chromatic and spherical aberrations in order to produce a higher degree of clarity, sharpness, and color accuracy.
  • POWER Optical Image Stabilizer minimizes the appearance of camera shake for sharper handheld shooting while also supporting the Dual I.S. function for increased stabilization performance.
  • Improved close-up performance provides a minimum focusing distance of 5.9" at focal lengths of 12-17mm. Minimum focusing distance of 9.8" at focal lengths of 18-35mm.
  • Updated with a series of attributes that appeal to video shooters' needs, this lens minimizes focus breathing to prevent unwanted movements and angle of view variations for greater compositional accuracy during recording.
  • Micro-step aperture control provides for smooth exposure changes during video recording.
  • Splash, dust, and freezeproof design benefits working in inclement weather conditions.
  • Rounded seven-blade diaphragm contributes to a smooth and pleasing bokeh quality.
