The LEICA DG MACRO-ELMARIT 45mm / F2.8 ASPH. / MEGA O.I.S. boasts a superb image quality with minimum distortion, chromatic aberrations as well as ghosts and flares that passes a stringent Leica standard to goes beyond their expectations. This lens system uses both an aspherical lens and an ED lens in its 14 lenses in 10 groups to realise outstanding compactness, taking advantage of the Micro Four Thirds standard to achieve dramatic downsizing while minimizing distortion and chromatic aberration.
Panasonic's MEGA O.I.S. (Optical Image Stabiliser) suppresses the blurring that is commonly caused by hand-shake, making it easy to shoot clear shots for sharply focused macro shot or in dimly lit places without using a tripod.
It incorporates an inner focus direct-drive linear motor with 3 groups of floating structure for focusing, which enables excellent resolution and contrast without changing its overall length from full life-size magnification to infinity. The inclusion of stepping motor makes the focusing action smooth and quiet* for use in both photo and movie recording (* Some noise may be recorded in motion picture mode, subject to recording environment). The closest focusing distance can be instantly changed to 15 cm or 50 cm (0.5 ft to 1.64 ft) with the switch on the lens barrel according to the shooting opportunity.
When mounted on the LUMIX G Micro System Camera, this lens allows use of the advanced contrast AF system, which includes a Face Recognition function, for more convenient, more enjoyable shooting.
Seven blades give the aperture a rounded shape that produces an attractively smooth effect in out-of-focus areas when shooting at larger aperture settings. The LEICA DG MACRO-ELMARIT 45mm / F2.8 ASPH. / MEGA O.I.S. lens also features a highly reliable metal mount, and uses multi-coated lens elements that minimize ghosts and flare to further enhance its optical performance.

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.
Mega O.I.S. - sharp results
Capture scenes carefree or at the spur of the moment. The optical image stabilisation (O.I.S.) technology built directly into the lens esures your photos will look great, with sharp blur--free contours across the entire picture.
That's becuase this technology immediatley compensates the kind of minor movements and vibrations that can so easily occur in photography. But you won't notice any of this - all you'll see are wonderfully crisp images.
14 elements in 10 groups
Aspherical (ASPH) lenses reduce size and weight, effectively preventing spherical and distortion aberration.
Extra-Low Dispersion (ED) lenses correct chromatic aberration rendering sharp, high-contrast imaes with clear colours from corner to corner.
