Panasonic Corporation announces that the company is developing the world’s first* full-range F1.7 10-25mm wide zoom digital interchangeable LEICA DG VARIO-SUMMILUX lens (35mm camera equivalent: 20-50mm). Taking full advantage of the Micro Four Thirds system standard, the new LEICA DG VARIO-SUMMILUX 10-25mm / F1.7 lens realizes both a wide angle and downsizing despite its large diameter. It is the first interchangeable lens to be introduced to the market featuring a full-range F1.7 high-speed aperture, covering the wide to standard zoom range. It is also designed and developed to support video recording in addition to regular photo shooting. Integrating a clickless aperture ring that provides smooth, seamless aperture control, the new LEICA DG VARIO-SUMMILUX 10-25mm / F1.7 lens aims to be the ultimate photo/video-hybrid digital interchangeable lens.

LEICA DG lenses are designed to clear the stringent quality standards certified by LEICA to boast excellent optical performance. The new LEICA DG VARIO-SUMMILUX 10-25mm / F1.7 achieves exceptional imaging performance over the entire zoom range to provide precise description and impressive expression.

Panasonic is committed to further expand the camera and lens lineup for the Micro Four Thirds system to meet customer needs.
