A compact and lightweight, wide-angle prime for Micro Four Thirds
With a 35mm equivalent focal length of 30mm, this wide-angle prime lens from Panasonic is a great option for your landscape, architecture, group and interiors shots of your Micro Four Thirds camera. With this much versatility the Panasonic Leica 15mm f1.7 lens is an excellent choice for anyone looking for a compact and lightweight everyday shooter.
Wide aperture range, for any shooting condition
Featuring an aperture range of f1.7 to f16, the Panasonic 15mm is well-equipped to handle any lighting condition that you may find yourself shooting in - a perfect option for available-light shooting, When shot wide-open this lens lets in plenty of light to allow you to shoot with faster shutter speeds, resulting in consistently sharp images. This also means you can explore varying depths of field within your work. Open up the aperture for sharp foregrounds and blurry backgrounds, or stop it down to create photographs where more area is sharp and in focus. This is made even easier to experiment with thanks to the manual aperture ring.
Stepping AF motor, suitable for Stills and Movies
The stepping AF motor and internal focusing system of the Panasonic 15mm f1.7 lens find it well-suited to handle all of your imaging applications, from stills to videos. Accurate focus is a breeze for this compact shooter, and it is found quietly and quickly. This level of discreteness is suitable for applications such as street photography and is perfect for video work, due to focusing not being detected by your camera’s microphone.
