    LEICA Wide Angle Zoom

    Designed to shine even under adverse weather conditions, this wide angle combines nimble mobility with legendary LEICA Lens performance. From ultra-wide-angle 8mm landscapes through 18mm in close-in spaces, the corner-to-corner clarity of this LEICA DG lens expresses every detail, even in low light [F2.8-4.0]. And it accommodates 67mm filters for greater creativity in both photos and videos.

    The Ultimate in Optics

    With a LEICA DG Lens you shoot with the ultimate in optical quality and performance. Each lens meets and exceeds the strict quality standards set by Leica Camera AG. Thanks to the sophisticated, pro-level design of these lenses, distortion is minimized to render brilliant, edge-to-edge clarity and detail in all your images.

    Defy the Elements

    With its splash/dust/freezeproof construction, this durable lens is also tough enough to withstand heavy field use in nearly any weather or location. The system inside is protected from sand, rain and temperature. Now there's nothing holding you back from capturing the creative nature, landscape and other shots you want.

    Video Support

    With the H-E08018 lens you will experience smooth aperture changes without sudden jumps in exposure during video capture, its silent design delivers enhanced audio capture in any scene. Just as reliably, its stunning AF performance records excellent 4K video, where precise focusing is especially essential.

    Nano Coatings

    Reduce unwanted ghosting and flaring for clarity with the Panasonic's Nano Surface Coating. Developed by Panasonic, this ultra-thin coating reduces bothersome reflections across the entire light spectrum. The result: Crystal-clear pictures even when shooting a light source in the dark.

    The Inside Story

    The exceptional H-E08018 lens comprises 15 elements in 10 groups:

    • Aspherical Extra-Low Dispersion lens
    • Aspherical lenses
    • Extra-Low Dispersion lenses
    • Ultra High Refractive Index lens

    The Aspherical (ASPH) Extra-Low Dispersion (ED) lens helps reduce size and weight, for high-resolution, high-contrast images from corner to corner. ASPH lenses also reduce size and weight, effectively preventing spherical and distortion aberration.

    ED lenses correct chromatic aberration rendering sharp, high-contrast images with clear colors from corner to corner.

    An Ultra-High Refractive Index (UHR) lens improves optical performance, reduces size and weight and achieves uniform image quality from the center to the edges of the image.

    MTF Chart

    For lenses capable of compensating for distortion, the horizontal axis of the MTF

    (Modulation Transfer Function) shows the distance from the center of the corrected image.
