The LEICA DG not only performs smooth aperture changes to eliminate sudden jumps in exposure, its silent design also enhances audio capture in any scene. What's more, stunning AF performance records extraordinary 4K video, where precise focusing is essential.
Lens construction - 15 elements in 12 groups
- 2 Aspherical lenses
- 2 Ultra Extra-Low Dispersion
- 1 Extra-Low Dispersion lens
Aspherical (ASPH) lenses reduce size and weight to effectively prevent spherical and distortion aberration. Extra-Low Dispersion (ED) and Ultra Extra-Low Dispersion (UED) lenses correct chromatic aberration to render sharp, high-contrast images with clear colors from corner to corner.
MTF – Compensate for distortion
For lenses capable of compensating for distortion, the horizontal axis of the MTF shows the distance from the center of the corrected image.
