Final week, the above image leaked of the upcoming Panasonic Leica DG Vario-Summilux 25-50mm f/1.7 ASPH Micro 4 Thirds lens, first talked about through the Panasonic GH6 development announcement. Now, Nokishita (who else?) has leaked a number of the specs for the brand new lens, which is anticipated to “most likely” be introduced someday this week.
Whether or not or not we’ll really hear an official announcement this week stays to be seen, however it actually is a horny wanting lens. If the Panasonic Leica DG Vario-Summilux 10-25mm f/1.7 ASPH value of round $1,800 is something to go by, although, it positively received’t be low-cost!
Nokishita tweeted that the lens has already started showing up within the product record for abroad retailers, so I count on an announcement is shut, even when it’s not this week. However based on the specs leaked right this moment, right here’s how issues look to this point (we’ll replace this as we discover out extra to fill within the blanks)…
|Lens Mount||Micro 4 Thirds|
|Format Compatibility||Micro 4 Thirds|
|Angle of View||Unknown|
|Minimal Focus Distance||28cm @ 25mm / 31cm @ 50mm|
|Optical Design||16 Parts in 11 Teams|
|Picture Stabilization||Unknown (most likely not)|
|Filter Measurement||77 mm (Entrance)|
|Dimensions (ø x L)||87.6 x 127.6mm|
The 16 components embody one aspherical lens, three ED components and one UHR aspect. Whereas the minimal aperture isn’t included within the leaked, the smallest you’ll be able to cease down on the Panasonic Leica DG 10-25mm f/1.7 is f/16, so I count on this’ll most likely be the identical. There’s additionally no point out of lens coatings or climate sealing, however once more, I believe we will count on the identical because the 10-25mm, with the standard coatings to minimise flare and ghosting, enhance distinction and readability, and so on. together with the standard mud and splash resistance.
There’s no telling precisely what day the lens may be getting introduced, even when it does come this week, as there have been no hints or teasers from Panasonic themselves but. However even when it was scheduled for this week, with Sony pushing back their expected ZV-E10 announcement, I believe we will presumably count on the identical from Panasonic. So, possibly subsequent week.
We’ll hold you up to date as we discover out extra.
