Product Description

Lumix G Fisheye 8mm/F3.5 Micro 4/3rds Interchangeable lens

A superior macro lens brings tiny worlds into view

Designed and manufactured to meet Leica’s stringent performance standards, this high-quality macro lens minimises distortion, ghosts, flaring and decreased peripheral resolution. 

With 14 elements in ten groups, including one aspherical lens and one ED lens, it provides stable contrast and high resolution all the way from 1.1 macro (3.5mm camera equivalent:  2x) to infinity. 

By using a floating inner focus system that shifts three groups of lenses, the elaborate focusing that’s so essential to a macro lens is now faster and quieter.  Also featured is a Mega O.I.S, which fights the blurring caused by hands-shake to help you capture clear, sharp images from macro and medium-telephoto portraits to wide landscapes and long telephoto shots.

For the lenses distortion compensation available, the horizontal axis of MTF is the distance from the center, which is compensated accordingly.

Lenses manufactured with uncompromising devotion to high image quality

The production process for Lumix G and LEICA DG lenses is conducted in ‘clean rooms’ to rigorous environmental standards. Now acclaimed worldwide, our UA3P Ultra-Accurate 3D Profilometer, with its measurement accuracy of 1/10,000mm, gives objective numerical evaluations and detects flaring, colour coatings and the ‘feel’ of the focus ring.
 

An original lens-drive motor for high-precision high-speed contrast AF

Lumix G and Leica DG lenses incorporate a unique ‘stepping motor’ with a screw unit in the motor shaft that moves the focus lens directly, without relay gears or cams. Information transfers from lens to camera faster, making auto focus swift and accurate with reduced drive noise for better movie recording.
 

MEGA O.I.S (Optical Image Stabiliser)

Designed to compensate for hands-shake ‘blur’, the MEGA O.I.S’s internal LSI compensates by processing the output of the gyrosensors at approximately 4,000 times a second. What you see in the Live View Finder or LCD image is what you get in the shot (especially effective when using a zoom lens).
