Product Description

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

Fisheye lens for unique images with intriguing deformation effects

This fisheye lens with equisolid angle projection lets you create fascinating images with a 180o diagonal angle of view and intriguing deformation effects.  Featuring ten elements in nine groups, including one ED lens, this lens system corrects chromatic aberration from magnification and other sources, delivering superb image rendering.

The fisheye lens also features the Inner Focus system, as well as a virtually silent single lens drive system that won’t interfere with the sound you are recording when using it to shoot HD movies.

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

From processing to assembly, inspection and packaging, every lens is processed in ‘clean rooms’, to rigorous environmental standards at Panasonic’s Yamagata plant in Japan.
In addition, objective numerical evaluations are made using the UA3P (ultra-accurate 3D Profilometer), a Panasonic innovation used by many lens manufacturers today for its 1/10,000 mm measurement accuracy. The measurement criteria are used to determine the presence of flaring, the colour of coatings, operational feel of the focus ring and other factors which make Panasonic lenses the standard for worldwide accuracy and image quality.
 

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

Lumix G/LEICA DG lenses achieve a contrast AF system that excels in speed and accuracy by incorporating a unique ‘stepping’ motor in the drive system, which does away with relay gears and cams. Auto focus is swift and accurate, and some models are able to further reduce drive noise, ideal when recording movies with sound.
The number of mount signal contacts has been increased from the nine used in conventional Four Thirds system cameras to 11, so the transfer of information between lens and camera is noticeably faster, achieving a contrast AF system that excels in speed and accuracy.
 

Extra-low dispersion lenses

Extra-low dispersion (ED) lens corrects longitudinal chromatic aberration in the zoom setting, and chromatic difference of magnification at the wide angle setting. The result is greatly reduced contrast degradation and colour bleeding, with both telephoto and wide-angle zoom lenses delivering sharp, high-contrast images with clear colours from corner to corner.
