The LEICA DG MACRO-ELMARIT 45mm F2.8 ASPH. MEGA O.I.S. boasts a superb image quality with minimum distortion, chromatic aberrations as well as ghosts and flares that passes a stringent Leica standard to goes beyond their expectations. This lens system uses both an aspherical lens and an ED lens in its 14 lenses in 10 groups to realize outstanding compactness, taking advantage of the Micro Four Thirds standard to achieve dramatic downsizing while minimizing distortion and chromatic aberration.

Panasonic's MEGA O.I.S. (Optical Image Stabilizer) suppresses the blurring that is commonly caused by hand-shake, making it easy to shoot clear shots for sharply focused macro shot or in dimly lit places without using a tripod.

It incorporates an inner focus direct-drive linear motor with 3 groups of floating structure for focusing, which enables excellent resolution and contrast without changing its overall length from full life-size magnification to infinity. The inclusion of stepping motor makes the focusing action smooth and silent for use in both photo and movie recording. The closest focusing distance can be instantly changed to 15 cm or 50 cm (0.5 ft to 1.64 ft) with the switch on the lens barrel according to the shooting opportunity.

When mounted on the LUMIX G Micro System Camera, this lens allows use of the advanced contrast AF system, which includes a Face Recognition function, for more convenient, more enjoyable shooting.

Seven blades give the aperture a rounded shape that produces an attractively smooth effect in out-of-focus areas when shooting at larger aperture settings. The LEICA DG MACRO-ELMARIT 45mm / F2.8 ASPH. / MEGA O.I.S. lens also features a highly reliable metal mount, and uses multi-coated lens elements that minimize ghosts and flare to further enhance its optical performance

In the summary of the Panasonic-Leica DG MACRO-ELMARIT 45 mm f/2.8 ASPH. MEGA O.I.S. it would be difficult not to take into account the price, especially as we deal here with one of the most expensive lenses of the Micro 4/3 system.

DP Review

The Leica DG Macro-Elmarit 45mm F2.8 ASPH is the first true macro lens for Micro Four Thirds, and sees Panasonic 'rounding off' its initial lens line to provide users with examples of all of the most popular types (standard and telephoto kit zooms, wideangle zoom, superzoom, fast normal prime and...

I have used this macro lens on my Olympus pen epl-5 for under water use. Auto Focus is excellent and the pictures are pin sharp. I also use it on an Olympus E-M5 mark 2 for nature close ups, again focus is quick and results are good.

Not only is the lens an excellent macro lens but gives quality images when used for street scenes and landscapes. It is an excellent all round performer and I am tending to keep it on the camera (GX7) most of the time as my first preference.

I dreamed of this lens for a long time to go with my G1, I was put off by the high price tag. After saving hard I decided to treat myself to this lens and I am glad I did as I am having a lot of fun using it both on auto and manual focus when photographing flowers and butterflies etc.

Sharpest lens I have for the Panasonic GF1. A little expensive but the results make it worthwhile. The macro setting is exquisite and being 90mm in Micro 4/3rds format it is equally as good for portraits! The best Micro 4/3rds lens I have.
