Updated LEICA DG SUMMILUX 25mm / F1.4 II ASPH. (H-XA025): high-speed AF compatibility in splash/dust-resistant design

Panasonic has updated its LEICA DG fixed focal length lens based on the Micro Four Thirds system standard.

The new LEICA DG SUMMILUX 25mm / F1.4 II ASPH. (H-XA025) features a large F1.4 aperture, and rugged splash/dust-resistant design.[i]

The LEICA 25mm lens is compatible with the LUMIX G sensor drive at 240fps to take advantage of high-speed, high-precision auto focusing. Silent operation is achieved by the inner focus drive system.

This G Series interchangeable lens offers a versatile 50mm (35mm camera equivalent) focal length in a compact, lightweight profile. The lens system comprises 9 elements in 7 groups, with 2 aspherical lenses and 1 UHR (Ultra High Refractive) index lens. The UHR index lens and glass mold aspherical lenses achieve uniform description from the centre to the corners.

The H-XA025 will be available in Australia in October 2019 from photographic specialists and consumer electronics retailers, priced at $999 RRP. For further information, please visit www.panasonic.com.au
