Micro Four Thirds Digital Interchangeable Lens
LUMIX G VARIO 7-14mm/F4.0 ASPH.
Featuring Ultra Wide Angle in Compact Size

Interchangeable ultra wide-angle zoom lens, LUMIX G VARIO 7-14mm/F4.0 ASPH. In spite of its impressive wide-angle zoom range of 7-14mm (35mm camera equivalent; 14-28mm), the lens is surprisingly compact and lightweight for casual on-the-go use.

Taking advantage of its wide, 114-degree angle of view, users can easily fit subjects into the frame even when shooting indoors where the distance is limited. The world looks extraordinary when viewed through the new lens, allowing photos and movies to be recorded with a uniquely rich perspective.

This high-performance lens system achieves outstanding compactness by combining 16 lens elements in 12 groups, including two aspherical lenses and four ED lenses. Image resolution is high from corner-to-corner even at the wide-angle setting. It also features F4.0 brightness over the entire zoom range thanks to its large-diameter glass molded lens elements.

When mounted on LUMIX G Micro System Camera, the 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 LUMIX G VARIO 7-14mm/F4.0 ASPH. 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. The optimally designed lens hood enables use even under strong sunlight.

Rated 5 out of 5 by 3 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Amazing Lens This lens is super sharp, the colors are beautiful, and it is an especially useful zoom range for wide angles. The quality of the photographs it produces is truly first class, rivaling the German glass from my film days. It is not a heavy lens for the zoom capability it possesses. I use the optional lever from Panasonic for zooming, which does make it even easier to use. This lens has been trouble-free for me and the only negative is the inability to use filters as is.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Wow Have had this lens for about a year, still love it, have always used ultra-wides as my standard lens as it is how I view life, and this lens has become my standard. Pros of course are the very wide to super wide angle of view, sharpness and at f/4.0 throughout the whole zoom range, relatively quick for what it is, a zoom, not a prime, ultra-wide angle lens. Also like the built-in hood, very smart. Cons would be that it is large though small for what it is, could be faster like f/2.8 but then it would probably be even more expensive, do wish the lens shade hood were removable and that you could screw filters in but this would have made it more expensive and even larger. It could also have had better weather sealing but ditto, more expensive and maybe larger and heavier. Use it with my equally marvelous Panasonic GX7 which is a great camera, everything in black, very pro looking. So far my dream combo! I'm thrilled today to have read that Panasonic is continuing their partnership with Leitz and hopefully Leica lenses. My last camera was a Panasonic LX5 with the 24mm f/2.0 Leica lens that is the sharpest optic I've ever had - great combination. Good work Panasonic and Leica! September 19, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by A must have for an micro 4/3's DSLR I bought one of these n 2009 for my G1 and use it constantly. An ultrawide lens like this on a DSLR is a rarity, and not to be missed. Truly a fantastic product. June 11, 2012
