First hands-on images of the Panasonic 10-25mm f/1.7 lens from the Photography Show 2019.
An updated version of the Panasonic Leica DG Vario-Summilux 10-25mm f/1.7 Micro Four Thirds lens is being showcased at The Photography Show in the UK.
With a constant aperture of F1.7 throughout its 10-25mm focal range (20-50mm in 35mm terms), it is a big and heavy lens by Micro Four Thirds standards. Check out the Panasonic 10-25mm f/1.7 Lens Hands-on images.
Designed for Micro Four Thirds cameras, this lens should deliver superb image quality like the Nocticron 42.5mm f/1.2 or the 25mm f/1.4 MFT lens. According to Panasonic this fast zoom lens should replace the five fast prime lenses such as the 12-35mm, the 15mm f1.7, and the 8-18mm f2.8-4.
From ePhotozine article :
The lens extends slightly when you zoom to 25mm, and the closest focusing distance is 28cm. The lens on display is a working pre-production sample, so we were unable to take sample photo using the lens, however we can tell you that the lens works very well on a Panasonic Lumix G9, and focus was rapid. The aperture ring on the lens we used is clickless, which means it’s silent and can be smoothly adjusted, perhaps indicating that the lens is specifically suited (or rather designed) with video work in mind. The lens zooms smoothly through the zoom range, and has a 77mm filter thread.
