Panasonic introduces a Leica D large-diameter telephoto zoom lens. The new Leica D Vario-Elmar 14-150mm F3.5-5.6 ASPH. Mega O.I.S., lens offers an exceptionally long zoom range of 14-150mm (35mm equivalent: 28-300mm) and complies with the Four Thirds System to assure wide compatibility with other camera models. It will be available in the market from around November 2007. The new lens provides a considerably longer telephoto range than the previously released Leica D Vario-Elmarit 14-50mm F2.8-3.5 ASPH. Mega O.I.S. lens, yet is just as compact and lightweight. This impressive downsizing is the result of incorporating four aspherical lenses in the unit.

The aspherical lenses also improve optical performance by minimizing distortion, even at the 28mm wide end. The new Leica D Vario-Elmar lens incorporates Panasonic’s Mega O.I.S. optical image stabilizer, which makes it easy to shoot super-telephoto shots without using a tripod. When the lens is mounted on the newly announced Lumix DMC-L10 digital SLR camera, the Lumix DMC-L1 or the Leica DIGILUX 3, you can use the aperture ring provided and enjoy easy, intuitive shooting. The lens also supports the contrast AF system, which is newly implemented in the DMC-L10.
