Panasonic Leica DG VARIO-SUMMILUX 10-25mm f/1.7 ASPH Hands-On
ePhotoZine at The Photography Show 2019, managed to get their hands on a Panasonic Leica DG Vario-Summilux 10-25mm 1.7.
They were showing off a working version of the lens and had this to say about the new Panasonic lens.
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.
The clickless aperture certainly indicates that this lens is made for video, as clickless I find is a little bit of a pain with fast lenses and stills photography. This will certainly end up on a lot of GH5 and G9 cameras shooting 4K video. This lens has an equivalent focal range of 20-50mm.
As of now, we have not seen the full specifications of the lens, but it is expected out sometime later in 2019.
