The Panasonic 12mm f1.4 May be Perfect For Street Photography

Micro Four Thirds owners have previously only had the Olympus 12mm f2 lens offering; but now they’ve got yet another 24mm equivalent in the form of the Panasonic 12mm f1.4 lens. This is one of the company’s Leica branded pieces of glass and features a splash/dust-proof design. On the inside there are two aspherical lenses, two UED (Ultra Extra-Low Dispersion) lenses and an ED (Extra-Low Dispersion) lens working as 15 elements in 12 groups. Panasonic is also claiming better resolution through flare suppression with minimal ghosting too.

Additionally, the lens also has an aperture ring. No word on pricing yet; but knowing Panasonic don’t expect it to be cheap.

It should be something perfect for the street photographers out there.
