Panasonic Leica 45mm f/2.8 DG OIS Macro

Available September 5, 2014

The Panasonic Leica DG Macro Elmarit 45mm f/2.8 OIS is a high quality macro lens designed for Micro 4/3 cameras and camcorders. Key features include:

  • Short Tele Macro. With a focal length equivalent to 90mm, the Panasonic Leica 45mm f/2.8 serves as a great option for both macro and portrait use.
  • True Macro. The 1:1 macro reproduction gives you true macro ability. The 6" minimum focus distance enables ultra-close use.
  • Built-In Stabilizer. The in-lens Mega OIS stabilizer helps to prevent camera shake. However, when shoot 1:1 macro you’ll absolutely want to be locked down on a tripod.

This lens is fantastic. It’s easily as good as the “big boys” macro lenses. It’s obviously designed to be a macro lens; however, when you hit the focus limit switch, you get a stabilized 90mm equivalent that is beautiful as a mid-range tele. While it doesn’t have a blazing-fast aperture, the addition of a built-in stabilizer makes very worthwhile for less-than-perfect lighting conditions.
