Product Overview

Panasonic Leica DG Nocticron 42.5mm F1.2 ASPH OIS is a large-aperture short telephoto prime lens for Micro Four Thirds-mount. It covers the MFT image circle. Introduced by Panasonic in 2014, it has 14 elements in 11 groups.
On the lens barrel, one can find a physical aperture ring. Those who wish to focus manually can have the best of both worlds (with the usual caveats).
A telephoto prime lens, the Panasonic Leica DG Nocticron 42.5mm F1.2 ASPH OIS is well suited for portrait photography. Built-in image stabilization makes the lens easier to use handheld, and can be quite valuable for landscape works.
