Lumix S 18mm f/1.8 Lens

The Lumix S 18mm f/1.8 from Panasonic is a sleek and compact ultra-wide-angle prime lens designed for full-frame L-mount mirrorless cameras. Its 18mm focal length is perfect for capturing stunning landscapes, architectural shots and interiors, and it creates a strong sense of perspective and scale. With its bright f/1.8 maximum aperture, you can control the depth of field for creative effects, while the nine-blade circular aperture creates beautiful bokeh. This lens is designed to produce rich and detailed stills as well as smooth and captivating still and video images with corner-to-corner precision.

This fast f/1.8 lens is comprised of thirteen lens elements in twelve groups. It includes three aspherical elements, three extra-low dispersion elements, one ultra extra-low dispersion element, and one ultra-high refractive index element. This advanced design effectively suppresses chromatic aberration, while also achieving high descriptive performance and beautiful bokeh. The ultra-wide angle of view makes this lens suitable for a wide range of imaging situations including landscapes, astrophotography, and architectural photography. It can also be used for close-up shots thanks to the minimum focusing distance of about 7".

Prime ultra-wide-angle lens designed for full-frame L-mount mirrorless cameras but can also be used on APS-C models where it provides a 27mm equivalent focal length.

Bright f/1.8 maximum aperture offers control over depth of field and suits working in low-light conditions.

Benefitting professional video applications, linear focus ring control for mechanical-based follow focus systems moves the focus at a constant speed by the rotating angle of the focus ring.

Excels in video recording performance with a silent autofocus mechanism that suppresses focus breathing.

Smooth exposure changes by micro-step aperture control for video applications.

High-resolution sharpness and performance to support 4K video.

Rounded nine-blade diaphragm contributes to a pleasing bokeh quality when employing selective focus techniques.

Offers the same approximate size, weight, and filter size of other f/1.8 S-series prime lenses to minimize balance reset time when using a gimbal.
