The Leica DG Nocticron 42.5mm f/1.2 ASPH Power OIS lens from Panasonic offers a 35mm focal length equivalent of 85mm and a fast aperture of f/1.2. The lens also features Power OIS (optical image stabilization) ensuring sharp images by decreasing the effect of movement and camera shake. For added quality, the lens incorporates a nano surface coating technology that minimizes reflections caused by stray light. This combines with two aspherical elements that suppress spherical aberration and distortion. In addition, there is an extra-low dispersion element that increases contrast and sharpness and an ultra high reflective index element allows for a uniform look to the edges of the frame. This lens also has an all-metal design including the lens mount and the included hood. The Leica DG Nocticron 42.5mm f/1.2 ASPH Power OIS lens from Panasonic is now available at B&H for $1,599 USD.
