Panasonic released M43 ultra-wide-angle 9mm F1.7 large aperture lens

According to Panasonic's official news, today, Panasonic launched a new large-aperture ultra-wide-angle prime lens, LEICA DG SUMMILUX 9mm F1.7 (equivalent to 35mm: 18mm).

According to reports, this lens can be used on the LUMIX G series cameras of the M43 system. It only has a large aperture, a very short minimum focusing distance of 0.095m, and a 0.25x magnification (equivalent to 35mm: 0.5x). Officially, it also boasts premium description performance and smooth, beautiful bokeh that meets LEICA's exacting standards.

The H-X09 consists of 12 lenses in 9 groups, including 2 aspherical lenses, 2 ED (extra-low dispersion) lenses, and 1 UHR (ultra-high refractive index) lens, which can effectively suppress the axial Chromatic aberration and chromatic aberration magnification distortion. These aspherical lenses also correct astigmatism for high resolution. In addition, the UHR (Ultra High Refractive Index) lens achieves uniform image quality from the center of the image to the edges, while helping to reduce the size of the lens unit.

The H-X09 is capable of lens group drive speeds of up to 240 fps, in conjunction with the camera's high-speed, high-precision contrast autofocus system, for smooth, silent operation. In terms of manual focus, for the nonlinear setting, the focus moves by a variable amount based on the rotation speed of the focus ring, while for the linear setting, the focus moves by a specified amount based on the amount of rotation of the focus ring. Sensitivity (focus offset per rotational unit) is in units of 30°, covering a select range from 90° to 360° to achieve the desired focus operation.

The H-X09 has a compact body and light weight of about 130 grams, with the high convenience of the M43 system. Its sturdy dust/splash proof*2 design can withstand even harsh conditions of minus 10 degrees Celsius. The filter is 55 mm in diameter with 7 circular aperture diaphragms. At present, Panasonic has not announced the national bank price and release time of the H-X09 lens.
