Panasonic 10-25mm f/1.7 March 2019 Hands-on Photos

Mark Goldstein | Compact System Camera , Lenses

An updated version of the Panasonic Leica DG Vario-Summilux 10-25mm f/1.7 Micro Four Thirds lens is being showcased at The Photography Show in the UK.

With a constant aperture of F1.7 throughout its 20-50mm effective focal range (in 35mm terms), this is a pretty big and heavy lens by Micro Four Thirds standards, as demonstrated by it's 77mm filter thread - but then we can't think of another lens quite like it.

Still in prototype format, the latest iteration of this mirrorless camera lens is now almost fully working. The zoom mechanism works so that you can see how far the lens extends at 10mm, 14mm (the shortest length) and 25mm, the clickless aperture ring rotates, and the manual focus collar pulls back to reveal focus distance markings. There's also a marking on the front that reveals the close focusing distance to be 0.28m.

There's still no word yet on availability or pricing of the Panasonic 10-25mm f/1.7, other than 2019, but this latest prototype shows definite progress has been made on this exciting Micro Four Thirds lens.
