Panasonic Leica DG Vario-Elmarit 8-18mm f/2.8-4.0 ASPH Review
Sharpness at 18mm
The sharpness tests for this review were carried out using a real-world subject rather than a test chart. The Leica DG Vario-Elmarit 8-18mm f/2.8-4.0 ASPH lens was attached to a Panasonic Lumix DMC-G80 compact system camera, which in turn was mounted on a sturdy tripod. The self-timer was used to avoid any vibrations from pressing the shutter release. Slight tonal changes are due to slight changes in natural light during the session.
The full frame at 18mm
Both centre and edge sharpness are excellent from f/5.6-f/11. Diffraction starts to affect the image sharpness from f/16 onwards.
