Panasonic has just announced the new Leica DG SUMMILUX 12mm f/1.4 ASPH lens today. It will be the widest prime that company offers (not counting its 8mm fisheye) and provides an equivalent 24mm view on Micro Four Thirds bodies. Designed to withstand a little wear-and-tear in the form of splashes and dust, the 12mm F1.4 offers a dedicated ring to control its nine-bladed aperture.
Price and release date hasn’t announced yet.
