Panasonic Leica DG Elmarit 200mm F2.8 Power OIS Lens Review (Ephotozine): A Definite Choice


John Riley has just posted a full review of the newly announced Panasonic Leica DG Elmarit 200mm F2.8 Power OIS lens (AmazonB&HAdorama) at the Tested on the Panasonic G6, this new telephoto prime has many pros: excellent sharpness, low CA, no flare, fast AF, beautifully designed, super OIS and weather sealed. This only flaw is the price for $2,997.99.


Verdict from ephotozine, “The Leica DG Elmarit 200mm f/2.8 Power O.I.S is a cracking good lens that is highly functional, with a very useful teleconverter that extends the possibilities. Yes, the price hurts, but the alternatives hurt even more. This is such a pleasure to use and the results are just as satisfying, even with the fairly modest pixel count of the Panasonic Lumix G6. A definite Editor’s Choice...”
