Panasonic has announced the development of a new Lumix G 25mm f/1.7 lens and a Leica DC 100-400mm lens, along with the launch of their new 'Post Focus' technology. 

Panasonic 25mm lens

The new Lumix G 25mm f/1.7 single focal length lens, is equivalent to 50mm in 35mm terms. The lens will support high-speed digital exchange at 240 fps to comply with the high-precision AF with DFD (Depth From Defocus) technology on Lumix G cameras. 

Leica DG 100-400mm lens

Panasonic also announced that it is developing the first Leica DG 100-400mm f/4-6.3 telephoto zoom lens for the MFT standard. 

The LEICA DG lenses are designed and developed clearing the stringent quality standard certified by Leica to boast excellent optical performance. Four single focal length LEICA DG lenses have already been introduced to the market.

The new telephoto zoom achieves exceptional imaging performance over the entire zoom range. It also features high speed digital signal exchange at 240 fps to comply with the high-speed, high-precision AF (Auto Focus) with DFD (Depth From Defocus) technology on the LUMIX G camera. Together with the POWER O.I.S. (Optical Image Stabilizer), it lets photographers focus on the target quickly to capture crisp, clear images. In addition, the new lens features high mobility supported by its splash/dust-proof rugged design to withstand heavy field use.

The new telephoto zoom lens also excels in size and weight, which is a common advantage with all LUMIX G cameras, enabling handheld 800mm (35mm camera equivalent) telephoto shooting even without using a tripod.

No pricing or availability information has been announced about these lenses as yet.
