The optical plan of this focal point comprises of 15 components in 10 gatherings. Among them are an aspherical ED (Extra-low Scattering) focal point, two ED focal points and an UHR (Ultra High Refractive Record) focal point component, their positions displayed in the graph underneath.

Together, they convey brilliant sharpness with low degrees of twisting and chromatic distortion, while Nano coatings smother inner reflections that can cause flare and ghosting. A miniature step AF drive framework guarantees smooth opening control for video recording.

The H-E08018 is viable with the LUMIX G sensor drive and can exploit the fast, high-accuracy Difference AF, at up to 240 fps. AF following execution while zooming is additionally improved by means of high velocity outline examination for center control. We tried the survey focal point on the Lumix GH5 camera body, which upholds these elements.

Who's it For?
Covering similar points of view as a 16-36mm focal point on a 35mm camera, the DG 8-18mm f/2.8-4 is the fourth super wide long range focal point to be delivered for the M4/3 mount by Panasonic and Olympus. It's not exactly as wide as the Lumix G Vario 7-14mm f/4.0 ASPH. focal point or the M.Zuiko Computerized ED 7-14mm f/2.8 Genius focal point yet it's more extensive than the M.Zuiko Computerized ED 9-18mm f/4.0-5.6 focal point, which is a full stop more slow across the zoom range. The table underneath looks at the four focal points.

Every one of the four focal points are probably going to engage scene and road photographic artists due to their rakish inclusion. The Panasonic 8-18mm focal point could draw in engineering photographic artists since it is strikingly contortion free, is exceptionally flare safe and has low degrees of vignetting (edge and corner obscuring).

It likewise enjoys the benefits of a somewhat light weight, minimized size and residue and splashproof fixing and the quick f/2.8-4.0 opening reach makes it ideal for low-light use. While the zoom range is excessively wide for individual representations, it could function admirably for bunch shots, especially in restricted spaces. It would likewise be usable for natural pictures.

Construct and Ergonomics
Purchasers expect a Leica-marked focal point to be very much constructed and the Panasonic 8-18mm focal point doesn't frustrate. Its basically metal development and climate safe fixing empower it to endure the afflictions of outside use and its humble most extreme opening reach keeps it generally minimized and light.

The front component sits well back in the focal point barrel and lumps outwards. The internal edge of the barrel before this component is strung for a standard 67mm channel, while the external edge has a knife mount for the provided focal point hood, which has a push-in lock.

The 88 mm long barrel is decidedly built and both centering and zooming are completely inward so the actual length of the focal point is unaltered when either is changed. This makes it simple to utilize point basic polarisers and graduated channels.

The manual centering ring starts 22mm back from the main edge of the focal point barrel. This ring is 13 mm wide, with everything except the back 2 mm being finely furrowed to give a hold band. The ring turns without a hitch and is electronically determined so centering must be changed when a camera is joined and turned on.

The focal point barrel inclines inwards for around 4 mm to meet the zoom ring, which is about 24 mm wide and has a 18 mm wide furrowed grasp band. The following edge of this ring conveys markings for the accompanying central length settings: 8mm, 9mm, 10mm, 12mm, 14mm and 18mm.

This ring additionally turns without a hitch and decidedly. As the focal point is zoomed in, the most extreme gap changes as displayed in the table beneath, while the base gap stays steady at f/22.
