Source found in the Panasonic pavilion at the exhibition stand Photokina 2016 release calendar lenses, covering the period from 2012 to 2017. As the historical part of the graph uninteresting, we shall only note that it includes six models. As for the plans, the company includes the release of three zoom lenses Leica DG Vario-Elmarit. Covering various focal length ranges, all of them will have a maximum aperture of F/2.8 To F/4,0.
The layouts of all three products, the manufacturer has included in its exposition.
The development is a model Leica DG 12-60mm F/2.8-4.0, a release which is expected this year. Given the crop factor of the Micro Four Thirds system, which includes the described lenses, this model can be classified as a universal zoom (EGF 24-120 mm).
The second lens under development relates to a wide angle. The launch of the Leica DG 8-18mm F/2.8-4.0 is expected in 2017.
The release of the third model — the Leica DG telephoto 50-200mm F/2.8-4.0 — also scheduled for next year. But this model has not yet reached the stage of development.
