If you're in the market for a wide-angle prime lens that can gather plenty of light, you might want to check out Panasonic's highly anticipated new offering.
Officially announced just hours ago, the Leica DG Summilux 12mm f/1.4 is a prime lens built for mirrorless Micro 4/3 cameras. Not only ideal for low-light situations, this lens, which is equivalent to a 24mm, is weatherproof, has aspherical elements that control spherical and chromatic aberrations, provides sharp and clear images, and features an AF/MF switch with an auto-focus motor that is quiet enough for video.

- Aperture Range: f/1.4 to f/16
- Two Aspherical Elements

The expected availability for Panasonic's new lens is mid-August, but you can pre-order it now for $1300 at B&H.
