Leica DG 8-18mm f2.8-4 review - Samples

Samples

The following images were taken with a Panasonic / Leica DG 8-18mm f2.8-4 lens mounted on a Lumix GX8 and an Olympus OMD EM1 Mark I. Both bodies were set to their highest resolutions of 20 and 16 Megapixels respectively. In each case I used Auto White Balance and the standard Photo style unless otherwise stated. Image stabilisation was enabled for hand-held shots and disabled for tripod based shots. All of the images below are JPEGs out-of-camera and are available to download in larger or their original formats for analysis. Click on the desired image to access the files at Flickr.
