Wide-angle prime lens offers a 24mm equivalent focal length to realize a broad field of view for working with a variety of subjects.
Two extra-low dispersion elements reduce chromatic aberrations and color fringing throughout the aperture and focusing ranges for notable clarity and color fidelity.
Two aspherical elements control distortion and spherical aberrations in order to achieve high sharpness and accurate rendering.
Compact focusing group promotes quick and responsive autofocus performance.
Dust- and weather-sealed physical construction enables working in harsh climates and temperatures as low as 14°F.
The 24mm*1 angle of view has become so popular that many consider this to be the standard for wide angle lenses. Once this was referred to as super wide angle, but now this view captures all the magic of a scene.
The lens reproduces sharp edges and shows every fine detail. Yet, the ultimate goal of high image resolution is to reproduce things as close to real life as possible. A truly great photograph conveys a gentle touch rather than harsh sharpness.
This lens is designed to enhance your joy in photography as you continue to use it. It does this by being compact when combined with the camera, allowing you to be confident enough to use it in every environment.
Ideally the autofocus system on a lens should be almost unnoticeable. It should finish autofocussing by the time you press the shutter button. It should be so fast and quiet that you don't even feel it. The AF in the GF30mm is such a system.
Weather-sealing is often thought of as a feature that just protects the lens. What in fact it also protects your creativity and the photograph you are trying to take. Using a fluorine coating on the front lens element makes it dust and moisture resistant, which allows you to concentrate on photography even in tough conditions. This is the key role of a lens.
