PanaLeica paying tribute to Pentax
Mar 29, 2014

Leica and Panasonic taking a page from the book of Pentax, and learning too.

Brand new Panaleica 15mm/1.7 has, coincidentally, 9 elements in 7 groups, the FoV of 30mm equivalent and a max aperture of f1.7.

It sounds awfully similar to FA31 Ltd lens, which also has 9 elements in 7 groups, 31mm FoV and f1.8.

Of course, it is not a direct copy because it is a lens for a 4x smaller sensor size. But it is definitely a form of flattery.

Madamina, il catalogo è questo; Delle belle che amò il padron mio; un catalogo egli è che ho fatt'io; Osservate, leggete con me.
