About this product

The Kowa PROMINAR MFT 12mm Lens, in black, is a wide angle manual focus lens for the Micro Four Thirds sensor format. Compact, stylish, and featuring advanced optics and Japanese construction drawing on 60+ years of Kowa's optical heritage, the lens is a suitable choice for sophisticated MFT cameras such as the Panasonic GH5. It features a 9-blade circular iris with f/1.8 and T1.9 maximum aperture and T-stop, and is designed with 12 lens elements in 10 groups. It is a fully multi-coated XD lens (extra-low dispersion glass) that can help you achieve reduced chromatic aberration.

Dual Link Iris

A dual Link Iris system makes it possible to choose silent or click aperture adjustment. Aperture settings can be changed in an instant

Circular Aperture

The construction of the aperture blades with 9 elements makes it possible that the diaphragm shows a circle at all f-stops, creating a more natural impression.

Aluminium Alloy Body

All internal parts are protected by a solid and rigid aluminium housing.The body feels reassuringly well made with good balance and weightiness in the hand and when attached to a camera body.

Floating Mechanism System

The floating mechanism system is effective in preventing malfunction and increasing the life of the lens. High optical performance was achieved in all photographic subject distances.
