Each of the two companies that together created the LUMIX lens is a world leader in its field. The Leica name is nothing short of legendary. Leica's history is closely interwoven with the history of the camera itself. Favored by top photographers all around the world, Leica cameras have captured some of the most memorable, emotionally rich photos ever recorded.
Panasonic is a pioneer and industry leader in a different branch of the image-producing world. The company has developed and introduced a great many new technologies in broadcast equipment and video cameras, among other products.
In their collaboration, these two technological giants not only complemented each other's strengths, they also merged their vast technical resources to create something that neither could have created on its own. Synergy in image creation – that's the significance of their partnership. That's the beauty of LUMIX.
