It accepts over 20 Lumix and Leica lenses. The camera uses the Depth From Defocus technology to determine the distance between the subject and the lens. It calculates the sharpness levels of two different images to calculate the distance to the subject. The camera also offers Dual Native ISO that allows you to use 400 and 2500 as base points to increase the normal ISO range of 51200 and extend it to 204800. Thanks to the high readout speeds, the rolling shutter distortion is reduced by approximately 1.3×.
