The Leica DG Elmarit 200mm f2.8 Power OIS (H-ES200) is a high-end telephoto prime lens designed for the Micro Four Thirds system. Mounted on a Panasonic or Olympus mirrorless body, it delivers equivalent coverage of 400mm, or 560mm when coupled with the 1.4x tele-converter supplied with it.
This compact, lightweight high-speed telephoto lens is perfect for handheld photography.
The included 1.4x teleconverter boosts the 200mm focal length to 280mm (560mm in 35mm camera equivalent).

The lens is supplied with a removeable tripod foot that screws into a rotating and lockable collar on the barrel, a long plastic lens hood that can be reversed over the barrel for transportation and which uses a screw to lock into place.The barrel is smooth and solidly-assembled, and claims dust and splash-proof construction with a rubber grommet on the lens mount.

Physical controls located on the lens barrel provide quick access to many commonly adjusted settings. Towards the end of the barrel is a dedicated aperture ring, allowing you to manually select focal ratios from f2.8 to f22 in one third increments; there’s also an A position to allow the camera to control the aperture. Note the manual aperture selection will only work on Panasonic bodies, while on Olympus bodies you’ll be adjusting it using the camera controls. Towards the middle of the barrel you’ll find an autofocus limiter switch (the full range or from 3m to infinity).

Below the focus limiter switch is a large function button accompanied by a switch to configure it. Set the switch to Fn and you can program the function of the barrel button from the menus of a compatible body – only the G9 initially, although a firmware update to the GH5 brings the option to this body too. The switch below the button also lets you program a fixed focusing distance that can be recalled at a later moment – you first set the switch to Memory before focusing to the desired spot, then set the switch to Call to instantly return to it with an AF command, like a half-press of the shutter release. If you’re a bird photographer you’ll immediately appreciate the usefulness of this to lock-in the distance to, say, a nest or a favourite fishing perch.
