American Photo's editors choose the top ten camera lenses from 2006.
This zoom is is a perfect match for Panasonic's new Lumix DMC-L1 D-SLR-a Leica lens for a camera that looks like an M-series rangefinder. Designed for Four Thirds-mount D-SLRs, it's the equivalent of 28 -100mm in the 35mm format, and even has built-in image stabilization, smoothing out the L1's "live" LCD. Talk about a nod to tradition, this lens even has a manual aperture ring.
