The wide to short-telephoto focal length of this classy zoom lens from Panasonic will benefit many Micro Four Thirds users and will surely see it spending more time mounted to the front of cameras than stored in gadget bags. The equivalent zoom range of this Panasonic Leica DG Vario-Elmarit 12-60mm f2.8-4 lens is 24-120mm, ideal for endless uses, including landscape, portraits, travel and everyday snapshots.
Throughout the entire zoom range of this lens you will be able to utilise a fast maximum aperture, within the vicinity of f2.8-4, which is superior to many zoom lenses of this type. This feature in conjunction with Panasonic's Power Optical Image Stabilisation will put an end to your surprise meetings with camera shake, an old enemy that shows its face every now and then, ruining your images and subsequently your precious memories. Fast, quiet and accurate autofocus is assured due to the use of a linear autofocus motor, which is handy for all manner of photographic applications, but also for the capture of high definition and 4K video which is possible on modern Micro Four Thirds cameras.
You would have undoubtedly noticed that the Leica name is gracing this lens, which is due to the famous manufacturer's inclusion in the design process. Four Aspherical and two extra-low dispersion elements have been employed in the optical design, which results in the reduction of various aberrations and distortions. What you are left with is only the good stuff, high levels of image sharpness and clarity with impressive colour accuracy. The construction quality does not stop with its optical performance, with the Panasonic 12-60mm f2.8-4 also benefiting from a build that finds it dust, splash and freeze-proof. This is a quality piece of gear that is not afraid of an unplanned camping journey into the great unknown.
