Product Description

The new LEICA DG VARIO-ELMARIT 12-60mm / F2.8-4.0 ASPH. / POWER O.I.S. (35 mm camera equivalent: 24-120 mm; 5x zoom range), a new standard length zoom digital interchangeable lens, is the first lens to be introduced from Panasonic’s LEICA DG VARIO-ELMARIT F2.8-4.0 series. It fully covers a variety of daily shooting situations, from dynamic landscapes to portraits even in low-lit situations or providing a beautiful defocus effect by taking advantage of the F2.8-4.0 high-speed performance.

In addition to the wide aperture, the POWER O.I.S. (Optical Image Stabilizer) effectively compensates for blurring, making it easy to shoot - even in dim lighting. The lens works with the Dual I.S. (Image Stabilizer) , 5-axis Dual I.S., and 5-axis Dual I.S. 2 system when mounted on an applicable Panasonic LUMIX G camera.

Notably, the new lens excels in video recording performance. In addition to the silent operation achieved by the inner focus drive system, the micro-step drive system in the aperture control section helps the camera to smoothly catch up to brightness changes when zooming or panning. The optical design achieves exceptional barycentric stability to minimise image shifts during zooming.

The new lens boasts a rugged, dust and splash-proof design and is even freeze-proof down to -10℃, to withstand professional use under harsh conditions. Yet, the lens is very compact, allowing easy carrying for photographers and videographers.

    Panasonic 12-60 f2.8-4

    I purchased this lens following the excellent results obtained by my Panasonic 100-400. I have been a MFT convert for a long time once I recognised the benefits of travelling light. This lens was a replacement for my Mk1 12-35 f2.8. I have had this lens now for over two weeks ad have not been disappointed. I take a lot of pictures of a local bridge project and my bag regularly has the following:- 3 G80's with a12-60, 35-70 and the 100-400, giving me coverage of 24-800mm, try this with any other format.
    The overall build quality and performance in my view is better than the 12-35. The G80 has 5 axis stabilisation with the new lens and this appears to be of great benefit. The lens begins to stop down after 50mm but this is not a problem. with 4k video this lens works perfectly.
    Once the 50-200 f2.8-4 lens becomes available I will trade in my 35-70.
    Most of my kit comes from UK digital, they give me great service and their prices are normally unbeatable with the comfort that it is always UK stock and there will be no problems if any unlikely issues arise.

    I love my little LUMIX GX8 and teaming it with this lens creates a great combination. I used it for a full weekend shooting the Tall Ships Regatta in Greenwich and Woolwich and never had to change the lens. From wide shots to close up portraits this lens proved well up to the task. The LUMIX/Leica combination is real quality.
