Product Overview

Panasonic Leica DG Vario-Elmarit 12-60mm F2.8-4.0 ASPH Power OIS is a standard zoom lens for Micro Four Thirds-mount. It covers the MFT image circle. Introduced by Panasonic in 2017, it has 14 elements in 12 groups.
Like most zoom lenses, the Panasonic Leica DG Vario-Elmarit 12-60mm F2.8-4.0 ASPH Power OIS is externally-zooming. For incremental weathers, Panasonic is kind enough to include weather sealing.
A standard zoom lens with relatively bright maximum aperture, the Panasonic Leica DG Vario-Elmarit 12-60mm F2.8-4.0 ASPH Power OIS can be a key piece in a photographer's arsenal, though some may prefer prime lenses in this focal range. The lens is also stabilized, making it even easier to use for videos and stills alike.
