Product Overview

Panasonic Lumix G Vario 12-60mm F3.5-5.6 ASPH Power OIS is a standard zoom lens for Micro Four Thirds-mount. It covers the MFT image circle. Introduced by Panasonic in 2016, it has 11 elements in 9 groups.
Like most zoom lenses, the Panasonic Lumix G Vario 12-60mm F3.5-5.6 ASPH Power OIS is externally-zooming. For incremental weathers, Panasonic is kind enough to include weather sealing.
A standard zoom lens with moderate aperture, the Panasonic Lumix G Vario 12-60mm F3.5-5.6 ASPH Power OIS is more of a "volume seller" than a premium option. Still, some photographers may find the results "good enough". The lens is also stabilized, making it even easier to use for videos and stills alike.
