Product Overview

Panasonic Lumix G Vario HD 12-32mm F3.5-5.6 Mega OIS is a standard zoom lens for Micro Four Thirds-mount. It covers the MFT image circle. Introduced by Panasonic in 2013, it has 8 elements in 7 groups.
Like most zoom lenses, the Panasonic Lumix G Vario HD 12-32mm F3.5-5.6 Mega OIS is externally-zooming. Unfortunately, Panasonic has opted to omit weather sealing for this lens, so owners should pay extra attention when shooting in incremental weathers.
A standard zoom lens with moderate aperture, the Panasonic Lumix G Vario HD 12-32mm F3.5-5.6 Mega 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.
