Product Overview

Panasonic Lumix G 12.5mm F12 is a wide-angle prime lens for Micro Four Thirds-mount. It covers the MFT image circle. Introduced by Panasonic in 2010, it has 4 elements in 3 groups. Panasonic designed this lens specifically for 3D image / video shooting.
As a wide-angle prime lens that is quite compact, the Panasonic Lumix G 12.5mm F12 can be an interesting component of a prime-lens kit well adapted for travel. Even though the lens is not stabilized, at this focal range it does not usually matter. In fact, some may be able to get cleaner corners without image stabilization.
Some photographers may be disappointed by the fact that the lens does not accept front screw-on filters. Some photographers may be disappointed by the fact that the lens does not accept front screw-on filters.
