The technical details behind this lens
Spanning a useful wide-angle to short telephoto range, the Leica DG Vario-Elmarit 12-60mm f/2.8-4 ASPH. POWER O.I.S. Lens from Panasonic is a 24-120mm equivalent zoom designed for Micro Four Thirds cameras.
Designed in collaboration with Leica, this versatile lens utilizes four aspherical elements and two extra-low dispersion elements to deliver well-corrected, sharp image quality that is void of colour fringing and distortions.
Autofocus and image stabilisation
The lens also makes use of a linear motor for fast, quiet, and precise autofocus performance, and the POWER Optical Image Stabilizer system helps to minimize the appearance of camera shake for sharper handheld shooting. Additionally, the durable metal body of the lens renders it splash, dust, and freezeproof to suit its use in trying environmental conditions.

Our expert’s opinion
The equivalent 24-120mm focal length range will meet nearly all of your lens requirements, for wide angle to short telephoto. If you’re shooting on a Mirrorless Micro Four Thirds camera, size and weight are likely considerations for you. This lens weighs a mere 320g. With an aperture as wide as f/2.8 you’ll be able to achieve great bokeh, especially with nine rounded diaphragm blades. The autofocus is fast and accurate. This isn’t the cheapest lens in its class, but the quality still makes it good value for money.
