Panasonic 12-35mm f/2.8 X OIS

Available Today

The Panasonic 12-35mm f/2.8 X OIS is a fast aperture standard range zoom lens for Micro 4/3rds mount cameras and camcorders. With a 35mm equivalent focal length of 24-70mm, this lens fills the void of the standard go-to lens that long plagued the Micro 4/3rds format. It features Panasonic’s Power O.I.S. in-lens image stabilizer, which offers twice the amount of correction as Panasonic’s previous stabilizer, and a nearly-silent autofocusing motor works great with both photo and video shooting.

The optics feature Nano Surface Coating to reduce ghosting and flare, Ultra Extra-Low Dispersion glass to minimize chromatic aberration, and Ultra High Refractive glass to give strong corner to corner performance. The Panasonic 12-35mm also features a dust and splash-proof design, as well as a strong, metal lens mount.

t’s finally here: the equivalent of a 24-70mm professional quality zoom on full-frame is now available for m4/3 cameras. It’s as good as I’d hoped it would be, meaning it gives you just what this type of lens does on a full-frame camera. It’s very sharp even wide open. Not as sharp as the best primes, but close. And it doesn’t have a weak spot, it retains sharpness at both the long and short ends of the zoom. It gets a bit sharper at f/4, but not much, so most of us will leave it on f/2.8 all of the time.

I shoot it mostly on an Olympus body, so I haven’t tried the OIS on this lens, but other’s tell me it’s very, very efficient. Probably the only warning I have is do NOT put the sun in your image. This lens will flare, most definitely it will flare. But otherwise it’s just about perfect.
