question

How does this compare with the 12-60 f2.8-4? Besides the aperture range changing more, is it the same lens and quality? Thank you.
Asked by: David
A Kia is nice. A BMW is better. That is the main difference with these lenses. The higher price gets you a faster aperture, better lens design and better build quality.

question

is this lens giving anyone else a lot of blue flares in pictures? I don't know if its lens or the camera gx8
Asked by: Sara M.
I use my Lumix G Vario 12-60mm f3.5-5.6 on my GX9 plus the GX7 I had until recently. I don't use hoods, often shoot in the middle of the day, and have never had a flare problem with this lens.

question

Have Olympus Pen E-P3, will Olympus image stabilization work with this lens?
Asked by: Rene
The lens does not have a manual switch to turn the image stabilization on/off. Most Olympus cameras will automatically default to in body stabilization when using Panasonic lenses. I would think the E-P3 works the same way. Hope this helps.
