Panasonic 12-35mm f/2.8 overview

  • 1Description

A versatile zoom covering wide-angle to portrait-length perspectives, the Lumix G X Vario 12-35mm f/2.8 II ASPH. POWER O.I.S. Lens from Panasonic is designed for Micro Four Thirds cameras, where it provides a convenient 24-70mm equivalent focal length range. A constant f/2.8 maximum aperture affords consistent performance throughout the zoom range, and benefits working in difficult lighting conditions as well as enables greater control over depth of field. The sophisticated optical design employs a series of aspherical, low dispersion, and high refractive index glass elements to control a variety of aberrations and distortions for sharp, clean image quality and a Nano Surface Coating has also been applied to reduce ghosting and flare. A POWER Optical Image Stabilizer minimizes the appearance of camera shake to suit handheld shooting, and this O.I.S. system is also compatible with Dual I.S. for enhanced stabilization performance. Additionally, the lens also features a durable all-metal housing that is dust, splash, and freezeproof to enable its use in harsh climates.

Standard zoom for Micro Four Thirds mirrorless cameras, this lens provides a 24-70mm equivalent focal length range.
Bright constant f/2.8 maximum aperture maintains consistent performance throughout the zoom range.
Four aspherical elements, one ultra extra-low dispersion element, and one ultra high refractive index element all contribute to minimizing chromatic and spherical aberrations and various aberrations in order to produce a high degree of clarity, sharpness, and color accuracy.
Nano Surface Coating has been applied to individual elements to reduce flare and ghosting for improved contrast and color neutrality.
POWER Optical Image Stabilizer minimizes the appearance of camera shake for sharper handheld shooting, and also supports the Dual I.S. function for increased stabilization performance.
Splash, dust, and freezeproof design benefits working in inclement weather conditions.
Rounded seven-blade diaphragm contributes to a smooth and pleasing bokeh quality.

    Panasonic 12-35mm f/2.8 reviews

    Lumix G X Vario 12-35mm f/2.8 II ASPH. POWER O.I.S. Lens is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 31.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Worth the extra cost over the v1 Spent many weeks testing it. While it appears to be very similar to the v1, there are important differences, the most significant of which is DUAL IS 2, which is far superior to the standard OIS in v1 or even the DUAL IS 1 if you upgrade to firmware 1.3. If you are a video maker, it will be worth the extra cost for that stabilization during both stills and video shooting. This is why you would purchase this lens. (See Youtube for my GH5 IBIS tests). Most other aspects appear to be very similar to v1, v2 is a touch wider, v2 still shows significant lens flare (I wouldn't recommend it for sunset shooting, I think the Olympus 12-40 2.8 is better).

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic lens! Everything you read about this lens - and its 35-100mm f2.8 companion - are true. Very sharp focus, excellent lens. This one was my first lens purchase for my new GH5 since it goes from wide 12mm to short zoom 35mm, right through the standard 25mm (50mm, 35mm equivalent). So once you buy this, then you will say I need that 35-100mm to complete the set since 3x zoom, for either of these lenses, really isn't much. You are trading off large zoom capability for lens quality and being f2.8 fast (low light). Then your next lens will be wow, even wider would be nice, the olympus 7-14mm F2.8 (which i've also bought). If you want a longer zoom, but higher f, consider the 14-140 10x. I've bought that too as a travel all-in-one lens.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I would recommend it to a friend! It is so amazing working with the gh5. While recording handheld, my friend sneezed and his hand moved as you obviously do, I have reviewed the clip and there was no movement recorded.. The stabilization for me is mind blowing with the gh5. I am so pleased with the acquisition!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Versatile, all-round zoom I shot with the original 12-35mm/f2.8 zoom on my Panasonic camera since it first came out. I have several prime lenses that I use, but the 12-35 is the one you'd most likely find on my camera at any given time. I have always been impressed with the versatility and image quality of the original lens. I've finally upgraded to version II because I now have a Panasonic camera body that can use the dual image stabilization. I have yet to find a reason to change my high opinion of this lens.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great lens and image quality, but looks and feels cheap I only have one complain about this lens. It has nothing to do with image quality, sharpness or anything but simply build. For a $1,000 lens, it just feels cheap. It feels like a kit lens that comes on a Canon T3i. Honestly, it doesn't feel much different than a standard 18-55 Canon kit lens, and thats a bummer. For a lens of this price, it should feel better. It should look more professional, and feel more professional. It feels cheap and plastic which is not what I was hoping for. It's for my first Panasonic lens so maybe they all feel this way, but it's a bummer. I'm used to Sony Zeiss metal lenses, and Canon L lenses which are super well made and look sexy. This lens, not so much.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A third of the Holy Trinity of lenses This lens the first of my quest for the holy trinity of Panasonic G X series Power OIS II lenses. The GX Vario 12-35mm f/2.8 is the equivalent of the DSLR's 24-70mm f/2.8 but in a micro four third system. I chose this over the 12-60 because of the smaller size and constant aperture. And, it will pair well with the 35-100mm f/2.8. The 12-35mm focal range is a great all around lens that allows me to shoot many styles of photography and video in changing conditions anytime, anywhere. It's small, compact, light, weather sealed, and inconspicuous. The low light performance is great. The AF is super fast and accurate. And this lens works great with the Dual IS 2 of the LUMIX G9. I've not had any micro jitters. Some of the things that are not great. The focus by wire for video. But, I've developed a work around using the manual focus to start the focus shift, and use back button focus to finish for accuracy. Also, the lens barrel extends out when zooming out. Not really a problem, but the air sucking could inhibit dust into the lens which is my main concern shooting mostly in the desert. At any rate, a great lens for the G9 for photo and video. And like my DSLRs it will be my main lens that will be used the most. Some may consider it pricy, but for the equivalent of a DSLR 24-70, in this compact size, it's a great deal.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing I use this lens for video mostly. I love its low weight and hight optical quality. It has focus by wire, which many people seem to dislike. But I paired with a GH5 camera, and do most of my focusing through the touch screen, which imo, is a superb feature. In low light I do it manually, but the focus by wire hasn't been a nuisance so far.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent lens The images from stills are really sharp. Decent bokeh. Lens feels well made and quality parts. Supports dual IS 2, which is highly recommended for handheld use.
