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.

Panasonic Lumix G X Vario 12-35mm f/2.8 II Reviews
Excellent versatile lens
Works great on my BMPCC 4K or GH5s. I use this a lot with my gimbal. AF is great and with crop factor, still gives a nice wide angle zoom focal length range.
This is what I needed in my camera bag
I have several Panasonic lenses that I use with my trusty G7 taking photos of my teenagers playing volleyball and acting in a theatre. In most of the cases I was using G 42.5mm f/1.7 which I love but sometimes I needed wider angle but no space to move back. That's where 12-35 came to play. It is fast focusing and with nice wide aperture you can freeze action even in a dim light. Images are sharp and beautiful. Focus is fast and sharp. The construction is solid and not too heavy. I recommend it.
Excellent Quality - Great Video/Photo
This lens works really well with my Lumix GH5 II! It focuses quickly, has built-in stabilization, and provides clear images/videos.
Great standard lens
This lens is small, well made and reasonably fast for a lens of its type. It is remarkably sharp, in fact after using it a bit I traded off my 25mm f/1.4 lens which was not quite as sharp. The perfect lens to keep on your MFT camera, regardless of size or brand.
I love it!
Great little all around lens for low light! Perfect for weddings, commercials, promos and corporate events!
Broken after less than 2 years
The manual focus ring and also the autofocus stop working after 1y and 3 months (using it less than 1 time a month).. Panasonic offers 3 years warranty for this lens but Its not worldwide warranty as I expected.. Unfortunately my first experience with Panasonic lens is not being good.
Great lens for size and image
Awesome lens. It is great for travel. Has an awesome focal length range and weighs almost nothing. The only way I think this lens can be further improved is to add a stepless aperture ring for videomakers.
Beautiful and general purpose lens
This is my favorite go-to lens for my GH4/5 cameras. I love the 2.8 brightness and the versatility for zooming in and out.
