Pros: Color, contrast, sharpness at very high levels. Construction quality and tropicalization.

Cons: Nobody.

Opinion: Purchased about 3 and a half years ago in kit with Lumix GH5, it was my entry into the micro 4/3 world. I chose Panasonic for the catalog presence of Leica optics and for the possibility, via adapter, to use the old Leica R optics. The 12-60 is an excellent all-rounder target, which today I mainly use with a GX8 body. I find them an excellent pairing for street photography and travel photos, when the prevailing need is to travel light and photograph in fluency. The results never disappoint, in any circumstance.

Pros: Highest quality, stabilization, AF-MF and Power O.I.S. buttons, versatility 24-120

Cons: Weight and size just over the limit of the m4/3 philosophy, made in china

Opinion: Purchased to replace the Panasonic Lumix G 14-45mm f/3.5-5.6 ASPH OIS of 2009, after 10 years of honored service, first used with the G1 and most recently with the G80. The first things of panaleic that are immediately evident are the larger size, weight and extraordinary build quality (metal and glass with a fluid lychee zoom) that immediately give the feeling to the touch that you are maneuvering a precision instrument. This lens changed the character of the photographs by giving that extra edge and sharpness that were missing at the excellent 14-45. The detail is very clean and we immediately notice it, even before the shot, when the MF assistant intervenes by zooming the camera to 8x. The 2.8 to 12mm opened up new possibilities for me compared to the 14 3.5, it seems little but it's like having an extra goal. The 60mm with f4, compared to 45mm f5.6, also added value for portraits. All while maintaining a very high image quality and that I am not going to explain why it is easily understandable by looking at the many photos posted. The stabilization combined with that of the G80 sensor is impressive! The buttons on the lens are very comfortable! All this is enough for me to give my modest "10" rating to the goal. However, I hold back the praise because: - I suffer a little because it is made in china, as is also my G80... With the G1 and the 14-45 I had got used to the "made in japan" near "panasonic" - the weight and clutter are not from philosophy micro four-thirds - the size of the lens are not perfectly compatible with the internal flash of the G80, so you have to take into account that the shadow will invade the frame on the subjects nearby

Pros: Equivalent focal length 24-120; Opening diaphragm; Tropicalization; Standard lampshade

Cons: Flare; Ghost images; Edge sharpness

Opinion: It is my custom to stress equipment, testing bodies and lenses in the most diverse contexts (street, landscape, portraiture, night, etc.). This Pana-Leica proved to be versatile, ideal to carry attached to the machine for a full photo day without feeling the need for other lenses. It does everything right and stabilization helps when you need it. The construction is excellent and solid and gives great sensations although I would prefer a larger manual focus dial. Paired with the micro 4:3 Olympus (E-M1, E-M5, E-M5 MkII) produces undoubtedly good files but with problems kneading on greens (e.g. trees and foliage), reds (e.g. flowers) and and ghosts in the backlight and in night photographs. The sharpness at the edges also decays a little to intermediate diaphragms. On the other hand, chromatic aberrations are almost absent. Overall, an all-do that I would recommend, given the fact that it has no competitors among the standard zooms apart from the 12-40 2.8 Olympus (but to me the 20mm more than the Pana-Leica are convenient).

Pros: Everything: focal excursion, enough macro, sharpness, lightness, blurry quality, AF speed, silence, stabilizer, no flare or particular ghost, tropicalization, .....

Cons: A little bigger and heavier than the kit (similar to the 12-40), more expensive than the kits

Opinion: I am totally satisfied with this lens. I can't find any particular faults for him. It solves all situations with the focal excursion that goes from 24 to 120 of an FF. He can get a lot of fire up close so that he can take pictures of little flowers and insects, so on an excursion I can do almost everything beautifully, from the panorama, to the closeup, to the photo of some animal if at a short distance. When I use it to portray it is fine, clearly with the blurring limits of an m4/3, that is, a 60mm that opens to F4 at most. Even at night I have no problems in the presence of light. Before I used various lenses, from kit zooms to fixed, well the 12-60 replaced them all, I rarely happen to use the 14-45, the 25 1.4 or the 60 2.8. For me we recommended.

Pros: focal extension, lightness, colors, build quality, tropicalization, price and blazon

Cons: the only flaw I found is that I found myself involuntarily with the anti-vibration disengaged by moved key by mistake and that could be better protected

Opinion: A must-have handyman for the micro 4/3 system; the absence of constant f. 2.8 is absolutely made up of the combined anti-vibration of the machine body and lens; it really photographs itself with unthinkable freehand times; lightness and compactness are also unthinkable in positive for those like me who come from the full frame reflex world; despite having bought a complete equipment of lenses for all uses I think I will end up using this 95% also because it reaches up to 120 mm. equivalent, really many
