A Versatile Lens for Any Situation

The Panasonic Leica DG Vario-Elmarit 12-60mm f/2.8-4 POWER O.I.S. Lens is designed for Micro Four Thirds cameras like the GH5 or GH4 and boasts a focal range of 12-60mm. This makes it easy to switch between wide landscape shots and mid-range portraits with a simple twist of the zoom ring. The lens uses an advanced optical construction to deliver sharp results while also controlling image distortion. It's also dust, water and freeze proof, making it a great choice for any photographer who needs to get the shot no matter what.

Versatile Zoom Range

The Panasonic lens has a focal length of 12-60mm giving you the flexibility to capture both images and video in a wide range of different shooting scenarios. With a 35mm equivalent focal range of 24-120mm the lens suits a range of photography styles and is just as capable shooting wide-angle landscapes as it is capturing sharp tele-photo portraits.

Bright F/2.8 Aperture

With a maximum aperture of f/2.8 and the widest end the 12-60mm lens can capture great images even when shooting in a range of light conditions, making it an ideal travel lens. The aperture uses a 9-bladed diaphragm which adds a gentle bokeh to the shallow depth of field look, perfect for portraits and for cinematic video work.

State-of-the-Art Optical Design

Using 14 elements that are arranged in 12 groups inside, the lens incorporates four aspherical (ASPH) elements and two Extra-Low Dispersion (ED) elements to ensure optimal image sharpness with excellent colour accuracy. This construction controls spherical and chromatic aberrations while also helping to keep the size and weight of the lens optimised and portable.

Splash/Dust/Freeze Proof Build

Boasting a resistance to dust, water and low temperatures, when combined with select LUMIX cameras, the 12-60mm Leica lens is the perfect travel lens for any weather conditions. This gives you the ability to capture landscapes and natures shots while hiking or trekking without worrying about damaging your gear.

Fast Accurate Autofocus

An integrated linear autofocus motor ensures that the lens can deliver fast autofocus for pin-sharp results in both photo and video. Focus changes are smooth and quick and the motor operates almost silently, perfect for videographers to capture subtle moments.

Lens Coating

The nano coating on the elements reduces ghosting and flaring so that you can capture images in backlit conditions. The coating provides excellent colour re-production and controls image contrast allowing you to shoot eye-catching dramatic shots during golden hour.

POWER O.I.S. Stabilisation and Dual I.S. Functionality

Handheld shots with the Panasonic Leica DG Vario Elmarit 12-60 mm f/2.8-4 lens are even easier with the POWER Optical Image Stabilisation system that lets you capture images with slower shutter speeds and smooth video footage without sacrificing sharpness. The lens also supports Panasonic's Dual IS system which combines with the stabilised sensors on select Panasonic cameras to produce an impressive 5-stops of image stabilisation.
