Designed for Micro Four Thirds Camera Systems

The Panasonic Lumix G Vario 12-60mm f/3.5-5.6 ASPH Power OIS Lens is designed for Micro Four Third Cameras and specifically for the Lumix G compact system range.

Versatile 5X Zoom

The 24-120mm (35mm equivalent) zoom offers a broad spectrum of shooting scenarios. From wide-angle to telephoto, the 12-60mm Lumix G Vario Lens is capable of capturing everything from wide panoramas to exquisite portraits and close-ups. Further bolstering the lens’ versatility is its 0.54x (35mm equivalent) magnification allowing outstanding macro-style shots.

Remarkable Image Quality

Comprising of 3 Aspherical (ASPH) lenses and 1 Extra Low Dispersion (ED) lens, ensures significant reduction of chromatic aberration and distortion, producing beautiful images with minimum colour fringing throughout the entire zoom range.

Optimised for High Speed AF

The Lumix G Vario lens incorporates an inner focus drive system and a stepping motor to complement Panasonic's high-speed, high-precision contrast AF system for photo and video recording. The lens is also compatible with the sensor drive at up to 240 fps to take full benefit of cameras with high-speed AF.

Optical Image Stabilization

An integrated Power OIS compensates camera shake to produce blur free images under a variety of situations - low light, hand held and in the telephoto range, reducing the need for a tripod. In addition, the 12-60mm G Vario lens is compatible with Panasonic cameras featuring Dual Image Stabilization for enhanced vibration control and improved image quality.

4K Video Recording

Capable of high speed and precise auto-focusing, the Lumix G Vario 12-60mm f/3.5-5.6 can deliver high resolution images as well as record vibrant ultra 4K videos. In-built video support eliminates the effect of sudden exposure variations through smooth aperture adjustments producing impressive 4K video recording. Utilising a super-silent drive motor enhances the quality of audio recording.

Produces Attractive Bokeh

Round diaphragms formed with seven aperture blades create a beautiful bokeh effect in the out-of-focus areas when shooting with a wide aperture.

Weather Resistant Construction

A weather-sealed design gives the interior of the lens protection against dust and rain. When used with the weather-sealed Lumix G cameras, the combination is suitable for outdoor usage and shooting under challenging weather conditions.

Compact and Light Weight

Complementing the small form factor of Mirrorless Cameras, the Panasonic Lumix G Vario 12-60 mm f/3.5-5.6 ASPH Power OIS lens is engineered as a compact, lightweight lens packed with powerful features. Weighing a mere 210gms, the lens is ideal for travel enthusiasts and photographers on the move.
