Total professional quality. I'll never need to upgrade in this focal range!

Summary: I shoot mostly nature video w/Panasonic GH3. First of all, this is a supremely sharp lens, throughout the zoom. It's built really well, is rather heavy (which I like) and has become my be-all lens in this focal length range. My only wish is it would sprout image stabilization. That said, it is an Olympus and though I'd never own an Oly for video, I like that their cameras have the stabilization in-camera. Boo points for Panasonic on that one.
Summary: It is a remarkably versital lens with impressive specifications. It performs beyond my expectations. I especially like wide-angle capability. Quality is great and price was very reasonable on e-Bay.
Great constructive, image quality, accurate, fast and quiet AF. Very GOOD!

Summary: I have in my arsenal Panasonic DMC-L10 with KIT lens Leica 14-50 mm f/3.8-5.6. The lens is good and the design and color. But the luminosity is weak. For a long time and a lot of reading reviews, articles and forums, I purchased a wide angle lens OZ 11-22 f/2.8, but considering the possibility of OZ 12-60 mm, made a firm decision that this lens is more versatile, and he was right.
Summary: The best part of this lens is that it focuses so much faster that the other Zuiko lenses I have, plus it works well in lower light situations but the trade off for the great quality comes in the size and weight, but i just love this lens for all it can do, so i put up with the increase in weight, Oh did I mention Macro capability, this lens is great. This lens could spoil you so bad you won't want to by anything that doesn't have the SWD focusing capabilities.
Summary: A zoom range that allows you to take beautifull landscapes with is very fast aperture f2.8 but also very good for portrait picture. Very fast, precise and silent focus. Nothing is perfect and the only issue is when using the lens at widest range (12) the flash is not usable will need an external flash. I would says it is a perfect all around lens with very high quality.
