Excellent Lens, highly recommended, top quality.

  • Summary: Pricey, however good quality and workmanship justifies cost! I am very satisfied with this lens, have taken about 300 pictures so far, does everything I want it to do. Clarity is excellent at all zoom levels. Installed UV Filter on it, more for protecting the lens itself than for any other reason.

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.

  • Summary: I wanted a faster lens than the kit lens and the quality of the Zuiko 12-60mm is widely recognized. It also has fast SWD focus which the kit lens lacked. My experience with this lens has been great it does almost everything I want with only a little bit of distortion at the wide end and it's easily...
