Shutter shock with my Panasonic G3 under certain conditions.

  • Excerpt: I love the size of this lens. It is unbelievably tiny. It performs well at 12mm under all conditions. I like the image stabilization. However, at 32mm mounted on my G3, it has terrible shutter shock at typically usable shutter speeds.
  • Pros: Lightweight
  • Cons: Blurry Focus

Great lens and a great value

  • Summary: This is an amazingly compact lens and very sharp. It does not disappoint. A great value for the price. I have this lens and the 35-100mm f4 and a Panny GF7 and it makes an incredibly small kit. The image quality I get is top notch, lots of detail across the field. Love this lens!

Nicely compact, but lacks features

BS Buster, B&H Photo
22 September 2015
  • Excerpt: This lens is compact and lightweight, which were my primary considerations for purchasing it. Its companion lens is the Lumix G 35-100mm f/4-5.6, which I purchased previously. This 12-32mm f/3.5-5.6 is adequately sharp for its purpose.
  • Pros: Compact, Lightweight
  • Cons: No lens hood, No Manual Focus

Great lens for the GX7

16 September 2015
  • Excerpt: I shoot with the Lumix DMC-GX7 and the DMC-GX8, and while I like this lens on the latter, the 12-32 is perfect on the GX7. It's small, very sharp, and wider than the 14-140 on my GX8.
  • Pros: Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Sharp, Small

nice for zoom

F. Slowinski, Amazon
21 July 2015
  • Summary: nice for zoom, but for focusing can be a pain, if manual focus on lens is crucial don't buy, you have to rely on auto focus, touch screen focus, or strange focusing system, this is not a normal lens!

Great Wide Angle Solution

wrytre, Amazon
13 July 2015
  • Summary: This is a great wide angle lens. No blur at the edges. Worth the money. Forget the converters. Spring for the real deal. I used this to do a bunch of group shots -- up to 75 -- it worked great.

Decent "average" lens

Brandon Zehm, Amazon
7 July 2015
  • Summary: It's an okay lens. The quality is fine, but I realized that I never use this because I'd rather shoot with a more exotic lens like the Olympus 9-18mm or 45mm prime. This lens is just like the lens on most point-n-shoot cameras, so if you want photos like everyone else's then buy this.

Wonderful lens....

Dante, B&H Photo
18 March 2015
  • Excerpt: I needed a lens that had a 12mm focal point micro four thirds to use on my Olympus Pen EP-2 for landscape pictures. Olympus offers an outstanding 12mm prime lens as well as their 9-18mm zoom but the price points are prohibitive for my needs even though I'm an enthusiastic photographer.
  • Pros: Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight
