  • Excerpt: I bought this lens for a recent trip to farms in eastern WA. What a delightful surprise! It not only worked for the broad expanse of fields of waving wheat, but for close ups of barns and derelict cars. It may become my new "walk around" lens.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Easily Interchangeable, Lightweight

  • Summary: I must say this lens does meet my expectations. Relatively light weight, small size, and fantastic image quality out of this lens. Samples of my favourite shots out of this lens: https://www.flickr.com/photos/lowtec/14304921646/ https://www.flickr.com/photos/lowtec/8559458789/ https://www.flickr.com/photos/lowtec/9045744370/ Smooth operation and superb build quality and although the body will dinged and scratched easily with mild use, I much prefer a quality plastic...
  • Pros: Versatile, fast focus, decent sharpness in full zoom range
  • Cons: body scratched and dinged easily, corner sharpness could be better at wide end wide open, flare

A great all around lens

  • Excerpt: It is lightweight and small. It build well. The zoom ring is smooth. It is possible to do smooth zoom in and out during video. The focus ring is drived by wire, so it is very hard to do rack focus in video. That is a drawback of m4/3 lens. Focus is fast. It focus pretty close for a standard zoom lens. I was thinking purchase a macro lens. But I find I can get most of close up shot I want with this 12-35 lens. OIS is better than my 35-100 f2.8. Lens is sharp wide open.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight

Phenomenal lens

18 May 2014
  • Excerpt: Sharp, clear and bright in an incredibly useful zoom range. Somewhat pricey, but you certainly get what you pay for. After considering the Olympus EM-1 I invested in a full Lumix GX7 system and couldn't be happier with my decision. I also purchased the 7-14mm variable aperture and the 35-100mm f/2.8 zoom which provides a continuous shooting range of 14-200mm equivalent.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Great Handling, Lightweight, Rugged, Strong Construction
  • Cons: Expensive
