Excerpt: The price only seems high until you see what it does, then you understand the value. I like it better than my old Canon 24-105mm. Well built, and perfectly balanced with the Lumix GH3. Vibration reduction is good for 2 stops. Fast, quiet AF. Compact, unobtrusive size is welcome for shooting documentary style.
Summary: Excellent all around lens that now sits permanently on my GH3. If used on this camera, I've found that you don't really need its sister lens of 35-100 as you can use the crop mode on your camera and extend the range! Just use the crop mode on one of your custom buttons and voila, you have two lenses in one!!! You can thank me later!
Excerpt: I like it a lot, before this i had the 20mm 1.7 and the 40-200 4-5.6 and this lens makes an amazing difference in video, i like the variety of shots i can get with this and still have DOF, i have recomended this lens already. Price is worth it. I use it with GH2 and GH3, planning to use it with Cinema Pocket soon, very soon.
Summary: I use this lens on my Panasonic GH3 as well as Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera. Excellent for photos and video. Great contrast and sharpness, also the stabilization built into the lens really helps against micro jitters when shooting. This lens is expensive but honestly it is one of the best you can buy for the camera. The only thing I wish was it were a faster lens, F/2.8 is good but if it could have achieve F/2.0 then it would have been better.
Excerpt: I bought this lens to compliment my other two lenses - the Lumix G 35-100mm f/2.8 and the Lumix G 20mm f/1.7. I own the Panasonic GH3 camera body and these are all great lenses for that camera.<br /><br />I intended to mostly shoot video but have had a lot of fun working with this lens for still pics, too. I recently took a trip with my gear and the 12-35mm lens stayed on my camera the most. It gave me greater options as the longer lens was too close at times.
One of the leaders in sales in lens line m4 / 3. Should be in every :)

Summary: 12-35/2, 8 bought it because it is one of the best lenses on m4 / 3 The lens is perfect promptness of new production technology and excellent design. Low weight and small size, great stabilizer. Advise the owner of the goods cameras m4 / 3.
Excerpt: I only use this lens for video, so still photographers can ignore all of this. This is one of the widest zooms you can get for the BMPCC and if you need image stabilization there are very few options (and the OIS is excellent on this lens). We do a lot of hand held interviews for a web series and this is a great lens for that. The zoom range is ideal with the 2.88 crop factor the speed of the lens is great and works well for interiors with little additional lighting.
