Featuring a standard 12-60mm zoom range (equivalent to 24-120mm on 35mm format) the highly-anticipated Panasonic Leica DG 12-60mm f/2.8-4.0 ASPH Power OIS Lens makes it easy to tackle multi-purpose shooting in just one lens. From capturing breathtaking landscapes to stunning portraits with lovely bokeh and street photography, this lens offers endless shooting possibilities. It’s an ideal pick for photographers who are on the go and don’t want to lug around a full kit of equipment – also making it great lens for travellers.
Meeting strict standards to ensure superior optical quality and performance, this Panasonic Leica DG 12-60mm f/2.8-4.0 ASPH Power OIS Lens promises beautifully sharp images with accurate colour reproduction. Four aspherical elements and two extra-low dispersion elements work to minimise aberrations and distortions, ensuring crystal-clear clarity from edge-to-edge, while a special Nano Surface Coating eliminates unwanted ghosting and flaring. The result: images you will fall in love with – and your followers too.
With Panasonic’s POWER Optical Image Stabilisation (P.O.I.S.) technology built directly into this zoom lens, you can shoot with confidence knowing your images will look great across the entire zoom range when shooting handheld. Delivering compensation for even large vibrations and camera shake, this technology is a must. Whether you’re shooting in indoors environments, in low light conditions or at the telephoto end of the zoom sans tripod, you’ll notice the results with crisp, image detail.
Beautiful video footage comes naturally with this lens, thanks to a variety of features that make it perform just as well in 4K motion footage as it does for still photography. With a Linear Autofocus Motor that delivers impeccable AF, this lens can keep up with fast-moving subjects with accuracy and speed. Better yet, it does so silently, so you won’t discover any unwanted noise creeping into your audio. With smooth aperture changes too, you'll be pleased to see gradual exposure adjustments that look natural. Whether you’re panning from dark to light or tracking wildlife in nature, this Panasonic lens will deliver smooth handling and outstanding results.
Boasting protection from the elements with a splash- and dust-proof construction, the Panasonic Leica DG 12-60mm f/2.8-4.0 ASPH Power OIS Lens is the kind of lens you can take with you everywhere. It’s also freeze-proof – able to withstand cold climates down to temperatures as low as negative-10-degrees Celsius. Whether you’re off a ski holiday, embarking on an adventure in the Aussie Outback or you simply want a little extra protection on a drizzly day, just in case, enjoy the peace of mind this weather-sealed Panasonic lens offers.
