The Panasonic Lumix G 12-35mm f/2.8 II ASPH Power OIS Lens is impressive for the sheer versatility it offers. Spanning wide-angle, standard and medium telephoto shooting angles – equivalent to a 24-70mm focal length range – it’s an ideal pick for everything from outdoor landscapes to travel photography, portraits and indoor shots in low light. The bright f/2.8 aperture is also achievable over the entire zoom range, offering greater control over depth of field to create a creamy bokeh and, essentially, helping you to take exactly the kind shot you have in mind.
The Panasonic Lumix G 12-35mm f/2.8 II ASPH Power OIS Lens is a powerhouse when it comes to video work and supports all video features during recording to deliver outstanding 4K footage. Smooth changes in aperture ensure gradual exposure transitions that feel natural, and stunning AF performance that is fast yet silent allows total focusing precision that keeps up with your subjects, without making a sound in your audio.
Whether you’ve carefully set up your shot or it’s a spur of the moment click of the shutter, the POWER Optical Image Stabilisation (P.O.I.S.) built into this Panasonic lens will ensure you capture it in exceptional detail as the moment plays out, fast or slow. Compensating shake and vibrations to deliver crisp images that boast pure clarity, this stabilisation technology allows you more freedom and shooting flexibility – and less need for a tripod.
The Panasonic Lumix G 12-35mm f/2.8 II ASPH Power OIS Lens flaunts a sophisticated design that minimises aberrations and distortions while enhancing colour accuracy and contrast in the final image. This is thanks to the extra control offered by a series of aspherical, low dispersion, and high refractive index glass elements incorporated into the lens construction. A Nano Surface Coating also offsets ghosting and flare. These superior quality optical design features make this lens capable of delivering outstanding images time and time again.
Step out for a day of shooting knowing your lens can take on every shooting condition, even when the weather takes a turn for the worse. With a splash- and dust-proof construction, this Panasonic lens is also freeze-proof – able to take on cold temperatures down to negative-10-degrees Celsius. So whether you’re off roaming the planet and find yourself in snowy winter conditions, you want to get up close to a waterfall or you’re shooting on a sandy beach, rest easy knowing your lens can take on the elements.
