    Comments about Panasonic LUMIX G X VARIO 12-35mm / F2.8 ASPH Camera Lens:

    I bought a Lumix DMC-GH3 with a kit lens. The kit lens works great outside (in daylight), but the zoom was so limited, so I bought this LUMIX® G X VARIO 12-35mm / F2.8 ASPH. Lens. I've used it for both pictures and video and have been very pleased by the quality compared to the kit lens. This past weekend I was asked to shoot some pictures for a church (in low light - no flash). I shot closeups of the band playing in practice, then during the meeting from a longer distance. The G X series works much better than the less expensive lens. The darker portions of the picture were still clear, not distorted due to low light (like my other lens). It's not a cheap lens, but I'd say it's worth the investment. I will say, it has a tendency to overexpose when using automatic settings, but the color and clarity are awesome.

        I have used this lens for 8 months now and it has hardly comes off of my camera, a GX7. The lens covers the range that is most useful to me and its fast F2.8 aperature and sharp results satisfy most of my shooting needs.

            Comments about Panasonic LUMIX G X VARIO 12-35mm / F2.8 ASPH Camera Lens:

            This is the perfect companion to a GH4. In the size of an APS-C SLR kit zoom, you get a very refined 2.8 zoom with real quality feel. It may not be the ideal match to a really compact body or if you really want to travel light (try 12-32 for that), but for most GH-series users, this is the standard zoom to have at a good price for what you get. f/2.8 may not give you massive dof control on m43, but it is more useful for everyday shooting that it is on a larger format DSLR and this lens is sharp wide open across the range and frame and with stabilization to really help the smaller format sensors in low-light. I wish it would to a clickless constant-aperture zoom-in in video mode and that Panasonic would offer a 2k f/2 OIS lens that one could dream about, but for most shooters, this is really the standard zoom to get.

                  Overall good and versatile lens. One great disadvantage is that this lens is not parfocal, i.e. focus point is shifting when zooming. Also missing: extension tubes

                      Comments about Panasonic LUMIX G X VARIO 12-35mm / F2.8 ASPH Camera Lens:

                      I bought this lens for my long Europe vacation. Took more than 5000 pictures using G6 body. Very versatile. It easily withstood wind, sand and occasional splashes. I am still working through the shots but already did not regret a single minute that I owned the lens. I am an amateur, but I noticed very little distortion. 12 mm comes very handy inside buildings, compared to 14 mm on most kit lenses. 35 mm/F2.8 actually produces nice bokeh. Downsides: (minor)I could not operate manual focus ring with hood parked on the lens. I had to either remove the hood or attach it in working position thus making the camera bulkier. And the larger one is that the lens does not have Lightroom profile.

                        The optics for this lens are terrific. Even wide open it's a winner. However, I was unable to get a smooth zoom, even when using Zoom lever DMW-ZL1. It's now in for adjustment, and hopefully its zoom action will equal its optics when returned.
