Lenstip reviews the 12-100mm PRO lens and says it “deserves a round of applause”

Lenstip tested the Olympus 12-100mm PRO lens and conlcudes:

To be honest the Olympus 12-100 mm surprised me very positively. I didn’t expect such good results. I was almost sure that at least for one focal length the image quality would be weak on the edges of the frame and the lens would fail in the category of flares as well. No such things happened and for that the constructors deserve a round of applause. You get a lens with a very wide range of focal lengths, a decent constant aperture fastness, one able to provide good quality images at every combination of aperture and focal length; additionally its autofocus is efficient and its optical stabilization performs very well indeed. Really, it would be difficult to demand anything more. Good job!

New Panasonic-Leica 12-60mm lens is now in Stock at Amazon.de (new review by ePhotozine)


The new Panasonic-Leica 12-60mm lens is in Stock for the first time in Europe via Amazon.de. It will ship next month at Amazon, BHphoto, Adorama, Amazon.co.uk, Amazon.fr.

ePhotozine posted the full lens review and concludes:

A standard zoom is a very useful lens and one that offers a high level of performance even more so. The Leica DG Vario-Elmarit 12-60mm f/2.8-4 Asph is a remarkably fine lens and despite the higher price that it demands gives excellent VFM. Definitely this is a very strong contender if looking for a versatile all purpose Micro Four Thirds zoom.
