(FT4) There will be a Panasonic 12-32mm (non PZ) compact lens.



A source just shared some info on a new lens that will be launched along the new ultra-compact Panasonic G camera in early October! There will be a 12-32mm lens as compact as the current Panasonic X Vario PZ 14-42mm. But the new 12-32mm will not have the PZ function and is likely a tiny bit smaller than the current pancake zoom. Obviously this lens will be the kit lens of the ultracompact camera. Very small, very light and a tiny bit wider…sounds like the perfect companion for the new camera!

P.S.: Along the Panasonic G and 12-32mm ultra compact camera and lens there will be also the final release of the Nocticron 42,5mm lens.
