New Panasonic 12-60mm f/4.5-5.6 patent.
Egami just discovered a new Panasonic lens describing a quite unspectacular new micro Four Thirds lens. It is a 12-60mm f/4.5-5.6 with inner focusing, inner zoom and O.I.S. zoom. While the zoom range is certainly interesting I don’t get it why Panasonic wants to make it that slow. The only reason would be if the lens would have the size of the 14-42mm X pancake but it’s it not the case here (lens length is 10cm!). Pana/Oly just try to get inspiration from the [shoplink 23681 ebay]Olympus Zuiko 12-60mm f/2.8-4.0 (here on eBay)[/shoplink] if you don’t know how to do it right :) The lens is that much loved that is has an average review of 5 stars out of 5 at Amazon US (Click here).
