Our Verdict

With a wide aperture giving a beautiful defocus bokeh effect and high-speed performance combined with the versatility of the standard zoom length makes this Leica DG Vario-Elmarit lens the perfect everyday lens to cover most shooting situations.

In addition to the wide aperture, Panasonic's Power O.I.S. (Optical Image Stabiliser) system effectively compensates for hand shake and blurring which makes it easy to shoot even in low lighting environments.

The Leica DG Vario-Elmarit 12-60mm f/2.8-4.0 also works with the Dual I.S., 5-axis Dual I.S., and 5-axis Dual I.S. 2 systems on Panasonic Lumix G cameras.

This lens is built to withstand the harsh environments of professional use with a rugged, dust and splash-proof design and freeze-proof down to -10 degrees Celsius.

Additionally, the silent operation of the inner focus drive system, the micro-step drive system in the aperture control section make this lens excellent for video recording performance by helping the camera to smoothly catch up to brightness changes when zooming or panning, as well as achieving exceptional barycentric stability to minimise image shifts during zooming
