Finally, the long-awaited standard zoom lens from LEICA has arrived. This 12-60mm (35mm camera equivalent: 24-120mm) lens provides flexible framing from breath-taking landscapes to beautiful, mid-telephoto 60mm portraits. The stunning resolution of this LEICA DG lens renders everything clearly, from corner to corner. Designed for reliable use even under poor weather conditions, this handy and high-quality lens is all you'll need for challenging.

LEICA DG LENS OPTICAL PERFORMANCE

Opt for a LEICA DG lens and get the ultimate in optical quality and performance. They naturally meet the strict quality standards set by Leica Camera AG. Thanks to the sophisticated design of these lenses, you will enjoy brilliant clarity all the way to the edges of your photos. At the same time, distortions of all kind are prevented to enable precise, sharp picture rendering. This means you have the ideal tool for pro-level images in the palm of your hand.

Splash/Dust/Freezeproof – more creative options

Brave the elements in nearly any kind of weather or shooting location. This lens features a splash/dust/Freezeproof construction that is tough enough to withstand even heavy field use. It protects the lens system inside from sand, rain and more, making it perfect for shooting under harsh conditions. Now there is nothing holding you back from capturing the creative nature or landscape shots you want.

POWER O.I.S.

Capture scenes carefree or at the spur of the moment. The optical image stabilisation (O.I.S.) technology built directly into the lens ensures your photos will look great, with sharp blur-free contours across the entire picture. Taking highly popular MEGA O.I.S. further, this advanced technology immediately compensates even large camera shake and vibrations that may occur in photography. So you can capture true-to-life scenes without the need for a tripod. In the end, you’ll enjoy wonderfully crisp images.

NANO SURFACE COATING

Put an end to unwanted ghosting and flaring – the Nano Surface Coating has been applied to lenses within the system. This special, ultra-thin coating was developed originally by Panasonic to reduce bothersome reflections across the entire light spectrum. The result: crystal-clear pictures even if you’re photographing a light source in the dark.

VIDEO SUPPORT

With video support any user has everything they need for recording with their LUMIX camera. Not only does it perform smooth aperture changes so there are no sudden jumps in exposure, it also boasts a silent design for enhanced capture of the scene’s audio. What’s more, the stunning AF performance of this lens records excellent 4K video, where precise focusing is essential.

LENS CONSTRUCTION

Aspherical (ASPH) lenses reduce size and weight, effectively preventing spherical and distortion aberration. Extra-Low Dispersion (ED) lenses correct chromatic aberration rendering sharp, high-contrast images with clear colours from corner to corner.

Great lens and I like it a lot, BUT it will 'trombone' between 40 and 55mm zoom pointing vertically up. This may not be a concern for many users, BUT it should NOT happen on a lens of this quality and price.

this is a cracking lens i have used it with both the Olympus OM DE10mk11 and now the Panasonic G9 and the sharpness continues to surprise me. Ok so its not cheap but you get what you pay for

I love my little LUMIX GX8 and teaming it with this lens creates a great combination. I used it for a full weekend shooting the Tall Ships Regatta in Greenwich and Woolwich and never had to change the lens. From wide shots to close up portraits this lens proved well up to the task.

Recent convert to G9. Just in time for Spring! Went to a RHS garden, shot a lot wide open. Sharp results, even tried to see what the image stablisation did, no problem at 15th second handheld

excellent lens, really happy with how versatile it is. the service from camera world was great, the lens wasn't in stock when I purchased it but they rang me with in an hour of ordering and explained and were really friendly and helpful :)

Good combination with GX9. Very useful zoom range and excellent close focus at max zoom. Veritably a do it all lens with a really solid feel to it. Wide aperture drops off very rapidly (as reported in many posts) so not a surprise but stops it getting 5 stars.

For me this was a really good deal with a quality zoom lens at a reasonable price. I intend to use it for travel. The 12 - 60 mm covers a good range from wide angle to zoom.
