Standard zoom lens (12-35mm), featuring F2.8 brightness across the entire zoom range

The premium ‘X’ series range of Lumix lenses continues to expand with the introduction of the Lumix G X Vario 12-35mm / F2.8 ASPH. / POWER O.I.S. (35 mm camera equivalent: 24-70mm). This Micro 4/3rds interchangeable standard zoom lens provides superb image rendering with a continuous F2.8 brightness across the entire zoom range. Due to the speed of this lens it allows you to maintain shutter speeds for hand held shooting in lower light conditions. Also this lens is ideal for getting images with a shallow depth of field.

Suppress handshake and eliminate blur with POWER O.I.S.

The POWER O.I.S. (Optical Image Stabiliser), which is newly integrated in the lens effectively, compensates for not only small, fast movements but also large, slow ones, making it easy to shoot very clear shots even in low-lit situations such as night scenes or indoors.

Superior optical technology for superb image rendering

The zoom lens comprises 14 lenses in 9 groups. The UED (Ultra Extra-Low Dispersion) lens minimises chromatic aberration while the UHR (Ultra High Reflective) lens realises high descriptive performance from corner to corner. It features high contrast and resolution from the centre to the corner at the entire zoom range. The inclusion of 4 aspherical lenses achieves a downsized lens unit that is extremely compact - measuring around 73.8 mm in length and around 305 g in weight for high mobility.

The superior inner focus system provides excellent resolution and contrast without changing its overall length from full life-size magnification to infinity. The inclusion of a stepping motor makes the focusing action smooth and silent for use in both photo and video recording. When mounted on Lumix G Micro System cameras, you can take advantage of the high-speed, high-precision Contrast AF system.

Nano Surface coating technology results in super clear images with reduced ghosts and flare

The lens features Panasonic's Nano Surface Coating technology. This minimises reflection across the entire visual light range, by applying an extra-low refractive index coating with a nano-sized structure on the surface of the lens. The result is amazingly clear images with dramatic reduction of ghosts and flare. The combination of a fast lens and the nanosurface coating allows for high contrast images and the seven blade aperture ensures a stunning bouquet.

Durable, reliable and light enough to carry with ease

The lens design is downsized, making it very compact for this class of lens at 305 grams; and is designed to be dust and splash resistant with a rubber ring on the lens mount. It has a sophisticated metallic finish and features a durable metal mount.


"This footage was shot over about an hour at my local market on Sunday morning. So yeah, it’s just home movies. I was literally grabbing shots where I could whilst I was shopping ! But, you do get to see what one man can do with a pocket cinema camera and a 12-35 Panasonic m4/3 zoom. I guess for those that like to shoot discretely, guerrilla or documentary style, this will give you a good sense of what you’re going to get. The same great DR and look has been inherited from the BMCC.

All this footage was shot using the FILM look. I set my exposure by ETTR and using the 100% zebra to indicate clipping. I had IS on all the time. I had a Hoya ND16 on as well to keep me at a slightly nicer stop. I set the rear monitor to VIDEO and then used focus peaking all the time."
