    Best all-around run-gun lens

    I've purchased many lens's for my new Panasonic GH5. Each with a specific reason. This is on par, and probably a step below, the similar priced 12-35 f2.8. I say this, because with a variable aperture vs the constant, your not going to get the same shot throughout the zoom. And even though I also own the 35-100mm, one might think I'd be crazy to not have gotten the 12-35mm, to get the constant f.28 throughout. But I say, even with the 35-100mm in my collection as well, I am 100% firm in my decision to pick up this lens. The 35-100mm is a great portrait, and the 12-35 is a great close zoom lens. The 12-60mm is a great 75%'er. What is a 75%'er you ask, why its the lens that sits on my camera 75% of the time. With the added range to 60mm vs the 30mm, even though its at a higher aperture, it easily falls in the range of what I shoot. Granted between 35mm and 60mm its got going to give as nice low light, quick shots, or depth of field vs a constant 2.8. But it doesn't need to. If I know I'm going for longer zoom, I plan and bring my 35-100mm. But I don't want to 'need' to bring 2 lens's with me everywhere I go. If I need the 2.8, I just stay at the 18mm range and zoom in post, but going up to 60mm, gives me a greater chance I'm not going to miss something, while also not needing to swap out lens's.

    This lens is very nice. It has a good range and is reasonably fast when wide open. The auto focus and image stabilization works GREAT with the GH5. I truly believe that those who say auto focus on the GH5 isn't good have not tried it with this lens attached. The only con I find with this lens is that it only shoots at 2.8 at 12mm......you barely zoom in and the f stop instantly decreases. If the lens were faster the while way thru I'd give it an A+

    The perfect walkaround lens. Extended range. Image stabilization is awesome with the Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera. There is almost no lens flaring. There is very little that this lens cannot do. I use it for portraits, interviews, wide walkatound and closeups.

    Possibly the best lens available for the GH5. Sharp, great color and contrast, well built.... only thing to make it nicer would be a constant aperture but the. It would probably cost and weigh twice as much.

    If you need an all around lens this is your jack of all trades! It is a great walk around or travel lens and it is perfect for Video purposes.
