Took a 3 day backpack trip this past week for a climb of Jenkins Mountain (13432') outside of Leadville, CO. The 12-45 is quite a bit more manageable backpacking than the 12-40. Of course, I hauled my 300 f4 Pro along, which kind of made up the gains switching from the 12-40 to the 12-45. 🤣

heading out - camp way in the distance.

And the reason for the 300 f/4 Pro - juvenile pika inspecting camera case....

Good for impromptu bug and flower photos.

First time out with my new 12-45mm and also first time posting on here, so please be kind!
I'm pretty pleased with it so far. It's solid, well-built and pretty sharp. Any issues are probably with my technique!

Also, does pretty well close-up as well. As others have mentioned the bokeh is pretty nice.

Welcome!

Man, you wouldn't expect a standard zoom f/4 lens on mu4/3 to have mentionable out-of-focus blur. But this thread shows some fine examples. I wonder if it is the close focussing capabilities combined with the smooth bokeh that gives them this often described "3d pop"?
