    I just got the lens together with the GX-8. We went to the pumpkin patch yesterday.

    After a week or so of use, I have to agree that 12-60 is not great on the tele end, but it is adequate. On the other hand, it is a very nice, weather-proof, wide angle (12-20) zoom, with the option of going longer if I want. And I paid $0 for it (bundled with the GX8). :2thumbs:

    Lenstip's Polish website posted their review, which shows weaker results at the tele end:

    I took this shot with the GX85+12-60 combo, Nissin i40 external flash triggered with the onboard flash (no TTL as Panasonic canceled that ability with the internal flash), this one's at 50mm f/5.6 ISO400 1/60s, the lens is still sharp at this setting unlike some review suggested being soft towards its end, and ACR does a perfect job automatically handling moire, if any, comes with the AA filter-less sensor in the camera, there's no moire or artifacts in the fabric in sharp focus.

    something to say about the 12-60 lens, it's so fast in operation, I couldn't have captured this if the 12-32 lens were used. there's absolutely no lag during CAF burst, no lag stopping down apertures, no hesitation in AF in good light, which is so amazing for a kit lens.

    a test of bokeh of the 12-60 lens at its max zoom and aperture. it is what it is, no surprise here.

    Taking full advantage of the weather resistance of this lens with the GX8. Last game of the season...

    Yes that sums it up nicely. I'm a cheap photographer ... ;-)

    I would rather say, a very capable photographer, and besides, cheap is good.

    Thanks but too much praise. We agree on cheap though. For general photography any 12 megapixel camera and standard prime will do.
