    I have noticed that no one has started a thread for this new lens.

    Got this lens just before a trip to Iceland. Here are some shots.

    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.

    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.
