The L stands for Lumix, and is even printed on the front of the lens.
Every Panasonic m43 lens is a Lumix lens. Not every Panasonic m43 lens is a Leica lens; hence the PL vs P convention.

It's quite a versatile lens. All with the GX85.

I only got this lens two days ago, but am liking it so far on my G80.

Tomorrow is my grandson Eddie's 5th birthday. He's having a Hot Wheels party on Saturday. I made this photo out at the drag strip last summer when a very nice driver decided Eddie should sit in her dragster. I sent the full resolution photo to Nation's Photo lab and had them enlarge it to 20 X 30 as a decoration for his party.

I was very concerned about how it would turn out, as there is no time to try again if it failed. I am astounded at how clear and sharp the printed photo is in that size. It is beautiful. Anyone who thinks this lens isn't worth the cost is nuts. This is especially true with the current used pricing. This is the best $175 I've ever spent on photo gear.

And anyone who thinks you can't enlarge photos made with 'small sensor' cameras to a satisfactory result is just as nuts. The next person that tells me such loses all credibility.

Piffle.

Round and round she goes
I realize that this was posted some time ago but I am trying to help my sister in law ease out of using the IA setting on her new G85. I pointed her to this forum because she has the 12-60 lens and I wanted her to see what it could do. She chose this picture and said "okay, how do I do that?".:hmmm: I did explain that just coming off IA she might want to set her sights a bit lower to start. Then I got curious. How did @yorik do that?

I'm going to guess to see how close I get, and then someone that really knows can answer.

I think it's a combination of panning and a shallow DOF. If you notice, the only thing that's really in focus is most of the girl and part of the horse. Even her foot and the horse's head are OOF. Because the carousel is round and she's at the closest point, everything else is farther away. It appears he may have shot that through a window, and it being nearer is also OOF. I might also guess there's some creative blurring applied in post.

As @Brownie said, I was panning to keep my daughter in focus and snapped the photo when she was right in front of me.... I had several tries throughout the ride, so I was able to get it more or less right eventually. I don't remember if I added any blur in post. It is possible, but I don't think so, as there was quite a bit of natural motion blur.

Another thing that you might suggest to your sister is to use something like the 4K (or 6K) photo mode for something like this.
