Ephotozine review of PL 12-60
Leica DG Vario-Elmarit 12-60mm f/2.8-4.0 ASPH Review
I want it!!
I had not intended to check out any lenses while at Nelson Photo today and I did not have my camera with me. I saw a box with 12-60mm and asked to see it. He put the lens on a E-M10 Mk II and it felt very comfortable. The battery died so he put the lens on a Pen F, again the camera/lens felt very good in hand.
I was surprised the lens is barely bigger than the Olympus 12-50mm lens! It felt very good, extremely smooth manual focus, very nice feel on the zoon ring. Easy to access buttons to change Manual/AF and OIS On/Off. It focus quickly, is very quiet, and from what little I could tell from zooming on the LCD, I’m going to guess the IQ is every bit as good as the Olympus 4/3s version.
Almost carried it out the door! He was opening a box for the 12mm f/1.4 – it was leave then or I’d end up with two new lenses. When I get rid of some lenses, the 12-60mm is definitely on my list.
Somewhat intrigued by this, it has passed under the radar for me. Still hankering for the 12-35 f:2.8 but the 12-60 do hold some appeal, even if it is very different.
