Hey guys, how's it going?
This is my video review of the Panasonic Leica 12-60mm f/2.8-4 lens, which has been one of our main lenses used for our wedding photography work.
We bought this lens one and a half years ago, after a thorough comparison between this and the Olympus 12-40mm f/2.8 PRO. In the end, it came down to, this lens was available to purchase instantly (pick-up at a physical location) and the Olympus would take 3 weeks to get to us, and we needed a lens for a project we had then, ASAP. Funny how it came down to that, eh?
Do I regret my decision to get this over the Olympus? No. I think in the end, f/2.8 wouldn't have been as big a factor as it seemed it would be. If we're in a low-light situation, we would have to use a much faster glass than a 2.8, or use lights. So, 1-stop of light wouldn't make all that much of a difference.
What do you guys think of the Panasonic Leica 12-60mm? I think, for me, it was the perfect compromise between focal-length coverage, aperture, and price.
