First review of the GH3’s kit lens? Panasonic 12-35mm GX Vario F2.8

The weather sealed 12-35mm is Panasonic’s new top of the range Lumix zoom with a constant F2.8 aperture. It’s also the lens most likely to be offered with the (also expected to be weather sealed) GH3. Panasonic have taken a huge step with build quality on this lens and I’m expecting the GH3 to be a big improvement in this area as well.

DSLR Magazine have taken a look at the new lens, and here’s my view on it.

GH3 to have emphasis on low light performance, new EVF technologies

Panasonic are in talks with Epson to provide cutting edge new display technology for the EVF in the GH3.

Now they say, it is a ‘flagship’ and ‘very important’.

Panasonic 14mm F2.5 pancake lens review

The Lumix 14mm F2.5 is the smallest interchangeable digital camera lens ever made. Smaller than even the Lumix 20mm F1.7 and much lighter, it is even rather well built for a mere ‘kit lens’. Like the excellent 20mm which came with the GF1, the 14mm is bundled with the GF2 and that represents fantastic value, since the lens retails for over £250 on it’s own.
