With a 35mm camera equivalent of 24-120mm, the Panasonic Leica DG Vario-Elmarit 12-60mm f/2.8-4 ASPH Power O.I.S Lens features 14 elements in 12 groups including four aspherical lenses and two extra-low dispersion lenses that reduce chromatic and aspherical aberrations. Even in low-light setting, this mirrorless camera lens performs well due to its f/2.8-4 maximum aperture. Meanwhile, unwanted reflections that can cause ghosting and flaring are blocked out by the Nano Surface Coatiing technology. If you are shooting on the move, especially in rugged terrain, the lens maintains a sharp image with the Power Optical Image Stabilization. On the other hand, its Linear Motor allows smooth autofocus and internal focus. Amazing bokeh photography can also be achieved using the nine-blade circular aperture. Its 62mm filter size can also be used with image-enhancing, screw-type lens filters. Beyond images, this digital camera lens also provides video support for Lumix cameras. Fortified by a dustproof and splashproof design, the Panasonic Leica DG Vario-Elmarit 12-60mm f/2.8-4 ASPH Power O.I.S Lens is also freezeproof for up to -10°C

Product Features in Detail

Lens construction
The four Aspherical (ASPH) lenses reduce size and weight, effectively preventing spherical and distortion aberration. Meanwhile, the two Extra-Low Dispersion (ED) lenses correct chromatic aberration rendering sharp, high-contrast images with clear colors from corner to corner.

Linear motor
The linear motor enables the camera to comply with the sensor drive at max. 240 fps to take full advantage of cameras with high-speed, high-precision Contrast AF. It also helps to reduce wobbling.

Capture the beauty around you

Finally, the long-awaited standard zoom lens from LEICA has arrived. This 12-60mm (35mm camera equivalent: 24-120mm) lens provides flexible framing from breathtaking landscapes to beautiful, mid-telephoto 60mm portraits. The stunning resolution of this LEICA DG lens renders everything clearly, from corner to corner.  Designed for reliable use even under poor weather conditions, this handy and high-quality lens is all you'll need for challenging.

Ultimate Leica optics
Opt for a LEICA DG lens and get the ultimate in optical quality and performance. They naturally meet the strict quality standards set by Leica Camera AG. Thanks to the sophisticated design of these lenses, you will enjoy brilliant clarity all the way to the edges of your photos. At the same time, distortions of all kind are prevented to enable precise, sharp picture rendering. This means you have the ideal tool for pro-level images in the palm of your hand.

Power O.I.S
Capture scenes carefree or at the spur of the moment. The optical image stabilisation (O.I.S.) technology built directly into the lens ensures your photos will look great, with sharp blur-free contours across the entire picture. Taking highly popular MEGA O.I.S. further, this advanced technology immediately compensates even large camera shake and vibrations that may occur in photography. So you can capture true-to-life scenes without the need for a tripod. In the end, you’ll enjoy wonderfully crisp images.

Clarity for all angles
Put an end to unwanted ghosting and flaring – the Nano Surface Coating has been applied to lenses within the system. This special, ultra-thin coating was developed originally by Panasonic to reduce bothersome reflections across the entire light spectrum. The result: crystal-clear pictures even if you’re photographing a light source in the dark.

Micro-step drive system
In addition to the silent operation achieved by the inner focus drive system, the micro-step drive system in the aperture control section helps the camera to smoothly catch up to brightness changes when zooming or panning. The optical design achieves exceptional barycentric stability to minimize image shifts during zooming. The AF tracking performance in zooming is also improved thanks to high-speed frame analysis for focus control.

Perfect video recording
With video support any user has everything they need for recording with their LUMIX camera. Not only does it perform smooth aperture changes so there are no sudden jumps in exposure, it also boasts a silent design for enhanced capture of the scene’s audio. What’s more, the stunning AF performance of this lens records excellent 4K video, where precise focusing is essential.

Splashproof. Dustproof. Freezeproof
Brave the elements in nearly any kind of weather or shooting location. This lens features a splash/dust/freezeproof construction that is tough enough to withstand even heavy field use. It protects the lens system inside from sand, rain and more, making it perfect for shooting under harsh conditions. Now there is nothing holding you back from capturing the creative nature or landscape shots you want.
