The LUMIX G VARIO 12-35mm F2.8 ASPH is relatively small and light for a
fast zoom lens covering a 35mm equivalent focal range of 24-70mm. Zoomed
out to the 70mm setting, it measures just over 10cms in length. An
extra 3cms is taken up by the supplied lens hood, which helps prevent
lens flare and also protects the protruding front element from scratches
and finger marks. Zooming is external, so the front does extend, from 8cms at 24mm to
10cms at 70mm. It’s quite light at 305 grams, despite its high-quality
construction which gives it a premium look and feel.
In terms of features, the lens has little to offer (aside from its fast
aperture, of course). There is no distance scale and no focus limiter,
although there is a handy image stabilisation switch for the Power O.I.S
system which helps to combat camera shake.
The LUMIX G VARIO 12-35mm F2.8 ASPH lens is predominantly made of metal
parts, including the barrel and the mount, which makes this the best
constructed Panasonic lens to date. Panasonic claims some degree of
weather resistance for this lens (splash/dust proof), and indeed you can
see a rubber seal around the lens mount.
The lens comes with a premium lens pouch and a petal-shaped lens hood in
the box. You can fit 58mm filters to this lens at the same time as
using the hood. At the 12mm end of the zoom range, the lens has a diagonal angle of view
of 84°, equivalent to that of a 24mm lens in a 35mm system. At the 35mm end, the angle of view is 34°, which is the same as that of a 70mm lens on a 35mm full-frame camera.
The LUMIX G VARIO 12-35mm F2.8 ASPH lens offers virtually silent
focusing thanks to the inclusion of a stepping motor. In use, we found
the system surprisingly quick on the DMC-G3 that we tested the lens
with. The lens also incorporates an inner focus system, good news for
filter users, as it means that it doesn’t rotate in use. This
combination of silent, quick focusing makes the lens well suited to
shooting both stills and video.
Manual focusing is possible in a focus-by-wire fashion. This should not
put you off using it as it feels pretty natural in use, and actually
enables the camera to display a magnified view of the subject
automatically, i.e. without your having to press a dedicated button or
enter the menu. The focus ring is slim but adequate for the job.
