In brief

Panasonic has launched its latest lens for its Lumix G series of interchangeable lens cameras (ILC), covering a versatile 12-35mm focal length (equivalent to 24-70mm in 35mm). It's dust- and splash-resistant, according to the company, with the addition of a nano surface coating to help reduce ghosting and flaring. The addition of this lens brings the Panasonic-branded Lumix lens collection to 15.

With a fixed f/2.8 maximum aperture throughout the focal length, this lens will appeal to anyone looking to upgrade their Micro Four Thirds lens collection, and, particularly, moving beyond the limitations of the kit lenses. There's also in-lens image stabilisation, thanks to the Power optical image stabiliser (OIS) system. No local pricing has been announced, but the lens will be available in July.
