Review Panasonic 12-32mm (m43)
The Panasonic 12-32 mm lens is a super light and spectacularly compact lens with a Micro Four Thirds (MFT) mount. In 35 mm-equivalent (mm @ FF) the range is 24-64 mm, so a standard zoom with true wide angle. And that is special. Wide-angle zoom lenses with this mount are still rare, and the compact dimensions make the lens extra attractive. That is why this is a welcome addition to the MFT offerings.
The brightness is comparable to the previously released 14-42 mm kit lenses from Panasonic. The largest lens aperture is f/3.5 in wide angle and f/5.6 in the telephoto position. With this lens, a mirrorless system camera almost becomes a compact camera, since this lens is so small. Can such a small lens be just as good as a standard zoom?
