    The Panasonic LUMIX G X VARIO 12-35mm (H-HS12035) represents a next step in digital interchangeable zoom lens design for LUMIX G Series cameras.  It’s the first Lumix G VARIO constant F2.8 zoom suitable for professionals and enthusiasts capturing a wide range of scenes from dynamic landscapes to available light and studio lit portraits.

     

     

    X Series Design

     

    Panasonic’s long time collaboration with Leica inspired a uniquely LUMIX in-house design for a premium lens series exclusively for LUMIX G Series Micro Four Thirds mirrorless cameras. With the X Series Lenses, LUMIX is blending its own unique mix of broadcast video and advanced mirrorless camera technologies into a premium lens line. In several X Series models LUMIX blended forward looking features like advanced near silent Power Zoom (PZ Models) and advanced POWER O.I.S. support for improved video capture. The 12-35mm X lens features a professional grade constant aperture in a compact sealed body design suitable for professional studio photography. (LUMIX G X VARIO 12-35mm, H-HS12035, 35mm camera equivalent: 24-70mm).

    Nano Surface Coating

    The LUMIX G X VARIO 12-35mm / F2.8 lens  incorporates Panasonic’s unique Nano Surface Coating technology which minimizes reflections through the entire visual range (380nm-780nm), resulting in a dramatic reduction of ghosts and flare for extremely clear picture quality.  


    Travel Light and Protected from Natures Elements

    Boasting outstanding compactness, the LUMIX G X VARIO 12-35mm / F2.8 lens is approximately 73.8mm in length and 10.76oz in weight, resulting in extreme mobility.  Additionally with a rubber ring on the lens mount, the new lens is designed to stand against moisture and dust making it ideal for outdoor photography enthusiasts. A highly reliable metal mount endures long time use.


    Professional Grade Glass

    The LUMIX G X VARIO 12-35mm / F2.8 lens system is comprised of 14 lenses in 9 groups.  The UED (Ultra Extra-Low Dispersion) glass minimizes chromatic aberration while the UHR (Ultra High Refractive) lens realizes high descriptive performance from corner to corner.  Featuring high contrast and resolution from the center to corner at entire zoom range, the new LUMIX G X VARIO 12-35mm/F2,8 ASPH./POWER O.I.S. lens has the ability to capture the details of scenery or portrait with rich perspective.

    Advanced Focusing and Aperture Blade Design

    The lens’ superior inner focus system provides for excellent resolution and contrast without changing the overall length from full life-size magnification to infinity.  Seven blades give the aperture a rounded shape that produces an attractively smooth defocus effect in out-of-focus areas when shooting at larger aperture settings.  When mounted on any LUMIX G Micro System camera body, users can take advantage of the high-speed, high-precisions Contrast AF (Autofocus) system.  

     

    POWER O.I.S. for Improved HD Video Support

     

    The lens’ integrates POWER O.I.S. (Optical Image Stabilizer) which effectively compensates for both small, fast movement and large, slow movement, making it easy to shoot extremely clear photos even in low-lit situations such as at night or indoors. Adopting an inner focus system driven by a stepping motor, the lens’ superior design provides smooth and near silent focusing action which is ideal for both picture and video recording.

    H-HS12035 is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 12.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice Lens This is my everyday lens as its fast and works in most conditions. Lens is used for both pic and video.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from High Quality Lens This is my first lens to go with my first mft's camera (GH4). I was worried that the fitting was very tight with the lens mount, but was assured by support that it is supposed to fit snug. Performance wise, it handles chromatic aberrations well wide open. It has fast focusing, smooth focus ring, and compact in size. I use this as an all around lens for video and occasional photos. I could have opted to go with prime lenses first, but this is a highly regarded lens and I agree. It is not uber great, but it is a good overall and high quality choice with decent OIS.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Pictures, even at low light I bought a Lumix DMC-GH3 with a kit lens. The kit lens works great outside (in daylight), but the zoom was so limited, so I bought this LUMIX® G X VARIO 12-35mm / F2.8 ASPH. Lens. I've used it for both pictures and video and have been very pleased by the quality compared to the kit lens. This past weekend I was asked to shoot some pictures for a church (in low light - no flash). I shot closeups of the band playing in practice, then during the meeting from a longer distance. The G X series works much better than the less expensive lens. The darker portions of the picture were still clear, not distorted due to low light (like my other lens). It's not a cheap lens, but I'd say it's worth the investment. I will say, it has a tendency to overexpose when using automatic settings, but the color and clarity are awesome.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Extremely Versatile I have used this lens for 8 months now and it has hardly comes off of my camera, a GX7. The lens covers the range that is most useful to me and its fast F2.8 aperature and sharp results satisfy most of my shooting needs.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Must-have This is the perfect companion to a GH4. In the size of an APS-C SLR kit zoom, you get a very refined 2.8 zoom with real quality feel. It may not be the ideal match to a really compact body or if you really want to travel light (try 12-32 for that), but for most GH-series users, this is the standard zoom to have at a good price for what you get. f/2.8 may not give you massive dof control on m43, but it is more useful for everyday shooting that it is on a larger format DSLR and this lens is sharp wide open across the range and frame and with stabilization to really help the smaller format sensors in low-light. I wish it would to a clickless constant-aperture zoom-in in video mode and that Panasonic would offer a 2k f/2 OIS lens that one could dream about, but for most shooters, this is really the standard zoom to get.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Go To Lens This is my go to lens for everyday stills and video.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Mixed feelings Overall good and versatile lens. One great disadvantage is that this lens is not parfocal, i.e. focus point is shifting when zooming. Also missing: extension tubes

    • How do I install firmware in my camera using an SD card?
      Digital Still Camera Firmware Update Guide.

      1) Preparation before attempting the update.

      A. Make sure the camera's battery is completely charged. If the battery is not completely charged the firmware update will not begin. Format the SD memory card in the camera, then take a couple of pictures.
      B. Turn off the camera.

      2) Copying the Firmware to your memory card.
      A. Download the latest firmware update for your model by clicking on the "Download Ver. X.X " link to a location on your computer (we recommend the "Desktop").
      B. If your computer has a media reader, please insert your formatted SD Card from your camera.
      C. Open the zipped firmware file that you downloaded to the desktop.

      D. For"PC" users, locate your SD Card by clicking on, or opening the"My Computer" or"Computer" on your desktop or your"Start" menu. For"Mac" users, can use"Finder" if the drive does not mount to your desktop.

      E."Drag" to Copy and Paste" the .bin file from the opened folder to the drive with the SD Card showing in your"My Computer" window for"PC" users and"Finder" or"Drive" in Macs. This will copy the file to the card.

      F. If you choose to leave the SD Card in your camera, connect the camera to the PC with the USB cable. Turn the camera on and set it to"Playback" mode. Then select"PC" on the LCD screen. Drag the .bin file from the opened folder to the device that either says Panasonic or mass storage to complete the transfer.

      G."SDXC cards, 32GB or larger, require special card readers. Depending on your PC, and the age of its operating system, you may not be able to directly write to such large cards. If your PC asks you to format the card, DO NOT, this is one indication that your system is not compatible with the newer larger memory cards. In this case a smaller card, 16GB or smaller should be used.

      A. Turn the Camera off, insert the SD Card if you copied the firmware to the card while inserted into the computer.

      B. Turn the Camera power on and press the"Playback" button. The camera's LCD screen should now be showing a screen asking if you desire to"Update" the firmware. Highlight"Yes" and press the"Menu/Set" button.
