Klaus Schroiff has just posted a detailed review of the new released Panasonic Lumix G 12-60mm f/3.5-5.6 ASPH. POWER O.I.S lens (Amazon/B&H/Adorama/eBay) at the Photozone. This new 5X zoom compact and light weather resisting lens has many pros.

AF operations are also silent (and accurate anyway). The Power OIS (image stabilizer) is efficient albeit a little inferior to -say- Canon or Nikon. However, at least Panasonic GX8/85/80 users can take advantage of dual IS (body+lens IS)....”
