      I still wonder what would be best between 1 zoom reasonably fast (constant F/2.8 would be fine, F/2.8-4 is the last "Ok" ) , or 2 / 3 very fast (F/1.7 or .8) & sharp primes, at focals covering the most important Fov (10 to 16 , then 24/25 , then eventually 50mm ), for low light (think I'll do a fair amount of it), as it's always better to be able to, to get faster shutter speed if needed, facilitate the lighting, consuming - battery on the LEDs, etc, for videos notably, where you can't do long exposure to save you from noise & low DR...

      That depends purely on your preferences and shooting style. I much prefer zoom lenses on M43, because of the size and portability.

      is 12mm wide enough for filming a stage event? Only for the wide shots. I have a other camcorder for the close ups.

      Thank you for demonstrating minimum f-stop change on Leica as it zooms in. I was looking to see what is the curve for that, and that demonstration is very helpful.

      Great comparison but I must ask is the Leica truly parfocal? After watching I researched online and canโ€™t seem to support this. Iโ€™d love to know which m43 lenses are parfocal, if any.

      The Hybrid Shooter thanks for the reminder. I had watched the video entirely, but then researched other parfocal lens possibilities, of which I didnโ€™t get far at all and after that forgot you had an actual video example. Thank you.

      I tested the Lecia 12-60mm f2.8-4 at 16mm vs the Sig 16 f1.4 both at f4 and they are identical. I cant tell the difference!
      Lecia 12-60mm vs Oly 40-150mm f2.8. At 60mm at f8 and the Lecia destroys the Oly!

      It's a 2.8 lens only at 12mm, though. Once you move even 1mm it starts to darken. In reality, I would count these as a f/5.6 and a f/4 lens. For a f/2.8 lens, one has to buy the 12-35 variant or the Olympus 12-40. And if I was to buy a f/4, I would probably give 150 euro more and take the 12-100 Olympus. It's heavier, but has more reach and better focusing ring for MF.

      The Hybrid Shooter In reply to Momchil Yordanov

      It is shown in the video. You can count it as you wish, but these are 2.8-4 and 3.5-5.6 lenses. Every lens is a compromise... 12-100 is optically not great, you loose dual IS and in-camera corrections if you use it on Panasonic, so I wouldn't consider it for Panasonic. I wouldn't consider Panasonic for Olympus for the same reasons.

      Good job, nice comparison. I've had the leica 12-60mm since it first came out, and I have it on my G9 as my "go to" lens. I use other panaleica lenses, 25mm, 45mm macro and 100-400mm, but the 12-60 is the one I use the most. Lovely build quality and the image quality is first class. Highly recommended ๐Ÿ‘

      With autofocus wouldn't the F3.5 lens appear to be parfocal, IE: could the camera keep the lens in focus while zooming?

      I unfortunately don't have that lens anymore, so I can't answer that.

      There is "something" about Pana Leica line, and you seem to elaborate well.. The contrast and the richness in color personalizes and differentiates this PanaLeica lines from Lumixs and other brands..

      I bought the Lumix 12-60mm and find it a brilliant lens on my G80. I did consider the Leica as I already have a Leica f1.4 25mm and it my favourite lens, but the high cost on the Leica 12-60 made my mind up to buy the Lumix. I'm happy with my choice.
