Panasonic Patents 12-100mm F/4.0-5.8 M4/3 Lens

A patent has appeared which shows that Panasonic are developing a 12-100mm F/4.0-5.8 lens for their micro four-thirds cameras such as the GX8. 12-100mm gives the lens a 35mm equivalent focal range of 24-200mm, an extremely useful range for users looking for flexibility. The Aperture size of 4.0-5.8 whilst not fast, should help keep the price of the unit down, and I wouldn’t be surprised to see this lens bundled with future Panasonic micro four thirds cameras. If the balance of price and quality can be achieved this should be a popular lens.
