A Look At The Panasonic 12-60mm f/2.8-f4 Zoom Lens For Micro Four Thirds Cameras

All zooms lenses are a compromise - the Panasonic Leica 12-60mm f/2.8-f4 zoom even compromises on the compromises. Does it fill a niche in the Micro Four Thirds lens system or is it a compromise too far?

Don't buy the Metabones & EF-M2! THIS is the cheapest speedbooster EVER!

Micro Four Thirds users rejoice! I have found the cheapest speedbooster on the PLANET and it actually has good optics. Find out why I use the Viltrox NF-M43x instead of the EF-M2 and saved hundreds of dollars over the much more expensive Metabones speedboosters. #MetabonesKiller Equipment in this video: Viltrox EF-M2: http://geni.us/vefm2 Viltrox NF-M43x: http://geni.us/nfm43x Side Note: This video is intended for video shooters.

Micro 4/3 Tips: Get Swirly Bokeh with these cheap lenses! ep.05

Get that swirly bokeh effect and a fast prime lens for $20-$40! I share the lenses I bought and tips on using them with example photos. The micro 4/3 system is ideal for these cheap cctv lenses because of their smaller sensor size yet excellent image quality.

My name is ALXMNR and I am a video engineer, audio engineer, DP/videographer and music producer for FL. On this channel I mostly do video related tech reviews, but I've got music based content coming soon.

In today's episode I explain how to get a 12-60mm F2.8-4 lens for under $300. This is only for the micro four thirds camera system. I know what you're thinking, but this is NOT click bait. There's no trickery involved. Just good ole fashioned deal hunting.

Panasonic currently offers two 12-60mm lenses, a f3.5-5.6 for around $500 and a F2.8-4 that you can ususally find for $900. They've also got a 12-35 f/2.8 for $800 and Olympus offers a 12-40 f/2.8 for about $700. That's expensive.

Make sure to watch the whole video to learn exactly how and where I managed to get this lens. Trust me, you can do it too.
