DPReview of Zuiko ED 12-60mm SWD Lens



Quote:
Indeed the Olympus Zuiko Digital ED 12-60mm F2.8-4.0 SWD is quite simply a superb lens, which can lay claim to being one of the very best standard zooms currently available.

After all the anxiety about various reviews, it's nice to have a pretty good one, especailly from dpreview

Looks good. The 14-42 has a review up too, coming out well praised.

Nice one well using one of these lens on the E3 I love it, still a little tricky to throw the background out of focus, but it certainly the best of the zooms for doing that.
Mind you I am being a bit hard as I have been using prime 35mm lens for the past few years

Some very positive reviews, I think. Well worth a careful read.
