    Cons: Corner sharpness at 12mm is quite weak due to the curved field: although it varies with focused distance, it definitely seems weak near infinity. Build quality is lower than other Panasonics eg zoom control much less smooth to use and ring eventually detaches!

    Pros: Center sharpness is excellent. 12mm Corner sharpness tests well at closer distances and improves as you move up through the focal lengths. Extremely compact and convenient. Good IS.

    Summary: A really useful lens in a super-convenient package. A shame that 12mm corner sharpness is so much weaker in real life than in tests!
