Hi everyone,

I'm hoping someone can give me v some quick advice on the Pany kit lenses that are being bundled with the G85 and GX85.

The G85 bundle includes the 12-60 and 45-200 vs the GX85 bundle that includes the 12-32 and 45-150. Are all of these lenses standard kit quality lenses or does one of the bundles include a higher quality lens(s). Thanks for the help!

There are two versions of 12-60mm lenses. The kit lens is f/3.5 - f/5.6. The more expensive one is Panasonic Leica 12-60mm f/2.8 - 4.0. It is sometimes bundled for example with G9. With G85 I am quite sure the lens is the cheaper kit version.

All the lenses mentioned are decent, except some people don't like the 45-200mm. The 12-32 and 45-150mm are much smaller than the 12-60mm and 45-20mm lenses.
