I am trying to sort this out as possible IR all purpose lens.

I wonder if anyone has experience with this or the 12-60mm f3.5/5.6 for infrared photography.

I use it for much of my shooting, including on my full spectrum Panasonic G1. It works well, though I find it is like other zooms a little prone to hot spots. I deal with these in PP. Asa far as being sharp in IR goes I haven't had any complaints. I'll find some images to post tomorrow, not on my Mac at the moment.

sensitivity to "invisible light" as it's called is down to the UV/IR blockers that are used over the CCD, not usually a characteristic of the lens itself.

In the councils of government, we must guard against the acquisition of unwarranted influence, whether sought or unsought, by the military industrial complex. The potential for the disastrous rise of misplaced power exists and will persist. We must never let the weight of this combination endanger our liberties or democratic processes. We should take nothing for granted. Only an alert and knowledgeable citizenry can compel the proper meshing of the huge industrial and military machinery of defense with our peaceful methods and goals, so that security and liberty may prosper together.
-Dwight D. Eisenhower, 1961
