I had many reasons for acquiring the Panasonic 12-35 mm F2.8 lens. One was that I wanted to get a large depth of field (DoF) and a wider focal length. These two pictures demonstrate what is possible. They were both taken at a wide 12 mm focal length with one at F8 and the other at F10. The wide focal length is nice from a composition perspective but is even better at small apertures since I can get a great DoF with most of the image in focus. Both the wide angle and the DoF are critical aspects for landscape photographers.
