Cheap but Very Good!

fair review, Amazon

  • Summary: It took a while to appreciate having this lens on my OM-D E-M5. It worked well from the start, but after several months, its sharpness and overall performance really started to become obvious. It focuses quickly, requires very little post with RAW files to get very good images.

  • Summary: I purchased this lens for use with my Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera to use in run & gun situations where the autofocus and auto aperture and optical image stabilization functions will be an asset.

  • Summary: First off let me just say that this lens fits my needs which is perfect but I'm blown away by how fast it got to me! I ordered it two days ago (standard) and it was suppose to arrive on Friday. No complaints here though! I'm truly satisfied. No damages!

My perspective: Panasonic 14-45mm vs Panasonic 14-42mm

  • Summary: 14-45mm is hands down superior to the kit 14-42mm in construction and smooth function. My 14-42 has a stiff/sticky, cheap feeling zoom action. The 14-45mm does not leave the kit lens impression (which it used to be) at all, and is clearly of superior design and execution.

Great starter/walkaround lens for BMPCC

  • Summary: I actually use this lens on my BMPCC (Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera), so keep that in mind for this review. Pros: -Pretty good OIS for handheld shots. -Physical OIS switch. Even with the new firmware on the BMPCC that powers OIS lenses without a switch, I still prefer having the OIS switch to turn...

Love it. Definitely better than my "stiff" kit 14-42mm ...

  • Summary: Love it. Definitely better than my "stiff" kit 14-42mm lens that was hard to use with the typical jerky lens extension. Foto quality is good, worth changing over.

This does seem marginally better than the 14-42

  • Summary: Try the new 12-32, built for the GM1, before you praise this one to the skies. This does seem marginally better than the 14-42, but not the game changer that many are calling it.

Panasonic 14-45 lens. Being a tad longer i was really hoping that the range would make the purchase worthwhile and it did.
