Great starter/walkaround lens for BMPCC

tfedward, Amazon
28 October 2014
  • 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...

Nice lens

MDGColorado, Amazon

  • Summary: This is the highly-regarded first version of Panasonic's kit lens. It has a quality appearance, smooth zoom ring (just try the zoom action on entry-level Canon / Nikon DSLR lenses for comparison), well-damped focus, metal camera interface, and good sharp optics.

Sharp but long 'n skinny

  • Summary: I have an Olympus E-P3 with 17mm 2.8 pancake. I love the pancake for candids and being able to carry the camera in my coat pocket, but wanted a zoom for flexible outdoor shooting. After shopping around the Panasonic 14-45 landed on my doorstep.

Very Good Lens

A. T Mauro "amauro@indiana.edu", Amazon
18 February 2012
  • Summary: This lens used to be the kit lens for the GH1, but now is just sold separately. It cost a little more than the 14-42, but is worth the extra money. One drawback of this lens though, is its plastic cheap feeling body, but then again this isn't a thousand dollar lens.
