WARNING - Dust Ingress

the NUT, Amazon
26 November 2012
  • Summary: I bought this lens specifically for my wife's camera on our safari honeymoon. On the positive side the lens is solid, focuses quickly and takes pretty good pictures. However, after a couple of days on the safari we noticed dust inside the lens. On closer examination dust has entered the zoom lens and is present on most of the glass lenses inside. I think the dust entered whenever the lens is zooomed out as this sucks air in.

Performs OK with care

RupertTheBoffin, WEX

  • Summary: Autofocus is extremely fast, it manages to lock onto difficult subjects like seagulls splash landing even at full zoom. For the folcal lenght it is small and not too heavy and it feels well built.Sadly the performance isn't great, and from 150mm to 200mm it is really only usable in bright sunlight; in poor light the lack of contrast and sharpness at these focal lengths result in very "flat" pictures totally lacking any kind of impact.
  • Pros: autofocus very fast and accurate, image stabilisation works well, no other m4/3 lens covers this range, Not too big or heavy
  • Cons: poor performance beyond 150mm, poor performance stopped down beyond f11, poor performance used wide open

Schwacher Kontrast, keine ausreichende Schärfe

Christian Wunderlich "CW", Amazon
14 December 2011
  • Summary: Das Objektiv hatte ich an meiner Olympus Pen. Wer hier mit dem sehr guten Kit Objektiv fotografiert und dann diese Panasonic Zoom verwendet wird enttäuscht sein. Es liegen Welten zwischen Schärfe, Kontrast und Farben. Letztlich bin ich nun doch auf eine Sony Alpha umgestiegen, da ich mit den Objektiven für Tele Zoom bei der Pen nicht zufrieden war.
