Summary: Admittedly Panasonic has a newer model with that is slightly faster, has better OIS, and power zoom, but after having just returned from a trip to Costa Rica where I was constantly fumbling with lenses switching back and forth, I decided that a wider range zoom would reduce that fumbling.
Summary: I've used this lens for several months. It works good for a general purpose lens and for a beginner trying to learn tofrography. ((-: It is clear and the autofocus is quick enough to shoot granny running. I like really close up zooming, but this only gives 10X zoom.
This lens is pretty good. It has an awesome zoom that works ...

Summary: This lens is pretty good. It has an awesome zoom that works well during the day. However, with F4-5.8, it's too slow in low light. I'm going to try and upgrade to the F2 version, although the zoom range isn't as large.
Weight and sticky zoom ring knocks a star off of a fabulous lens

Summary: The good news - the stunning picture quality and versatility of the lens gets ten stars. The not so good news - this lens is heavy ... I mean real heavy - by far the heaviest of the array of lenses I'm collecting for my GM1. You definitely need to hang on tight.
Great 14-140 Zoom Lens for the Panasonic/Olympus Micro 4/3 cameras

Summary: This is a very good image stabilized lens that works well on both my Panasonic GH3 and Olympus OMD-EM5 cameras. I turn on the image stabilizer for the Panasonic camera and off for the Olympus camera which has 5 axis image stabilization built in the camera.
Summary: I used it during a high school pageant in the auditorium. I sat on the 11th row on the left side. The pictures quality beat my Zuiko Digital ED 45mm f/1.8. Of course, it is much more convenient as well. In addition, during video capturing, it hunted much much less for focus.
