Lumix 14-42 Review

  • Summary: Purchased this product mostly for shooting video. If used for stills I would say that it would be fine, however for shooting video this lens is terrible. It hunts for focus constantly going in and out of focus. The only way to use this lens is in manual mode where your subject never moves. This lens is a disappointment and completely unacceptable for a kit lens. That being said, I do have Panasonic lenses that I think are excellent this however is not one.
  • Pros: Inexpensive
  • Cons: Did not meet expectations, Poor quality, hunts for focus constantly

  • Summary: When I purchased my GH2, I thought that it would be a good idea to purchase a camera that had a simple lens. I wanted something to get started as most people do. In retrospect, I would have been much better off buying the body only, and purchasing an aftermarket lens. I wasn't expecting huge quality, however I was expecting the lens to function at the lowest level, allowing me to focus and zoom. Big assumption!
