Summary: Bought this lense before i bought the camera. Using it on a GX7C Panasonic camera and reasonably impressed. Have not quite got it taking sharp images yet but i am still testing it. Liked the electronic Zoom but had a little problem with the focus at first but now seems to be working fine. This is a good quality lense that im sure will give me years of pleasure.

Summary: Delivery prompt and packaging appropriate. Excellent lens, but internal camera flash casts a shadow with the lens being much larger. You will need to use an external flash. Lens excellent for long range photography, birds, wild life etc. 350mm equavelent. Recommended.

Summary: Exceptional, recent trip to Europe and this lens shines. Its a better deal than the 150mm and better build quality than the 200mm. Photos are sharp and the power zoom provides smooth zooming perfect for video. Build quality is good for a plastic lens and the focus wheel is very smooth.
Summary: The plus points are that it is small, lightweight and compact. It also comes with a lens hood and case. The negative points is that it is rather expensive. What I like most about this lens is its power zoom which is very smooth in operation. The zoom range is also good. Overall I am very pleased with it.

Summary: It's a Leica lens and that should be enough, but this is a peculiar one: very light and soft by touch, very precise and accurate with images, is a wonderful lens for street photo as well as familiar photo: very versatile. A very good buy!
Summary: Added to my lumix DMC-GM1 this gives incredibly long range shots of amazing clarity. Because of the internal zoom it isn't too big and is quite light so the balance of the camera isn't affected unduly. Good value worth looking at.
Excellent lens - high quality images and very responsive

Summary: I have used this lens for the last week and taken over 100 images with it. I am really impressed with the detailed images - significantly better than the Panasonic 45-150mm f4-5.6 which I also own. The zoom reach is great, and the way the zoom works (internally) is superb - it is really quick and it means the lens doesn't extend at all. The barrel coupling to the lens is clearly electronic but the linkage is really well done and hardly noticeable.
