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.
Summary: This lens really completes the Pansonic G5 and its well worth the money as its so reasonably priced for a great lens. I highly recommend you llok at buying this product from Pansonic if you have a G series camera.
