... with my Panasonic GH4 DSLR (and they are a great fit together)
9 May 2013
Summary: I bought this Power Zoom lens as an additional ‘environment specific’ long-distance lens for use with my Panasonic GH4 DSLR (and they are a great fit together). I use this lens primarily for video, and the Power Zoom offers smooth zooming functionality and great optics.
Summary: This is one of those lenses which underlines the value of the micro 4/3 system. In conjunction with a Panasonic GH3 the results are superb. I believe that for 99.999% of photographers nothing heavier for 350 mm (Eqiv) is needed.
Summary: I took a risk buying this as early comments from pixel peepers looked discouraging. I only shoot stills and had bought into the G2 system to use when my D300 system was just too heavy. My D300 with its 18-200mm and Sigma 10-20mm totals 1970gms.
Summary: Before I start, I dunno if it's only a problem with my lens or a conception problem. This lens has a big problem with the stabilizer: a focal length of 175mm must speeds below 1/400", and with a maximum aperture to f/5.6,I'll let you judge for its ability to take pictures in cloudy weather even at...
Summary: Superb lens, well manufactured, sharp end-to-end and the power zoom works fine with the panasonic phone app too. Considering this is effectively a 350mm zoom on M43 its so light for a lens covering that focal length, highlighting one of the key benefits of the M43 system.
Summary: I'm using this lens with a Panasonic DMC-G7 camera. The firmware versions as of November 2015 are 1.2 for the lens and 2.0 for the camera. The lens handles nicely on the G7 and for me it feels more at home than the 14-42 standard lens that came with the G7.
