Excerpt: I use this on my Blackmagic Pocket Camera and love it as an all around lens. It's a little slow but has a sharp focus and is nice and light. Image stabilzation works great and it has a solid build quality.
Excerpt: I got this lens with the Black Magic Pocket mainly because it was one of the higher-rated lenses for micro-four-thirds systems. I gotta admit, it was better quality than I expected. High quality plastic outer-shell with a nice weight.
Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Strong Construction
Excerpt: I purchased this lens to replace my 14-45 and 45-150 because I didn't appreciate having to swap out all the time, and I'm very happy with the decision. The 10x zoom range is extremely versatile, and the balance when mounted on my Lumix G6 body is great.
Excerpt: The LUMIX G VARIO 14-140mm / F3.5-5.6 ASPH. / POWER O.I.S. description says "Smooth, silent operation for both photo and video recording". My lens emits a constant whirring sound that is only silenced when the camera is turned off. Silent should mean silent. I would like a silent lens.
Excerpt: I purchased the Panasonic GM1 camera- fabulously wonderous!! Wanted to go for a bit more distance and decided to purchase the 14/140mm lens for it. I had great resistance to obtaining a lens as I wanted to keep it simple as the camera with accompaning lens of that camera already is awesome.
Pros: Consistent Output, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Strong Construction
Excerpt: This lens is sharp. Period. Specially on the sweet spot, somewhere between 5.6 and 8, more than enough for me. For me the whole idea of smaller sensor systems is to be light and mobile so a lens this small with that reach is great. I don't see myself buying 2.8 zooms but to each his own.
Excerpt: This lens was better than I thought it would be. It's not too sharp but looks great with the GH4 footage. If you don't like the extra sharpness look up the GH4 this lens will be perfect. But because of the f-stop it's better suited for outside shooting.
Excerpt: I purchased this lens after trying out a friend's copy. It makes my Panasonic G5 a little front heavy but the extra weight is worth the effort. My lens seems sharp at all focal lengths and distortion is well within the acceptable range for a lens of this focal range.
Pros: Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Strong Construction
