Versatile All In One Lens

rdteasley, B&H Photo
17 August 2014
  • 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. This camera and lens combo is my carry everywhere setup and acts as a backup for my DSLR. The aperture specs do limit the lens somewhat but I would recommend the lens to anyone owning a micro 4/3 system.
  • Pros: Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Strong Construction
  • Cons: Heavy

Beauty from a Beast

Traveling Photographer, B&H Photo
22 November 2013
  • Excerpt: I use this lens with my Panasonic GF2. It was the first additional lens purchase after buying the camera a year prior. I am still thrilled with its performance. Provides a focal length range equal to my old point and shoot Panasonic TZ5. Yes it is heavy, isn't sealed against the environment, almost doubles in length when zoomed out, and doesn't have the fastest of apertures but none of those issues have prevented me from getting shots previously unobtainable with the...

12 August 2013
  • Excerpt: If you are a beginner like me, this IS the lens for you. I am using it for about 2 months of casual photography, I never felt that I needed to use different lenses for close shots and long shots. One lens fits all to the most extent....

The Lumix G Vario HD 14-140mmf/lens.

Kay, B&H Photo
2 May 2013
  • Excerpt: I use it for such photos as Graduation Photos of people so that I can get a much clearer picture of the subject than I could with the lens the camera came with. It is not too heavy still, which is the initial reason I bought this smaller camera in the first place. I have left it on the camera all the time and can take a clearer picture and have more variation of depth. I like it.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Strong Construction

Very Good for What It's Meant To Do

WINN, Adorama
5 April 2013
  • Excerpt: This lens is a superzoom with a focal length comparable to 28-280mm on a full size sensor. As such there is a tradeoff; weight and larger minimal aperatures vs convenience. The 14-140 is designed to be used on cameras capable of functioning very well at ISOs from 1600-6400 depending on the model its mounted on. This along with image stabilization makes it useful in many settings. It's great as an everyday lens. Teamed with a fast prime it is marvelous for travel.
  • Pros: Durable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Long zoom range, Rugged
  • Cons: Lens Creep
