Panasonic 14-50mm f/2.8-3.5 ASPH MEGA OIS Leica D VARIO-ELMARIT review by J-Rod85

  • Summary: This lens in one of the main reasons why I bought a L1. I wanted to start with a bright zoom and this lens does not disappoint. This lens delivers sharp results and it is built very well. The main drawbacks are its compatibility and practicality with the entire Four-Thirds system. Its image stabilization is only a benefit to users of Olympus 400 series or older DSLRs. The size and weight of this lens also makes it a strange fit on those small bodies.
  • Pros: Superb construction, aperture ring on LUMIX models, Sharp, Bright
  • Cons: Heavy, Expensive, aperture ring won't work on Olympus,

Panasonic 14-50mm f/2.8-3.5 ASPH MEGA OIS Leica D VARIO-ELMARIT review by brandoneu

  • Summary: A very good lens optically. Sharp, vibrant colors. Mega OIS works as advertised, though I'd rather use the IS on the E-3 because the OIS in the lens only provides 2 stops. Its plasticky exterior is a little disappointing considering its price tag and the weather proofing offered by Zuiko counterparts. The lens cap and hood comes off very easily, so you might need a UV filter for this lens. If you've some cash to burn, this lens is priced at USD 900 on B &H / Adorama.
  • Pros: relatively fast aperture (f2.8-3.5), sharp accurate focussing
  • Cons: flimsy plastic lens hood and cover, expensive, no weatherproofing

  • Summary: Es una lente con un rendimiento sin duda profesional, cunado verdaderamente descubres de lo que es capaz es cuando disparas en Raw. Invertimos miles de euros en cámaras pero la lente es el alma y esta es muy noble.
