Best lens ever!

  • Excerpt: I rarely write a review but I am so delighted with this lens - I couldn't resist. It is so versatile I've almost given up on my other ones. You can get great macro close ups and good distant shots. I'm still figuring out all its capabilities but even for a beginner this is the best lens ever!

Great lens, both for macro and walkaround. Small, but mighty. International version makes sense for this particular lens

  • Summary: Fantastic little lens. One of my favorites for m43. Such a beautiful macro look... The PanaLeica lenses really morph the sharpest of Carl Zeiss together with the color rendering more typical of canon into one. I couldn't be more pleased! Ironically, this also works great as a walk around lens.

  • Excerpt: This lens is absolutelly marvellous. It is razor sharp from f2.8 to f7.1 (the sweet spot is f4-5.6), very usable to f16-18 and, if you need super sharp images you should avoid f20-22.
  • Pros: Sharper Than Olympus
  • Cons: Could Be Sharper F16-20

Solid macro lens when used with GH4

  • Excerpt: Use this as go to macro on the GH4. Fairly solid build and decent in low light. There may be better more solidly built lenses out there, but focus is critical in macro, so I like that with the GH4, autofocus works, as does the built in stabilizer.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight
