Excerpt: I was looking for a long lens for wildlife pictures on an Alaska adventure on a catamaran boat. I did have many opportunities for wildlife pictures (eagles, bears, whales) and taking from a moving catamaran makes taking still pictures challenging.
Excerpt: I use this lens for wildlife mostly. I love how clear the pictures are even with the full zoom. The quality of the pictures is amzing. The zoom is not that easy to adjust, but I understand that it can't be with this type of zoom. It just takes some getting used to the zoom.
Excerpt: Was looking for a micro 43 replacement for the Canon 100-400 which I sold because it was too heavy for me combined with the Canon 7D. Of course, since this lens cost about 1/3 what I paid for the Canon, I was not expecting the same image quality.
Excerpt: I have always wanted a super telephoto lens and now I finally have one. It is a large lens as micro 4/3 lenses go, but it is tiny compared to other lenses that give a 600mm equivalent reach. It balances fine on my G5.
Excerpt: Another great addition to my Panasonic Lumix GH-4 system. While I would love a PRO version (better weather sealing, etc) of this lens, the current one is a good walk-around lens for birds and wildlife. It's not great for really fast moving subjects but I have managed birds in flight.
Excerpt: I bought a GH4 with this lens to made 4k aviation videos for my Youtube channel. ---------. I set the GH4 focus on Manual and creative videos. I set the focus of the lens on infinite, but when I zoom during the shooting the lens losts the focus.
