Great walk-around lens

Excerpt: I use this as a general walk-around lens. It is on my LUMIX GX-8 most of the time. It is equivalent to a 28 to 280mm lens on a 35mm. It is light weight and small. Most people don't pay attention to me because the camera and lens aren't overwhelming.
Summary: Equivalent to 28-280mm, this lens covers quite an optical range. It's also fairly lightweight and compact compared to a traditional DSLR lens of this range. I have it mounted on a Panasonic GF6, which does seem to add some imbalance to the overall package; it makes the GF6 lens-heavy.
Excerpt: I just received this lens a few days ago and am still learning what it can do. I shoot both photos and video, but mostly concentrate on 4K video. So far, I'm impressed with the clarity, focus speed and zoom range on this 14-140mm lens.
Small and Light Weight, but not better than first version

Excerpt: I like that it's very light weight and physically smaller than the first generation of this lens, but it's not better optically in my opinion and if you don't need the size difference, then the first generation is just as good if not slightly better than this version.
Summary: This 2nd edition of the 14-140mm lens is smaller and lighter and sharper and brighter than the first version. What's not to like? Just one thing, really: With a mechanical shutter, and at relatively low shutter speeds, you can get "shutter shock" with this lens.
