Summary: Not one of their premium lenses, but very sharp and great zoom range. 90% of my work is video and all my other lenses are cine primes, so I needed something that would be a versatile walk about lens for general use with my GH4.
Great versitility for an enthusist's road-trips, street and travel.

Summary: I have a number of lenses for my Panasonic G3. This is my 5th. I have some primes. This is really the only lens I need for travel and general use. I love it. I'll keep my 14mm f1 for certain indoor portraits, but this is my road-trip and vacation traveler. I'm an enthusiast, but this cost almost as much as the camera. It was a scary step to buy this and take the plunge. This was designed to get all the shots in all the situations that I need.
Summary: Great all rounder / everyday lens and if u are new to MFT / gh4 or have no other lenses then this should probably be your first lens. I made this unboxing video to to show u what u get - a nice carry pouch is included - http://goo.gl/SPlMHK I write this review having had the lens for 2 weeks.
Summary: I'n not an expert, so for me this lens is the perfect complement to my GX1 with the 14-42mm power-zoom kit lens: lightweight and compact, fast focus, versatile zoom range and bright. Excellent results!! Just keep in mind that the popup flash will leave a dark corner as the lens is big enough to interfere, so bring the kit lens for your night shots.
