Amazing for the price

  • Excerpt: The Lumix 45-150mm f4 is super compact and very light. Lengthwise it is long as the Canon 50mm F1.4. Extremely compact for a 300mm field-of-view (equivalent). It works amazingly well on my Olympus OM-D E-M10. Fast AF. There is no on-off switch on the lens for stabilization as with other Panasonic's. It really made no difference. Stabilization was controlled automatically by the camera body. AF during video was completely silent and fast. Manual focus was a joy.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh, Strong Construction

Probably a great lens

  • Excerpt: I ordered this lens to use with my BMDPCC it has image stabilization but it's controlled by the camera which the Black Magic Design Pocket Cinema Camera cannot do. Using the BMDPCC hand held with this lens with the BMDPCC's 3X crop factor it was hard to get a steady shot when using the zoom with out a tripod.
  • Pros: Lightweight, Strong Construction
  • Cons: Slow Focus

Fine introductory Superzoom

  • Excerpt: I bought a Panasonic GX7 as a "fun" alternative to lugging around my Canon 7D when out and about. Because I thought the kit 14-42mm might be a bit limited I ordered the 14-150mm. Some people have said that it's too soft at the long end. I'm am enthusiast, so it'll do for until I can afford something faster like the 35-100mm f2.8. The attached photos give some idea of what you might expect hand-held at maximum zoom.
  • Pros: Inexpensive, Lightweight

Great 90-300mm Performance for Micro 4: 3

  • Excerpt: Bought this lens to replace my Olympus 40-150. Compared to my copy of the Olympus this lens appears to be a little sharper at the short & long end. But the difference is nothing major. Build wise this lens is better than the Olympus and feels nicer in your hand. Lens looks expensive and has a metal mount. The zoom ring & manual focusing rings turn very smoothly & it has no zoom creep.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight

small, sharp, well-built, and a bit slow

  • Excerpt: I have had this lens only for a month. Love it so far. I own many other long pro lenses from the DSLR days (mostly Nikon). This lens is impressively small and light weight, yet still quite sharp. The hard plastic body is solid. I wish it was a f/2.8 lens. But then it won't be as small even for a MFT lens.
  • Pros: Easy To Use, Lightweight, Reliable
