Excerpt: Overall you can't lose with this lens.It has good image quality,long reach.I would keep it even as a walk around lens.The only complaint is it does not match the sharpness of a prime lens like the Olympus 45mm 1.8.

Summary: Before buying this I had the Panasonic 45-200. That lens was not very sharp, the autofocus was slow, and it was a bit large and cumbersome. This lens doesn't zoom quite as much, only going to 150. However, it's drastically smaller and lighter. The image quality is a vast improvement, and the autofocus is really fast and quiet. If you really need that extra reach, there are other lenses out there. If you can afford the 35-100 2.8, you should probably get that.
Great lens for the Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera BMPCC

Summary: A perfect telephoto (zoom) lens for the Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera (BMPCC). The O.I.S. engages while REC is activated and works surprisingly well handheld on the BMPCC. Image quality and sharpness is up to par for a slow telephoto lens. All in all GREAT value for the money. I highly recommend this lens!
Excerpt: This lens is my favorit when I travel with family ,I use it almost only outside beceause you need some disatance between you and the subject. I cannt say it is the sharpest of my lenses but sharpness is not the most important thing , fun is the most important!!! Portraits are easy with this lense although the background is not so blured due to small aperture.My friend had a 45-200mm lumix and it is so big!!!
Pros: Low Cost Just The Price, Small and lightweight
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.
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
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.
