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.
Great lens for the Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera BMPCC
11 December 2014
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.
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...
Summary: While I've yet to use this (or any lens) in HD video mode, my snapshots have turned out great with fast focus, and sharp images. This lens (like most Lumix lenses) has stabilization in-the-lens, so keep that in mind.
Summary: It is easy, compact, fast and sharp a lens. But I will change it on Olympus M.Zuiko 40-150mm - which does more art drawing, than Lumix. It is my personal preference. Yours Lumix is a good lens.
Summary: This certainly shouldn't be compared to the 35-100mm f/2.8 zoom, but given it's price it performs very well, producing sharp contrasty images in most situations. It's remarkably small and light.
Summary: I purchased this due to the silent focus and the reduction in size from the 45-200mm which I own. I like the lens. Focus is very quiet and I can make up the reduction in length by using tele-convert on my GF3. Clarity is very good. A little soft at 150.
