Don't use for follow focus

  • Excerpt: Great lens for photo work, but if you want to mount a follow focus system it won't work. The focus ring is electronically based. This means that if you turn the ring a quarter turn to place your subject in focus, it won't necessary be a quarter turn back to the original starting location.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Easily Interchangeable, Nice Bokeh

Not Ready for Video

  • Excerpt: This is a great lens IF your purpose is photography only. If you are a videographer/filmmaker, then look elsewhere. When I switched from the Canon 5d to M43 format, I'd hoped that this lens would replace the heavy beast that is my Canon 24-70mm f2.8.
  • Pros: Lightweight, Sharp
  • Cons: Not Stepless, Ois Issues In Video Mode

  • Summary: Review of my unit...! Great lens for stills The problem is with its use for video The image stabilisation does not turn off when switched for tripod work. This may not show at the wide end...but zoomed optically &/or digitally it jitters & shakes!
