Perfect lens for the GH3/GH4/AF100

Creative Jedi, B&H Photo
4 February 2015
  • Excerpt: I shoot a lot of video interviews, talking heads, etc., among other things such as still product photography. This is an excellent general purpose lens for Panasonic cameras such as the AF100, GH3 and GH4. I've been using Nikon lenses with an adaptor, but there is just no substitute for the lens really "talking" to the camera the way this lens does on the Panasonic cameras, even when shooting full manual almost all of the time.
  • Pros: Durable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh, Rugged, Strong Construction

[VIDEOGRAPHY] Must have for GH4 kit! Great O.I.S.!!!

  • Summary: Is it possible to fit such a great piece of glass into a small form factor? Yes. Great colors, great sharpness. As someone who made the switch from EOS to LUMIX, WOW. I. LOVE. MEGA O.I.S. Really, image stabilization is a BEAUTIFUL thing. If this lens was a fine wine, it would match perfectly with the GH4.

Great Lens

  • Excerpt: Having a low f-stop helps with bokeh effects and low light shooting. The lens is small, light and compact. Panasonic touches their lenses with a blue steel overcoat and red lettering, creating a beautiful product. I use the lens when I need auto fucusing for quicker shots (both photographs and video). Keeping the 2.8 f stop through the zoom is bonus. Other wise I use a prime lens if there is time to set up shots.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh, Rugged, Strong Construction

Amazing Video

  • Excerpt: This lens is tack sharp and has just amazing continuous auto focus that makes my video work much easier. It's also the best built micro 4/3 lens I've got my hands on to date which is certainly justified by the price tag. Thing is built like a tank. That said for a micro 4/3 lens it's "heavy" just not heavy enough to list it as a con.

Great walk around lens

  • Excerpt: I've been using this lens for about 18 months now and it never fails to impress. It's quick focusing, feels good, and offers nice sharp contrast. The lens' only drawback is that a 12mm and f/2.8 you do get some chromatic aberrations, as one might expect, but they are easily correctable in Photoshop. Unless I'm just doing street or indoor shooting w/o flash it's a lens which I take with me everywhere.
  • Pros: Durable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Sharp

Great lens

Ryan, B&H Photo

  • Excerpt: Super quick to focus and very sharp. This is a truly great lens. If you're ued to a 24-105 or a kit zoom then you might find yourself wishing it had a bit more reach, but it's a great standard zoom in a fantastically small and light package. And the stabilization is crucial for video and this is one of only two fast standard zooms that I know of with such a feature. Macro distance is impressive too.
