High quality images, compact zize

  • Summary: Overall, this is an outstanding lens for serious enthusiasts or professionals. It is incredibly sharp in the center, with some falloff in sharpness at the extreme edges wide open, but that is mostly gone by F4.0. The fast aperture makes this a great lens for lower light conditions. The small size and weather resistant construction make this a go anywhere lens, suitable for landscapes (even in wet/snowy weather) and portraits alike, and suits both Panasonic and Olympus...

Excellent Lens, but read the last paragraph.

  • Summary: I used to shoot with a DSLR and had a Canon 70-200mm f/2.8 lens. It was wonderful. I decided to move to a Panasonic Lumix GX7. The first lens I bought was the Panasonic 35-100mm f/2.8. I've been very impressed by this lens. The clarity is a little less than the Pro Series Canon lens that I had, but to really tell the difference I have to look at my images at a 3:1 magnification or greater. The size and weight is SO MUCH BETTER!!!

Excellent lens for u4/3 cameras.

rrawlins1, Ebay

  • Summary: I purchased this lens used as it was too costly to buy new for me. I have used it extensively on both a Panasonic GH3 and on an Olmypus OMD-1 (w/o lens stabilizer on) and it performs beautifully. The images are tack sharp and it is a delight to use in low light (ballet performances) for both still and video use. It is functionally noiseless for video. Equally important it weighs next to nothing compared to my equivalent 70-200mm Canon L lens.

A great addition to my kit

  • Excerpt: I wanted a high quality professional grade zoom to use on my Olympus OM-D E-M10 and compliment my Olympus 12-40mm f/2.8 Pro. Now with just two lenses, I have an MFT focal range of 12mm to 100mm at F/2.8. The Panasonic 35-100mm f/2.8 is well built and light for a lens this size. The lens does not extend when zooming, so the length remains constant from 35mm to 100mm. Autofocus is fast and accurate and the image quality is first rate with nice Bokeh when wide open.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh, Strong Construction

Great lens, except AWFUL OIS for video

TigersFan, Amazon
13 November 2014
  • Summary: This is a wonderful lens that I've been enjoying using for the last 6 months with my GH4. It's sharp, well constructed, and doesn't have any obvious technical flaws (distortions, CA, vignetting are all minimal or non-existent). HOWEVER, the OIS is not only useless for handheld video, it's actually worse than none at all. It does work well for photos.

Best m4/3 Tele Zoom

bufatutu, B&H Photo
13 November 2014
  • Excerpt: I've had this lens since it came out almost exactly two years ago. Though its reach is somewhat limited, its sharpness is unexcelled among m4/3s zoom lenses. In quality and function, it reminds me very much of my old Canon 35-100 f4L, which was my favorite tele zoom on my former 7D. The imgage quality is at least one or two notches above any of my other m4/3s zooms and very similar to my Oly 75. The construction is first class.
  • Pros: Fast / accurate auto-focus, Nice Bokeh, Strong Construction

Hockey Shots- Better than expected!

NightingaleSean, B&H Photo

  • Excerpt: Only had it a few weeks, but getting excellent shots in low light hockey rinks. I have yet to get outside, but I can tell it will be in its element with proper light. Still learning the vastness of the GH4's capabilities, but am extremely satisfied with output of photos & video.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Rugged, Strong Construction
