Excerpt: This lens balances well on my GX-8. I have had a number of Nikon zooms back in the film days and none were as smooooth as this one is. The internal zoom design is very beneficial and minimal wrist action to go from pin to pin. The auto focus is very fast and almost silent.
Excerpt: My primary use is video and at this point I have no complaints, the lens is sharp all across, good bokeh not as full frame but better than 35-100 f/2.8 where I can't get bokeh at all. Focus and zoom are smooth. Have only for 1 month so can't say much about durability and build quality.
Excerpt: This is just amazing! The size is very similar to a can of soda (without the lens hood attached, still very similar if reversed for carrying around) and has a 70-200mm equivalent field of view. It works really well and is very responsive.
Excerpt: I use this lens on my Panasonic GH4 mostly for video shooting. I really like this lens and I would totally recommend it. The image stabilisation in the lens is also very good and I love that the aperture is 2,8 with our without zoom.
Excerpt: This camera fulfills all of my needs. This lens is razor sharp. Though I do very little video, it is good to know what a great video camera my GX8 is. My Nikon DSLR is now my backup camera, and I am glad to be rid of my boat anchor of a camera. The images are excellent.
Compact & Lightweight Yet More Than Satisfyingly Sharp

Excerpt: I love this lens and my Lumix 12-35 F2.8 lenses so much that I keep them permanently attached to 2 GH3 bodies. And I get lots of compliments regarding the photos I take with them. While neither lens is inexpensive, to me they're worth every penny. --Anthony
Excerpt: I wanted a small light weight telephoto companion for my sony full frame range of 24 to 70 mm. To accomplish this i paired the Pano 35 to 100 lens with a Pano GM5 body.. It is really easy to pull out when reach is call for.
Summary: Works well for doing indoor shots of musical events. I used it handheld (with its stability control) and got good results. (But, of course not as good as when using a mono or tri pod.) I am pleased that the lens remains roughly the same length when being zoomed.
