Summary: This is a great leans. Since it is the equivalent to a 70-200 on a full frame you can get right up a gopher's ass with this thing. I mean I was able to get pictures of the Statue Of Liberty from the ferry. This is a great piece of glass. If you can get a good copy used then go for it..
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.
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.
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.
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.
Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh, Strong Construction
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).
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.
Pros: Fast / accurate auto-focus, Nice Bokeh, Strong Construction
