Reviews and Problems with Panasonic LUMIX G X VARIO 35-100mm F2.8
Showing 1-3 of 3
It's a good $750 lens

Summary: Having worked with quite a bit of good equipment, I was interested in micro Four-Thirds as Olympus' Four-Thirds business seemed to be winding down. I bought a Panasonic GH3 with the 35-100mm f/2.8 and the 45-200mm f/4.0-5.6 lenses. This compared to my Olympus E-5, 35-100mm f/2.0, and 50-200mm f/2.8-3.5. I expected less but I was a bit shocked. As I photograph sports, I need equipment that is weather-sealed, such as the 35-100mm f/2.8 and the GH3 body.
Excerpt: Bought this lens to go with the 12-35, which is a very good lens. This was sharp at the center, but never got sharp across the frame at any aperture. Maybe I got a bad sample, but at this price I should not have to do the QC. Returned.
Word of warning - extremely slow delivery!!! The lens itself is wonderful

Summary: I've tried this lens in a store and borrowed from a friend - considering the size difference with its APS-C analog 70-200mm f 2.8 this is an absolutely amazing lens that does not extends. The only negative besides the price that according some reviews it is prone to flare more than one would expect in this price range. The rating reflects my customer experience, not the lens.
