Suffers from known Micro Jitter issue that Panasonic refuses to recognize.

  • Summary: Unfortunately this very expensive lens is marred with a bad flaw when used for video, that Panasonic can likely fix very easily, but they are not acknowledging the issue. The problem is what is referred to as micro-jitter. When hand-holding, you will want to use the built in Optical Stabilizer.

did I get a bad lens? O.I.S. micro jitters limit this lens to tripod-only use when shooting video

  • Summary: I just bought a Panasonic 35-100mm lens, and handheld video shooting produces excessive micro-jitters when the O.I.S. is enabled. Handheld, my Panasonic 12-35mm and 14-140mm lenses are very stable in O.I.S. mode.

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.

Disappointing

  • 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.
  • Pros: Built Well

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.
