Great products! Good price and size!
6 December 2013
Summary: This is the smallest constant 70-200mm F2.8 equivalent you can buy for the market, compare to the nearest rival which weight more than double and only F4 this gives you pretty good optics at small compact size.
This "Prime" zoom lens is expensive but you get what you pay for!

Summary: I have been testing this lens for a few days on my Lumix G5 and have found it doesn't take badly shot photos or videos and magically transform them into masterpieces!, but when you take very good photos and video they looks amazing! The zoom ring has just the right resistance so you can manually zoom smoothly while shooting video. The auto focus is fast but not super fast. The lens image stabilization is excellent. Build quality is excellent.
Summary: Until Olympus launch their 40-150mm F2.8 next year this is the only game in town if you want a fast, long zoom, M4/3 lens.Image quality and handling are excellent and the weatherproof build quality is first class.If you use it on an Olympus body don't forget to disable the body IS as lens stabilsation (which this lens has) is more effective on longer focal lenghts than in-body stabilisation. It may be a little pricey but it's worth every penny!
Summary: Very expensive but so worth it. As I am just starting out on the photography road I wanted a good lense for concert photos and this is it. Easy to use and takes great pictures. Well worth the money.
Summary: I've recently moved from using Canon SLR's and finding the M43 format to be just as good. This lens stands up to the Canon f2.8 70-200 lens I used to have. The images coming off the camera are just as good, with great colour saturation and bokeh that is really great! A big surprise and only a fracton of the weight.
Summary: Superb lens, images are sharp, nice contrast and colour. My favourite Canon lens was the 70-200 f2.8 L IS; this lens is a great match at equivalent focal length. Have printed images from lens at A3 - no issues that I can detect. Nice and light and complete zoom is within the barrel. Terrific lens.
Summary: This lens is sharp throughout the range even at f2.8 and no noticeable CA (sadly not the case with the 12-35 though). Although a tad expensive, together with the 12-35 f2.8 the 35-100 provides a tremendous focal range and equivalence to lenses twice the weight but with the same quality.
Pros: Lightweight, Rugged, Sharp Focus, Strong Construction
