Summary: With the design of the Panasonic PZ 45-175 mm, Panasonic has succeeded in further miniaturizing a telephoto zoom lens without compromising on quality, as is shown in our review. At a focal length of 68 mm, the Panasonic 45-175 mm, like the Olympus 75-300 mm at 75 mm, is better than many fixed focal length lens on a camera with an APS-C sensor.
Pros: Good optical performance, For video: Powerzoom, Optical Image Stabilization
Cons: More expensive than the Panasonic 45-200 mm, which also has a larger zoom range
