  • Excerpt: I have used this lens since June. It works well but it rattles. I've sent it back for investigation a month ago but the retailer has now replaced it with a new one. This one rattles as well. This one will be going back after Christmas too. Complete pain.
  • Pros: Easy To Use, Lightweight

Rattles a lot

  • Excerpt: When I opened this lens up I noticed one thing immediately; It rattles. I was pretty disappointed that it sounded like the lens wasn't made sturdy. It might have just been my unit so I sent it back and I am waiting for a replacement.
  • Pros: Easy To Use
  • Cons: Not Durable, Poor Design

Great lens for sports!

  • Excerpt: This is my go-to lens for action footage. I shoot video for my college and this lens is a must for me. Excellent for soccer and capturing indoors volleyball game footage under poor lighting conditions it does good but again excellent for outdoors.

Great lens

Jim, B&H Photo
25 September 2015
  • Excerpt: This is great lens for both video and still photos. It even has a power zoom lens, not too fast, but I haven't used an SLR type camera with power zoom. Image quality is excellent. It's incredibly small and lite too for the power of the zoom.
  • Pros: Easy To Use, Lightweight, Reliable

Good lens - Does the job for the price

Tilly DeHun, B&H Photo
17 September 2015
  • Excerpt: We needed something in micro four thirds that had a power zoom an stayed within our budget. This lens fit the bill. f/4.0 works well for inside shots. We are using it with a Panasonic GH3. My only issue has been that I wish there was something with more of a wide angle. 45-175 is tele to more tele.
  • Pros: Easy To Use
  • Cons: Starts At 45 Mm

Optics fine, functionality not

Ari, B&H Photo
17 March 2015
  • Excerpt: For the price, I should not have expected much. The optical quality is fine, and in accordance with the price point. The problems are that it is NOT parfocal, so you have to refocus at every different focal length.
  • Pros: Decent Optics, Good Focal Length Range, Low Cost
  • Cons: Image Bounce At Zoom End, Not Parfocal

  • Summary: Got this lens and returned it. It simply could not be used in low light situations without a tripod. I bit the bullet and got the Panasonic Lumix 35-100mm f/2.8 lens…AWESOME!!!

Better than I had expected

Hiking Howie, B&H Photo
25 November 2014
  • Excerpt: Got this lens for my Olympus OM-D E-M5. I had the olympus 42-150mm and it sucked in dust while zooming, the Panasonic lens does not extend. It is light and compact, I use it on my Hikes and camping sites.
  • Pros: Lightweight, Smooth zoom
  • Cons: Wish They Had It In 28
