Great compromise lens


Recently puchased this lens after having a Pansonic GX1 with 42mm \'x\' lens for a few months and finding the range just a bit limiting. Have to say coming from the \'point and shoot\' back ground rather than the DSLR downgrade route I find this kit...

Panasonic 45-200mm f/4-5.6 MEGA O.I.S. LUMIX G VARIO review by Marriott


If you don't expect perfection, this is a pleasant lens to use. It's actually quite good. Mine is sharper in the corners than the review on this site indicates. Maybe I just got a top copy. It compares favorably with the Nikon 55-200mm which I use on...

Light, sharp enough, OIS, not too pricey

Could always be better, but a good lens for the cost

Panasonic 45-200mm f/4-5.6 MEGA O.I.S. LUMIX G VARIO review by EdO


Very impressive focal range for so compact a lens. Image corners softer than what I can get with my Nikon 70-300 VR but this is mostly visible in test-chart photos, generally not noticeable in "real world" photos. (When using a 400mm-equivalent focal...

compact and light for focal range, silent AF operation

somewhat soft in corners

Panasonic 45-200mm f/4-5.6 MEGA O.I.S. LUMIX G VARIO review by SETI


I always shoot in RAW and never have any problems with this lens. Yes, it can't create that POP images that can do 70-200/2.8 from both Canon and Nikon, but it's not that lens aim. It's just the best coupling with my G1 for street and candid shots !...

Lightweight, sharp, stabilized

Panasonic 45-200mm f/4-5.6 MEGA O.I.S. LUMIX G VARIO review by kuroneko


if there is available, i would have choose a faster lens over this one but as the only tele lens for G system available now, i dont really have a choice but to purchase this lens...

Long zoom range (90-400mm @35 mm eq), decent image quality, decent price, relatively small & light, great IS

relatively slow lenses (f4-5.6), AF hunt

Panasonic 45-200mm f/4-5.6 MEGA O.I.S. LUMIX G VARIO review by logaandm


Compared to a Canon 100-400L on fullframe? This lens does pretty darn good. If your into micro-4/3 this is a great lens to keep in the bag. My 100-400L rarely leaves the house - this one I carry almost everywhere.

Small, light, decent image quality

Focus can hunt in low light

Panasonic 45-200mm f/4-5.6 MEGA O.I.S. LUMIX G VARIO review by dick1234


Decent 45-200 lens with decent price!

Light & sturdy lens construction, small size

Decent photos above 150mm, but not the best
