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

no

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

Decent 45-200 lens with decent price!

Light & sturdy lens construction, small size

Decent photos above 150mm, but not the best
