Awesome lens !!!!...Very nice....I use this for video but the quality is so crisp im sure it would work well for photo....Another note, although not really mentioned, is this lens goes into a macro mode and takes excellent close up photos.
Capture clear images and video footage with this Sony Vario-Tessar T* FE SEL1635Z wide zoom lens, which attaches to your Sony E-mount camera and features 5 aspherical lenses and 3 extra-low dispersion elements for sharp, vibrant shots.
Having this focal length coverage (24-70) at such a small compact size is amazing....This has fast become my go to lens as it is so versatile....This allows for a consistent performance throughout the entire zoom range.
Take professional shots with this Panasonic Lumix G X professional lens. It features 12-35mm focal length for wide-angle landscape photos and outstanding portraits, and a continuous f/2.8 aperture puts plenty of light straight on the Micro Four-Thirds sensor. Built-in image stabilization helps ensure this Panasonic Lumix G X professional lens gets great results even in lower-light conditions.
This specific lens is the 2nd version, which increases sharpness, and is updated for the better stability control that works with the camera....Paired with something like the GH5, the stability is great, and autofocus is extremely quick....You'd be better suited with a 12-35mm for "vlogging or wide, and a 100-300(400)mm is way better suited for wildlife....Great portrait lens for the micro 4/3rds system
Pack this Panasonic Lumix G X professional lens with your gear, and be ready for high-action photography or distance shots. The 70-100mm focal distance and f/2.8 constant aperture delivers frame after frame of clarity even when shooting rapid movement.

Great buy...Loved it...Needless to say, I had to return the lens and ended up with the Sigma 17-50 f/2.8 which is a MUCH better video lens that is still decently wide-angle....I found it to be fun to use, and that's probably the most important thing for me since I have more fun taking pictures than I do working with or even viewing them.

Good combo...Good deal...In my city, we have several really large summer festivals; this lens is perfect for taking portrait shots of festival visitors and friends....If used with an APS-C sensor, the zoom on this lens is an effective 80mm, making it adequate for many macro shots, but also functional enough for most portraits, although for the latter, I would prefer a 40mm lens (although the 40mm lens isn't as wide of an aperture at f/2.8 so I would not recommend it over the 50mm if you can only buy one).
