    Excellent Lens Coupled With The GH4

    I originally purchased the economical 50-150 lens. After noticing the shaky image because of the lacking image stabilization feature, I attempted to purchase a higher grade model. I received a bootleg lens from third parties e-auction sites, and, spotting two wild in the street. Counterfeiting glass is a big market, do yourself a favor; buy the good lens, in-store, at a place like BestBuy, so you don't blow up your camera. The image quality on the genuine lens is far superior from the counterfeit rendition which is so precious users may not know they have a fake! I am happy I decided to purchase this lens and would recommend it to a friend for all around shooting on the run.

    I initially bought the Panasonic G7 which was a good camera, but I wanted something that could do both video and pictures well. I traded in the G7 for the Gx85 and let me tell you, it is a great camera. In body stabilization for video and more stable pictures. Form factor is great as it is small and can fit anywhere with the small pancake lens attached. I recently took it on a 3-week vacation across the Yucatan Peninsula and captured some great pictures and video. Highly recommend it.

    This lens works well with my Panasonic micro four thirds camera. The zoom is smooth, it focuses well and fast, it's not large or heavy, it's made of metal (not plastic), and it's less than $200. My only ding on it is that even though it has a manual focus ring, that ring doesn't actually move the lens. It just tells the camera to change its focus settings. It works, but it's not what I expected.

    It's not like it's a super premium lens, but for what it is, it's great. It's a cheap, long focal length lens with decent build quality. The only real gripe is that it's a little slow to auto focus. Obviously it's not a 2.8 with super fast motors, but it's still a touch slower than I'd like.

    I'm a novice photographer, wouldn't even call myself a photographer really. I just like to take pics of my family, and this lens is versatile and sharp enough to get the job done. There's better lenses out there obviously, and much pricier ones at that. This will be one you should have in your arsenal if you're a beginner like me.

    I found an open box instance of this lens available for a good price. It came with all accessories expected. The lens was in excellent condition. It is not the fastest lens out there, but very compact; good to take on travel. The zoom range is what one would expect for an economical zoom lens, and complements a kit 14-42 nicely.

    This is a great lens! I am an intermediate filmmaker, and I am satisfied with this product. It does exactly what I expected it to: zooms in to get great distances while keeping the quality expected of a GH4 camera.

    At this price what do you expect, it’s plastic. That doesn’t mean it doesn’t take good pictures because it does. Does it take pictures as sharp as a $1700 lens, of course not. It is a good general purpose lens.

    Not the fastest lens but give it decent light such as outdoors on sunny days and its great. Wouldn't use it low light situations. Good for a beginner or novice without breaking the bank.

    As a beginner I guess this lens is okay. I've been only using it for a week. I have G7 camera the lens kit didn't do justice but this lens can be used for everything.

    I love this glass. I'm new to photography but this is the lens that I reach for majority of the time. I only wish it had lower aperture.

    This lens is a great upgrade from the kit lens that came with my Panasonic G7. The autofocus was my reason for purchasing this item because it is a lot smoother and faster than the kits lens.

    This was my first extension lense for my mocro 4/3 system. It has a finer resolution than the original kit lense (14-42) and I enjoy the moderate telephoto aspect.

    I purchased this as an add on for my son's Lumix G7 to give him better zoom capabilities. Seems to work great so far. Great value for the price.

    This lens exceeded my expectations. It may be light weight - but isn't that the point? In addition, the sales people in the camera division were courteous and helpful.

    I needed a wider zoom range but couldn't spring for a faster lens with better low light capability. It was a decent price and same size as my kit lens.

    pretty decent lens, but not quite fast enough. great for outdoor and good lighting conditions, but not adequate for low light, indoor use unless you bump up your iso.

    Good lens, the only issue is its aperture.

    Well, is just a kit lens, the problem is its aperture, Im more inclined to prime lenses, however, this lens went with the camera as a free lens. So, its ok..

    No, I would not recommend this to a friend
