    Excellent Lens Coupled With The GH4

    |
    Posted .

    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 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.

    When purchasing the Lumix G85 that came equipped with a very good 12-60 lens, I decided we would need a lens with more zoom capabilities. The Lumix Vario 45-150 telephoto lens happened to be on sale for $149 at the time so I added that to the camera purchase. I am glad I did! The lens is extremely light and well made. Attaching it to the G85 is simple and fast and the quality of the photos is fantastic. The zoom ring is easy to yet precise and since it is a Vario lens auto focusing works just as well as the 12-60 lens. It also has manual focus if needed via another smooth ring on the lens and has an anti-shake mechanism that works in addition to the built in feature of the G85 itself. The photos are crisp and not grainy even at maximum zoom range. This is a great addition to a great camera.

    I couldn't find any difference with a full-frame camera zoom lens. Both angle of view and picture quality. It is the best lens.

    Good elevated kit lens

    Posted .

    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.

    Great Camera

    |
    Posted .

    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.
