Panasonic Lumix G Vario HD 14-140mm f/4.0-5.8 ASPH./MEGA O.I.S.

You Pay: $423.00
Product Highlights
  • Full Frame Equivalent: 28-280mm
  • Micro Four Thirds Mount
  • For Panasonic DMC-GH1 Camera
  • Silent Design for HD Movie Recording
  • Optical Image Stabilizer

The Panasonic Lumix G Vario HD 14-140mm f/4.0-5.8 ASPH/MEGA O.I.S. Lens has an amazing focal range coupled with silent focus and electronic aperture adjustments, making this lens perfectly suited for all photo and video applications. Adopting the Micro Four Thirds System standard, the lens offers a wide and long zoom range that is equivalent to 28mm to 280mm on a full frame camera. This will suit a large variety of shooting situations, from scenery to portraits or telephoto shots, in a compact and lightweight body.

The lens uses four aspherical lenses and two ED lenses to achieve dramatic downsizing despite its powerful 10x optical zoom, while minimizing distortion and chromatic aberration. Panasonic's Mega O.I.S. (Optical Image Stabilizer) suppresses the blurring that is commonly caused by hand-shake, making it easy to shoot clear shots even at telephoto range or in dimly lit places without using a tripod.

    First, those that gave this lens 1 or 2 stars, its not the lens, its the users. Typically, "kit" lens are useless, but Panasonic packaged this 12-140mm lens along with the GH2 for one reason, its made specifically for video, plus the Lumix G 14-140mm is a [$] lens alone. This IS THE ONLY lens on the DSLR market made for Auto Focus HD video, super silent and super accurate and fast. I use my Canon XHA1S for serious work but I am using the GH2 with the 14-140mm more now because its much lighter with excellent video quality. People that complained about the Auto Focus on this lens has no idea how to setup their Auto Focus Continuous or AF Single on the GH2, those that complained the lack of f stop with only f/4.0-5.8 didn't really read the discription specifically saying f/4-5.8, were they suprised it didn't have f/2.0? Those that complained about lack of depth of field, once again, learn how to operate the your DSLR and if want good depth of field that's easy to operate, get the pancake lens, don't buy a lens made for HD Video and complain about lack of depth of field for pictures. Overall, excellent lens and I find it extremely versatile for my cinemtography work.

    I wanted to love this lens but I was very disappointed. I think it either tried to do too much in its zoom range or I got a lemon. It's zoom range is unique amongst Panasonics lenses and although i already own the Panasonic 14-45mm and 45-200mm, I decided to give it a try. When I compared it against the aformentioned lenses I noticed that it was a bit soft, then I realized that in AF mode it wasn't focusing properly. I continued to use it in manual mode and noticed other problems. Even at f6.3, f7.1, and f8, where it should perform at its optimum, the 14-140mm was never crisp, just acceptably sharp, and the right side of images showed somewhat smeary detail. Too bad. Great heft and make, but optically inferior to both the Lumix 14-45mm and the 45-200. Lamentably, I had to return it.

        I purchased the Panasonic GM1 camera- fabulously wonderous!! Wanted to go for a bit more distance and decided to purchase the 14/140mm lens for it. I had great resistance to obtaining a lens as I wanted to keep it simple as the camera with accompaning lens of that camera already is awesome. Thought to just try it out and see how I would feel with this lens. Upon viewing the first few shots with that new lens I was sold. The quality of photos look so very professional. It's a keeper for da# sure:) Worth the hassel of switching UP lens.

        This lens was better than I thought it would be. It's not too sharp but looks great with the GH4 footage. If you don't like the extra sharpness look up the GH4 this lens will be perfect. But because of the f-stop it's better suited for outside shooting.

        I purchased this lens after trying out a friend's copy. It makes my Panasonic G5 a little front heavy but the extra weight is worth the effort. My lens seems sharp at all focal lengths and distortion is well within the acceptable range for a lens of this focal range. This camera and lens combo is my carry everywhere setup and acts as a backup for my DSLR. The aperture specs do limit the lens somewhat but I would recommend the lens to anyone owning a micro 4/3 system. The versatility outweighs the limitations.

            Comments about Panasonic Lumix G Vario HD 14-140mm f/4.0-5.8 ASPH./MEGA O.I.S.:

            I use this lens with my Panasonic GF2. It was the first additional lens purchase after buying the camera a year prior. I am still thrilled with its performance. Provides a focal length range equal to my old point and shoot Panasonic TZ5. Yes it is heavy, isn't sealed against the environment, almost doubles in length when zoomed out, and doesn't have the fastest of apertures but none of those issues have prevented me from getting shots previously unobtainable with the small camera or my fixed 20mm f1.7 prime. If I had purchased a lens without those shortcomings I would've paid 3-4 times the price. As a result it does exactly what it was designed to do: provide a large range of focal length with precise, fast autofocus and optical image stabilisation without breaking the bank. Perfect combination of attributes for an ametuer photographer like myself or a professional who needs a spare setup and doesn't want to sell the car to afford it. One issue to note is lens creep can occur anywhere outside of the shortest focal lengths if the camera is pointed downward or swung up quickly.

                I use it for such photos as Graduation Photos of people so that I can get a much clearer picture of the subject than I could with the lens the camera came with.
                It is not too heavy still, which is the initial reason I bought this smaller camera in the first place.
                I have left it on the camera all the time and can take a clearer picture and have more variation of depth. I like it.

                Comments about Panasonic Lumix G Vario HD 14-140mm f/4.0-5.8 ASPH./MEGA O.I.S.:

                Bought a Panasonic Lumix GH3 body and read all the reviews of available lenses. Rented the 14-140 for three days and fell in love.
                This lens takes the place of two; no more switching. It's sharper than I expected, given the comments in some reviews.
                It's heavy and one might wish for something faster than f/4.0 in dimmly lit situations but pumping up the ISO solved most of that problem.
                Bottom line: This lens rocks

                    This is a great choice for this camera and should provide you with everything you need for some time. Excellent and silent AF in video a huge plus.

                    I shoot in snow, rain, and dust, so I wanted a lens that I could keep on my Lumix G5 all the time and not have to worry about the sensor getting dirty.

                    Works for me!

                    I dropped my cold camera and lens in cold powder snow. It was too dangerous to go back and get the camera so it spent the night buried in snow. Found the camera the next morning and it works just fine. Wahoo!

                    For stills and video on a GH1, 2 or 3 this is the best all around lens. Nice wide angle to tele (silent) zoom. Love using with EXT. Put it on and leave it on. I got it for video where I can't be changing lens but find I leave it on my GH2 for stills in all but the darkest conditions.

                          I use it with an AF100. It gives great depth of field but zoom is pretty bulky. Also 14-18mm has image distortion. All around I enjoy it.

                          Comments about Panasonic Lumix G Vario HD 14-140mm f/4.0-5.8 ASPH./MEGA O.I.S.:

                          Whilst fortunate enough to have two Lumix cameras it was still getting a little tedious changing lenses depending on what I was wanting to shoot. (And always having two cameras around my neck!)

                          With this lens I comfortably travelled around NYC without ever needing to reach for the other camera or change to another lens.

                          It has also taken some lovely shots, including nice panoramas for stitching together later, wide shots capturing a large scene and very good close-ups to get in close to the action. (14-140mm or 28-280mm 35mm equivalent.)

                          All-in-all I am extremely happy!
