      Using it on my 100-300mm Panasonic lens which does not zoom as smooth as my 14-140mm Panasonic lens, I've noticed that if the camera is handheld (not on a tripod), there is no benefit since the hand that holds the camera does not provide the stability to prevent the slight tugging (noticeable with video recording) when this lever is used. If the camera is on a tripod, then the tugging is only noticeable in the initial pull or push of the lever.

      There is no need to use this lever on newer (smoother) lenses like the 14-140mm Panasonic lens.

      For video recording, using Panasonic lenses with power zoom is better.

          Comments about Panasonic Lens Zoom Lever for Lumix G Series Lenses:

          I am using it on the Lumix G Vario 12-35mm and it does make a difference in terms of balancing the zoom speed by hand. It is smooth and, most importantly, makes it easier for me to find the zoom ring right away when I have the eye in the viewfinder.

            Comments about Panasonic Lens Zoom Lever for Lumix G Series Lenses:

            I needed a zoom lever for my stock GH2 14-42 lens because I was having difficulty getting a smooth zoom when shooting videos. I considered a number of inexpensive do-it-yourself options but they were all large and unwieldy. The nice thing about this is that it fits the lens nicely with an adjustable strap and the zoom lever doesn't stick up too far but high enough to enable a smoother zoom.

              The AF-100 does not have a provision for a servo zoom. This is an inexpensive handy improvement.

              I use the zoom ring on the kit lens and the 45-200 zoom. It helps with the "stickiness" of the kit lens, and adds finesse to the longer zoom.

                  This lever has a rubber adjustable strap. I give it 4 stars because I don't know how long the rubber will last, otherwise, it would be 5 stars.

                  Comments about Panasonic Lens Zoom Lever for Lumix G Series Lenses:

                  I use it for both Lumix 14-140mm and 100-300mm as the elastic cord is stretched and hooked onto different hooks on the band to suit different size lens barrels.
                  It works well enough but I wish it to be stronger with a longer handle (perhaps an extendable one) to make zooming even smoother.
                  It's over-priced for essentially a fancy rubber band.
                  I've seen alternative products elsewhere.

                    To my surprise, it works with all of my Lumix lenses - 14-45mm, 14-140mm, and 100-300mm. It is adjustable and fits each lens equally well. However, it is most useful in video zooming with the 14-140mm.

                      This product is more useful for the 45-200 and 100-300 lens. The 14-140 has a very smooth zoom without this accessory. The other two lens are a little rougher, not machined quite as well. The lens zoom lever will make the zooming a little smoother.
