Panasonic Lumix G Vario 35-100mm f/4-5.6 Reviews

Very surprised

By Bart
Rated 5 out of 5

I'm a prime lens user but I wanted a zoom in this range for convenience, thinking that at this price image quality would be a compromise. I was wrong - this lens is as sharp as my prime lenses. Frankly, I was pretty amazed. Maybe I got an exceptional copy (given some of the lenses I've owned I think I was due for a break). I shoot mostly outdoor, nature, architecture, anything I find interesting, and it's getting used a lot (with Panasonic G9).

Tiny and good

This lens is unique. There really is nothing else out there that gives you this kind of telephoto reach in such a small package, on a large-sensor camera. It's one of the reasons I use micro four thirds. And the images are excellent. It's not super fast, but I'm generally using it outdoors in daylight so that's no matter. It has a nice rendering of out of focus elements. Colour is great. It's sharp. And it's freakin tiny! Well worth it if you want a small camera kit for hiking or travel.

Great Little Lens for Lumix Bodies

By Tom
Rated 4 out of 5

First thing let me say I'm using this lens with a strange little camera called the Z-camera E1. I bought it because I wasn't getting aperture, focus or IS communication with the Vello active EF-MFT adapter I was using. I returned the adapter and got this little beauty and it solved all my issues with the exception of IS or MEGA OIS as they call it. For whatever reason, the camera will not utilize the optical stabilization the lens provides. Aside from that, I am pretty impressed with the sharpness, and bokeh the lens produces. AF is a bit on the slow side and it doesn't like to AF on objects closer than 1 meter but it could be the camera. I also noticed when the lens is in AF mode the MF ring is completely disabled which is a little annoying when the AF is struggling to find focus. Again, these could be flukes related to the camera. This being my first experience with the MFT format, I was surprised how small the lens was, and at first, I thought there was a mistake made. Holding it in your hand makes your hands look like Andre the giant hands. It also has a storage or travel position on the lens which pulls the barrel in tight, I'm assuming to make the lens smaller for travel and storage. It confused me at first because the lens will work but will not focus in this mode. So when you get it and you pop it on, remember you'll need to extend it to the proper focal length prior to use. I'm assuming if you are using a Lumix body most of these are non-issues. The zoom is more like 150mm and it works well for sports video (see image). At f4 the lens produces plenty of good bokeh.

Great Image Quality

Excellent image quality across the entire zoom range. Zoom ring is a little stiff, but works okay.

I think I'm going to love this lens,fills the gap between the 12-40 and 75-300. It is very light,compact and sharp. Works well on both cameras Olympus EM10 and EM1. Love the discounted price and free shipping.

Sweet matching for GM5

Stunning image quality, good IS and dimutive size makes this a great travel lens. Matched with my GM5 it's a great travel kit. Small aperture, a given compromise considering its specifications.

The lightest telephoto

An absolutely tiny medium telephoto lens. It is the perfect second lens for the G100. A very nice travel companion.

handy lens

I needed something to fill the gap between the kit lenses (12-32 and 45-150). This lens works well for taking pictures of the kids, wildlife that is fairly close, scenery that doesn't need a wide angle, etc. It is small and light. Great addition to my camera bag without adding much weight.

Does the lens ship with a case and hood?
Asked by: Anonymous
I just received the lens form B&H and there's neither a case nor a hood ... though the included owner's manual does say there *should* be a lens hood. Not sure if there's an error in the info sheet or a missing item.

Two questions actually. First, when focusing, does the barrel move in/out at all or is it internal focus movement? Second, when zooming/focusing, does the barrel rotate?

Hi, the barrel does extend but the front doesn't rotate

question

I shoot Olympus which of course have IBIS. Is there a switch to turn off the Lens IS or an easy way to turn off the IS?
Asked by: Susan M.
Sorry, I didn't read the question carefully. I was thinking it was concerning the 35-100 f/2.8 lens. The lens in question does not have a switch for the IS.

question

Hi, I was wondering : Is it compatible with a Lumix GF7? Thanks!
Asked by: Emylie T.
I can only assume that they are compatible with the Lumix camera since it is made by the same company. I use it on an Olympus OM-D M5 and OM-D M10. The lens is small, light and good outdoors. I've never used it indoors.
