Panasonic Lumix G X Vario 35-100mm f/2.8 II Reviews

Terrific, simply stellar

By Paul

This is a tiny 70-200 f2.8 equivalent lens which produces exemplary results. It's well made and weather sealed. It's a bargain in Micro 4:3 system. It's easy enough to get subject separation with this focal length and speed. It's no use having an exotic glass if it's too big to carry and have with you. This is so light and small (for what it is). Hope this helps.

This is a decent MFT lens which I bought for personal use matched up to my GX85. It makes a nice small travel kit. When the Olympus E-M1 mkII was on sale for half off I grabbed one and was not disappointed. What has happened though, is high resolution full frame mirrorless kits, such as my Nikon Z7 with a 24-200, are just about the same size as the Olympus with the 35-100 (70-200). Yes, most of the full frame lenses are larger but the image quality, especially when cropping/enlarging, are light years apart. Cameras are tools, each has their place. If cost and size matters most, then MFT is not a bad way to go, and the Lumix 35-100 is a good place to start.

Amazing Lens, Great Price

What an amazing lens at a great price! Fast auto focus, tack sharp, with image stabilization in lens. And when paired with a micro four thirds camera, the lens creates a dual stabilization system and its reach becomes equivalent to a 70-200mm lens. It is stylish and well built; comes with lens hood (which as an added surprise!). Happy with the purchase.

GX85 + Lumix 35-100 f2.8 II = Nirvana!

My Oly E-M5 II is pretty much married to the Oly 12-40 f2.8. Now, my Lumix 35-100 f2.8 II, is pretty much married to my Lumix GX85, and I'm using my GX85 more or more, as in most of the time! That's how much I like this lens. It's perfect for portrait, landscape and being creative. It is such a perfect lens and the dual I.S. helps capture perfect, still shots every time. And, as just about every review cites, it is tack sharp from edge to edge!

Replaces 70-200mm f/2.8 lenses

By R

The Panasonic Lumix 35-100 mm f/2.8 II micro 4/3 lens (MFT) is equivalent to a full frame (FF) 70-200mm f/2.8 lens. This review compares the Panasonic MFT lens to the most popular brand that makes 70-200mm lenses. The FF lenses focus the image light over a spread out area four times as much as a MFT lens, necessitating a very large, heavy, and expensive lens commitment. One such lens has 23 lens elements in 19 groups, necessarily reducing contrast. The 35-100mm f/2.8 has much lighter fully multicoated glass, improving AF responsiveness, speed, and accuracy. The Lumix lens does not extend when zooming or focusing, contrasted with the latest FF RF lens, which extends quite a bit. The specs for the Lumix lens states a maximum magnication ratio of 0.1x, which is equivalent to 0.2x for FF lenses. Using a MFT 1:1 macro lens gives you two times the magnification of a FF lens automatically. The higher pixel density in MFT sensors translates into images with much more detail and resolution than any FF lens of equivalent focal length. This has obvious benefits in long distance surveillance and lunar and planetary photography. The old-school 70-200mm lenses have become obsolete dinosaurs in a world where faster, lighter, smaller, and less expensive always wins. The most popular 70-200mm f/2.8s are four times the weight of the Lumix equivalent and thousands of dollars more. My Panasonic 35-100mm f/2.8 II is razor sharp and has extremely fast, accurate, and quiet auto focusing. What's not to like?
