  • 1Description

A long-reaching telephoto zoom for Micro Four Thirds cameras, the Lumix G Vario 100-300mm f/4-5.6 II POWER O.I.S. Lens from Panasonic spans an equivalent 200-600mm range, making it well-suited to wildlife, nature, and sports shooting. The optical design incorporates one extra-low dispersion element to reduce color fringing throughout the zoom range, as well as to provide improved clarity and color accuracy. Benefitting the optics, the lens also houses a quick, quiet, and precise linear autofocus motor as well as a POWER Optical Image Stabilizer, which supports the Dual I.S. function in select Lumix cameras. Additionally, the lens also sports a splash and dustproof construction for use in trying environmental conditions.

Telephoto zoom designed for Micro Four Thirds mirrorless cameras, this lens offers a 200-600mm equivalent focal length range.
One extra-low dispersion element is featured in the optical design to minimize color fringing and chromatic aberrations for improved clarity and color fidelity.
Linear autofocus motor delivers fast AF performance that is also precise, smooth, and near-silent to benefit both stills and video applications.
POWER Optical Image Stabilizer minimizes the appearance of camera shake for sharper handheld shooting, and also supports the Dual I.S. function for increased stabilization performance.
Splash and dustproof design benefits working in inclement weather conditions.
Rounded seven-blade diaphragm contributes to a smooth and pleasing bokeh quality.

    Panasonic 100-300mm f/4.0-5.6 reviews

    Lumix G Vario 100-300mm f/4-5.6 II POWER O.I.S. Lens is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 25.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from One of the best consumer lenses I owned I am a nature photographer and I was looking for something smaller and lighter so I ended up with the Panasonic G85 camera. I was looking for a decent lens to do nature shots and after reading a few reviews I ended up buying the 100-300mm II. When I first got the lens I was a bit concerned because of the small size. Coming from some big Nikon and Pentax lenses I did not know what to expect. The lens is tiny compared to my other lenses but it's constructed well. It feels well put together and the zoom ring in nice and smooth. It's also very light. For what it is I was blown away by the sharpness I got from this puppy. After about 400 shots I am not disappointed.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent lens. Much better than the previous model I love this lens. Small and light for the reach, and it auto-focuses very fast and mantains the focus with moving subjects like flying birds. Much better than the previous model. I use it with an OLY OMD EM1 mark II. I let the OLY do all the work on stabilization, and it works like magic. I prefer Oly bodies and Lumix lenses. The Lumix lenses are lighter, smaller, and perform extremely well. I would definitely recommend this lens. Now that I have the complete set of camera and lenses in MFT, I will sell all my Nikon equipment which is excellent but too heavy and big to carry on trips. The sample photos show how the lens stays on the bird and does not get confused by other subjects in the frame.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I would buy all over again, Super Lens I just purchased the latest mk II version of this perennial favorite high power Panasonic LUMIX M4/3 lens, this is now my 3rd version of this leans and all 3 have been great and so much better than the Olympus competitor. I have had several M4/3 kits of gear and keep coming back, I adore many of the Panasonic Lenses but vastly prefer the Olympus bodies, the Olympus Pro lenses are great but very expensive and also much heavier. I highly recommend this lens especially if you want to shoot Wildlife, it has quality, power and portability.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Impressive sharpness in enthusiast lens. Although I have not yet used this lens very much, I'm really enjoying it. It seems to have quite good build quality as well as clarity and sharpness. It's also rather fast for an enthusiast lens. I'm using this together with a Lumix G85. With Dual OIS turned on (in body and lens), I can get sharp results at 1/20th, handheld. The lens is also weather sealed. It actually mates tighter than the 12-60 kit lens with the o-ring at the mount. It feels like you get good bang for the buck, even though it's a bit more expensive than the predecessor.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Why is this lens so cheap? I've just spent the afternoon with my new lens on a g85.� This thing is absurdly good.� Razor sharp, great contrast, outstanding IS, lightning fast focus, dead silent, excellent build quality ... Ok, it's not a fast aperture... but for outdoor photography, it's mindblowingly good. This is a shot I took in low light, sensor cropped with the in-body "Ex Teleconverter" for an effective 1212mm (35mm) focal length.� It was roughly 15' away, and measures around 3".� 1/3s exposure, iso 200, f/5.6. Honestly if I'd paid twice what I did, I'd be happy.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just what I was hoping for I upgraded from the old 100-300 Mega IOS lens for the increased stability in wildlife shots. In test shooting it has performed better than I had hoped. Hand held shots at maximum zoom are entirely feasible well below the rule of thumb 1/focal length shutter speed. Shots have been very crisp pushing this lens to its limits. I do not enlarge my pictures beyond 8X10 usually, so absolute sharpness is not critical for me. This new lens does seem sharper than the old lens. Plus, it focuses fast except in dark settings with little contrast. I do miss the graphics of the old lens.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best value for money Had been tracking this version II lens for some weeks. As soon as I received the 'in stock' alert, I placed the order and lo..the next minute, it went out of stock again! Mounted on my trusted, almost two-year old GH4 I got time only to do a one minute test on auto-focus aperture priority mode with Power OIS on. The results are impressive. The GH4-100-300 II combo is going to replace my Canon 7D-70-200 f2.8 II - 2x teleconverter combo during the vacations for sure. The attached pictures are untouched.
    Date published: 2017-05-16
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent long zoom here are some of my thoughts on this lens vs the Olympus 75-300 II At a glance: Olympus pros: starts at 75mm - no contest here costs $100 less, more when discounted Olympus cons: no weather sealing slower aperture no IS no hood nor lens pouch Panasonic pros: faster aperture (1/2 stop?)I image stabilized weather sealed comes with hood and lens pouch Panasonic cons: starts at 100 - not much of a con since i mainly use this lens at 200-300 costs more - to me, the added features/accessories more than makes up for the extra cost, specially the IS In use: IQ: pretty much equal. oly very sharp at 75 and not bad at 300. panny very sharp at 100 and quite good at 300. both benefit from stopping down a bit at 300.� panny has a bit of an advantage as aperture is faster IS: with the GX85/G85 ibis, the oly works well, the panny's dual IS works better (more shots in focus). AF: AFS - both are fast AFC -� it's in AFC that i find the difference. while the AF jitter/shimmy/wobble whatever you call it still exists, in the Oly, it is very evident and much less noticeable in the panny. So far, in my limited testing, the panny seems to be able to hold focus on the subject better than the oly which has a tendency to shift focus in/out. i don't know if it's because of lens DFD information or the 240 fps af speed that panny advertises. overall - Panasonic
