Panasonic Lumix G Vario 100-300mm f/4-5.6 II Reviews
Good for birding
I have a Panasonic 45-150 lens that I use frequently, the 100-300 gives me a lot more reach. Using it on a monopod is a lot easier when at the max length is advised. Handheld even with ISO engaged is problematic. Compact size and weight are appreciated when moving through wooded areas.
I bought this lens to use with the gh6 and tried it on the om-1 and it works best. I recommend to buy either for Olympus or Lumix users
It's a learning process
Since I just purchased a 4/3rds camera, I admit that I have a lot to learn. Not just about the camera either. Based upon my old Nikon D5100, my go to lens was the 18-200, and for baseball games, I was often at the 180 to 200mm range, so I figured the 100-300 would be perfect. Except that the GH5ii is a FT camera, and at games, even 100mm seemed to be too much, even from 200 feet away. But, with that being said, this lens is a nice lens and I have no regrets with it. It just does not get used as much as I thought it might, but in my search for the perfect lens, I will say that the Oly 12-100 is Goldilocks' favorite. So, if you want to get up close from a distance, this lens is a steal for the price. Try that with a full frame camera and you will have to really open up the wallet.
I used to carry big and heavy similar lenses. Now this is much lighter and its quality is exceptional! It's very affordable and I highly recommend it!
Love this lens. Nice and light with great clarity. I like to photography animals and this lens easily fits right through the cyclone fence elimination any distractions.
Punches above it's weight
This a great lens @ a Great Price. A value lens that works Great
Great lens for birding
I like the size and weight of this lens. The OIS is great for handheld images, some softness when fully extended, to be expected for the distances I 'm shooting at. By using a monopod it delivers sharp photos when pushed out to 300mm.
I purchased this lens to help fulfill my desire to get my own images of the moon. I'm an amateur photographer and learning daily. It's great to use manual mode to see what I get. My camera is a Panasonic Lumix DMC-G85M.
