Spanning a convenient 70-200mm equivalent focal length range, the Lumix G X Vario 35-100mm f/2.8 II POWER O.I.S. Lens from Panasonic is a telephoto zoom designed for Micro Four Thirds mirrorless cameras. Working in conjunction with the versatile portrait-length to telephoto focal length range is a constant f/2.8 maximum aperture that benefits working in a variety of lighting conditions as well as affords notable control over depth of field. A pair of extra-low dispersion elements and one Ultra extra-low dispersion element are featured within the optical design, to reduce fringing and chromatic aberrations, and a Nano Surface Coating has also been applied to suppress ghosting and flare for improved contrast and color fidelity. Complementing the advanced optical design, this lens also features a POWER Optical Image Stabilizer, which is compatible with Dual I.S., and a linear autofocus motor that offers quick, quiet, and near-silent focusing performance to suit video and stills applications. Additionally, this 35-100mm lens also sports a dust, splash, and freezeproof physical design to enable working in trying environmental conditions.

Bright constant f/2.8 maximum aperture maintains consistent performance throughout the zoom range.
Two extra-low dispersion elements and one Ultra extra-low dispersion element combine to significantly reduce chromatic aberrations and color fringing for improved clarity and color accuracy.
Nano Surface Coating has been applied to individual elements to reduce flare and ghosting for improved contrast and color neutrality.

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, dust, and freezeproof design benefits working in inclement weather conditions.
Rounded seven-blade diaphragm contributes to a smooth and pleasing bokeh quality.

    Lumix G X Vario 35-100mm f/2.8 II POWER O.I.S. Lens is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 19.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very nice all-around lens I brought this lens with me to the Galapagos. It was able to withstand the sea spray and one drop (albeit in a padded backpack). At first, I was a bit apprehensive about being able to take wider angle shots but I discovered I could use my G85's panorama mode to assist in wider angle shots. In the Galapagos, the wildlife usually comes pretty close to you so the 100mm reach is usually enough. I didn't really test out the lens in night conditions, however, it was fine on a very cloudy day. The panorama shot below didn't use a tripod, the camera did rest on a wooden railing. Being able to use dual-stability with my G85 was pretty impressive. I took some videos from a really rocking and rolling small boat and it was able to maintain focus of the landscape in the background.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A natural complement to the 12-35mm/f2.8 I have been shooting with the original version of the Panasonic 35-100mm/f2.8 since it first came out. I bought it to be the extension of and complement to the 12-35mm/f2.8. While I don't use the 35-100 with the same frequency as the 12-35, I use it frequently enough to consider it a valuable addition to my camera bag. While I have several prime lenses that I use, when I want to travel with a minimal bag, I usually take only the 12-35 and 35-100. I have never been disappointed with the image quality I get from version I of this lens. I upgraded to version II because I finally have a Panasonic camera body that allows me to use the dual image stabilization. I have yet to find a reason to be disappointed with the version II lens.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good lens, but I think there are better options I used this lens for 1 full month on Olympus OM-D E-M5 Mark II, so users on Panasonic body will have slightly different experience. In general I think its a good lens. However, I sold it after one month to get Olympus 12-100 that replaced 12-40 and 35-100 2.8. Pros of 35-100: Good image quality, 2.8 constant aperture, size does not change, lightweight. Cons: build quality and design aesthetics are lower than Olympus pro lens, stabilization is so-so. And, lets be honest, there is no much subject isolation with either F/2.8 or 4.0 on Micro 4/3 cameras, so I decided to have 1 lens instead of two and 2-stops better stabilization on Olympus body (my own tests).

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Part II of the Holy Trinity This is the second lens of the Holy Trinity of zooms for my LUMIX G9. This lens is fantastic for the money. Small, light, compact, and covers the 70-200mm f/2.8 range of a DSLR. This fits in a cargo pants pocket or jacket pocket. And, it pairs well with the 12-35 f/2.8. I'm using it with the LUMIX G9 for photo and video. This lens does real sharp 4K video through the zoom range even at f/2.8. The focus is super fast and accurate. The zoom ring feels very smooth, and the focus by wire on this lens is very efficient, and works great compared to other focus by wire. With focus peaking, and magnification, it's easy to use a finger to dial in the focus. Very stable with Dual IS 2. This is a great lens for what you get. And it's small size makes it easy to shoot in places that would bring negative attention with a large lens. I always wanted a 70-200mm f/2.8 for my DSLRs. But couldn't justify the huge size and weight of of those lens. With this little lens I get all the goodness of the 70-200 f/2.8 in micro four thirds. No down side to this lens that I can think of. No pics to share, but I do have a YouTube video called "Beaches" shot with this lens and the LUMIX G9.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from small, portable, powerful and sharp I bought this for our GH5 kit and have been using it for Dual IS long shots. The Dual IS is pretty amazing for handheld. It gets a little laggy when panning, but for those closeup shots when you don't have a tripod available, the camera / lens combo works great. A firmware update to fix the lag would be awesome.. but we will see. Great lens!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great lens - excellent stabilization! Just like its 12-35 brother - this is an excellent lens. Stabilization works well. Looks great - High quality. I bought two 12-35's and one of these. I wanted to make sure I had the most stabilization I could get for capturing moving shots on film. Works as advertised.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Great, awesome EXCEPT useless OIS for video So basically panasonic uses the same optical formula, updates the body slightly with a new paint job and "better weather sealing", and slaps on a huge markup.?? Then, to add insult to injury, the OIS is useless for video work and is currently even worse than the V1!? Used with GH5 dual IS II and it is still unuseable for video work unless your only use is to stand still for locked off shots.? Any panning introduces jerky motion to the shot.? It's been out for how long now, a year?? And now FW updates...? Been sitting on my shelf while I still use the V1...

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very good, but not going to blow you away Don't get me wrong. This is a very good lens. But seeing how this is the mark II version, Panasonic should've updated the optics of the original. This lens is compact, and the whole lens is about the same size of my Tamron 70-200 f2.8 G2 lens hood, which is bonkers if you think about it. I've put this in my shorts pocket, and it fits fine. If you need the constant 2.8 aperture, you really don't have a lot of choices. It's either this or the Olympus 40-150 f2.8. Unfortunately, that is a much larger and heavier lens.

    question

    Can anyone confirmed the Panasonic Lumix G X Vario 35-100mm f/2.8 II POWER O.I.S. Lens will work with LANC controller with this camera for zoom?
    Asked by: David V.
    This lens powered optical stabilization but does not have power zoom. You would need this lens: Panasonic Lumix G X Vario PZ 45-175mm f/4-5.6 ASPH. POWER O.I.S. Lens B&H # PA451754XB or this one: Olympus M.Zuiko Digital ED 12-50mm f/3.5-6.3 EZ Lens B&H # OL125035B. These will zoom with LANC control.

    question

    How does this lens' low light performance at f2.8 compare to the Olympus' 35-100 at f2.0?
    Asked by: Anonymous
    The low light performance is the same as the original. This newer model improves on the original in terms of the stabilization and increase of AF speed.
